This reminds me of a question of my own that is just a bit off topic. I
currently use Hyperterm as part of a development environment. Since
Hyperterm is included in Windows distributions, it is one less software
requirement placed on customers who use the same environment I do (we
offer an incredibly expensive and clumsy alternative as well that still
requires Hyperterm or equal).
An important feature of Hyperterm is that it can send a text file
without file tranfer protocol. This is a very important (actually
essential) feature. Can Procomm do that?
