Comm. SW Is Free To Colleges, Libraries
For a limited time, public libraries, universities and colleges can obtain a free copy of BananaCom Customs, communications software designed for first-time modem users.
Upon installation, the program finds the modem, sets the communications (COM) port and speed, and dials a pre-selected modem service without any user intervention. Users need not worry about technical issues such as terminal emulation.
BananaCom Custom comes with an unlimited distribution license, so copies can be distributed as needed to students or faculty at no charge. The software supports auto ZModem, ANSI and VT100/102, and seamlessly dials bulletin board systems or Internet shell accounts. Banana Programming, Missoula, MT, (406) 543-1928, www.split.com. D
