Problems with XY/Z
From: TIMKIENTZLE To: ALL

I’ve been continuing to work on XY and Z. To date, I’ve heard almost
nothing from people using them. What problems have you had?
What points in the documentation are unclear? Is anyone using
them at all?
– Tim

    Tim,

    Haven’t had a chance to really exercise your new versions of XY and Z.
    Don’t expect to get to them for a couple of weeks.

    I did try to download your new TEX stuff. First attempt was at 14400.
    Got 2,143,232 bytes of the latex_tar.gz file and then error’d out. Time was
    1 hr 11 minutes. Wasn’t able to successfully download the 2 files following.

    This morning I logged in at 9600 and was able to successfully download
    latex_tar.gz, tar and gzip using XY. Time for latex_tar.gz was 1 hr 13
    minutes. Works out to about 5158 baud.

    I’ve used xyz a few times…So far, I can’t recall any perticular problems
    in the transfer part, alhough, I have noticed, that if frorked from
    a shell (S) in sterm, and you are at the bottem of the screen when you
    start it, it will whipe out the transfer stats line when it finishes (ie. you
    need to put in an extra CR or two to scroll the screen after it is done..)

    Tim,

    Been using the Ymodem-G side to download from a doz BBS
    that’s local to me.. Works every time. It does do some
    hand shacking first, then down comes the files.

    Will get back to you later after I do some uploading
    and see how that goes Tim.

    Haven’t tryed the x/ymodem yet, as I saw your interest
    in the ymodem-g side of it. So far so good.


    John –

    Well! YModem-G is more popular than I thought it would be! I guess
    a lot of people trust their modems more than I do.
