TerminALL is atelecommunications program designed to emulate any number of popularterminals, including the DEC VT100 series.  Disk APPLE-3-WAP-TEL-12 contains the manual for the program and is self-booting. Disk APPLE-3-WAP-TEL-13 offers the actual TerminALL Program Disk - in self-bootingPascal.SOME IMPORTANT NOTES FOR TERMINALL USERS       TerminALL  is  an  interesting  telecommunications program, but it hasone  major problem.  It can not upload or download!  It was primarilydesigned to  allow the Apple /// to emulate any of a series of terminals andapparently the   authors  did  NOT  think  uploading  or  downloading  wasimportant  or necessary.       As  such,  this  program  is  basically  worth  using  by  a  beginnerinterested  in  learning how to use a program that can connect a computerwith a computer  service  like  CompuServe, Genie or Source or a BBS, likethe WAP Telecommunications System.  TerminALL can be set for different baudrates and protocals,  as  with other telecommunication programs.  We wouldrecommend you read  the  manual carefully to familiarize yourself with itsoperation.  If you want  to connect to a BBS or telecom service likeCompuServe, you can probably use  any  of  the  available terminal modes.But the default mode, VT52  is a standard  that  will  serve  you  well ifall you wish to do is "get your feet wet" in the wonderful world oftelecomputing.        Despite  it's  rather  glaring  negatives, TerminALL is awell-written program  that  works with few, if any problems.  It is easy tolearn and use.  The  WAP  /// SIG again thanks FOXWARE Products for placingTerminALL into the public domain for all to use.  AUGUST, 1989 NOTE:        Since this was written, the /// SIG has placed a number of other telecom programs and information into the PD library.  Check out disksAPPLE-3-WAP-TEL-04 or APPLE-3-WAP-TEL-05.  Please also note there are a number of information fileson both sides of this disk.  Information on other telecom programs, vendors,etc.  all are ASCII (Text) files and can be read from Menu.Maker or using theprogram PRINT.ALL on this disk. You can also load these files into any Apple/// (or //) word processing program.ADDITIONAL NOTEThe  PASCAL  source code to this program is available from your SIGleadership if  you  are  a  programmer  wishing  to  take a look at howTerminALL was put together  and/or adapt it to your own needs.
