Subject: how DO you FTP files from mc?
As one can see from the header, I'm on the brl machine (a PDP-11/70
something running Unix version something) I've never been able to
transfer a .com file from mc through ftp to brl and then MODEM down-
load to my micro. I've been quite sucessfull tranfering .hex and .txt
files. From the ongoing discussion, I think I know why this is but
I'd really like to know how to get around it.
I have ftp'ed a .com and a .hex file of the same program, loaded
the .hex file, and uploaded the (loaded) .com file to compare with
the original ftp'ed .com file. NO RELATION! I was hoping that I could
find those four characters that ITS uses as a file identifier (from
446353300000 octal = 223,072,330,0 as first four bytes) No luck.
So how do you do it?
