Comment: Re: SHK 4.0209 Electronic Text Concordance Program
Great news about a Concordance program, but how do you get into FTP if
your college does not have it, whatever it is? What about Gopher, the
program that gets one into library card catalogs?
[Editor's Note: FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. FTP is similar to
TELNETing. If your system supports TELNET, it probably also supports FTP.
FTP, although it can be used to retrive text files, is the best way to
receive executable files from one server to another. The problem I
encountered was that FTP procedures differ among platforms -- FTPing on a VAX
is quite different from FTPing on an ULTRIX machine. I would suggest you
contact someone in your Computer Center about the procedures specific to the
machine you use. Also you must be able to transfer the executable files from
your mainframe account to you local computer. --hmc]
