  • SyncTerm

    From Mojo@VERT/MOJO to All on Tue May 24 20:39:01 2016
    Anyone out here use SyncTerm for there telnet client?

    Is there a way with this program to be able to paste text into a message when posting a new message to a echo? I post recipes into a echo often and it is easier if I can paste them into the echo and not have to type them all in by hand.

    At this time I do this task wiht mtelnet but I really don't care that much for that program and would rather use SyncTerm if there is a way to do this.

    Thanks

    whaaaa? whats so bad about mtelnet!

    Personally, a couple things I've noticed about mTelnet:
    - It doesn't seem as fast as SyncTerm. Particularly when the BBS displays a screenful of text, it seems to happen more slowly in mTelnet than SyncTerm.
    - In rare cases, I've seen glitchy ANSI displaying in mTelnet

    I suppose mTelnet is not so bad.. I like how it looks, but I personally tend to prefer SyncTerm.

    So does SyncTerm.. To paste in SyncTerm, you can right-click on the SyncTerm window. To copy, I believe you can just highlight and release the mouse
    button to copy to the clipboard.

    I don't have an example off the top of my head.. As I said, it's rare.

    Also, mTelnet uses PageUp and PageDown for upload & download, meaning BBS doors that use those keys won't respond to those keys.

    What is text upload? Is that different from a file upload? I've never heard of a "text upload" before (and I've been using BBSes since 1992).

    i think you have heard other people talk of problems, and other people heard that one or two people say there are problems.

    each time i hear a synchronet person talk about this problem they cant provide an example.

    Also, mTelnet uses PageUp and PageDown for upload & download, meaning BBS doors that use those keys won't respond to those keys.

    doorway mode. and you probably should be/have to be in doorway mode anyways if you have to use pageup or page down. dont know of any doorgames offhand that require page up and page down. seems like a strange thing to require, anyways. ---

    It's for navigating lists of text items a page at a time. I'd think the PageUp and PageDown keys would be straightforward. What do you find strange about that?

    That sounds like a useful feature. It's possible I may have seen it before
    but have forgotten about it. My favorite terminal software back in the day
    was Telemate, and I had used Telix and Procomm Plus a bit too. I'm wondering if they supported text upload and I forgot or didn't realize it..

    Yeah, they usually called it "ASCII Upload" however. SyncTERM has it too.

    this might be all hypothetical in your mind, but i dont think i've used many bbs doorgames that required the use of pageup and pagedown.

    and like i said, if they needed those command keys, flip on doorway mode.

    Maybe not many games, but utility doors could use those keys. Things with lightbar lists, for instance. There are message/file area choosers that use PageUp and PageDown to navigate the lists. So no, it's not something hypothetical, there are actually BBS mods that use those..
