1. when transferring files automatically from a mainframe to a given
cp/m system, i take it that one needs a program running on the mainframe
(which is specific to that mainframe) to handle the transmission part
of that job. Anyone know how to find out what program is needed on the
mainframe? For example, i want to transfer files from a TOPS-20 to my
CP/M system. What do i need on the 2060?
Apparently, I also need something on my cp/m system. Will MODEM7 do? Can
it be used for ALL mainframe-->CP/M transfers?
2. From a maintenenceof system hardware integrity standpoint, is it
better to keep a system continuously on or to turn it off when you don't need
The system in question had both hard and floppy disks.
Of course, if the time between on-off-on is large (days), it's obvious that
it's better to turn it off and then on. If it is small (minutes), it's
obvious that it's better to leave it on continuously. What's the crossover
