"Tell Bill where to go today!"
What is it?taTelnet is a cross-platform telnet client utilizing the wxWindows cross-platform GUI library. The motivation is that most telnet's (especially M$'s) don't work properly and what's worse is that you can't get the source code to fix it.
Guess what? Here is a telnet program that emulates a DEC VT100 terminal with an extended "PC" mode. And if it doesn't work quite the way you want or is just plain broken, you can get the source code and fix it.
We appreciate additions and bug fixes. The whole point here is to create the best telnet program we can utilizing the collective brain power of the worlds programmers.
If you download taTelnet and find it useful (or not), please let me know at derry at techass.com. Praise, critizism, and/or comments are greatly appreciated. I want to know if it works for you or not. If you have problems, please email me and let me know what they are. I can't fix problems if I don't know they exist. Don't assume I know about something, email me and make sure I know.
DocumentationNone yet (sorry :)).
Known Bugs and ToDo's
How portable is it?Currently it is portable to any platform to which wxWindows has been ported. This includes M$ Windows (haven't tested Win3.1, though), Linux, and most other Unixes (including Solaris and HP/UX) and hopefully the BSD variants. The Mac and OS/2 ports of wxWindows are under heavy development at the moment, so support for these should be available soon (Mac very soon, I hope).
LicenseAll of the code with the exception of the GTerm code (VT100 terminal emulation code in the gterm directory, which is under a very GPL like license) is released under the GNU GPL license.
