    ROLF.

    But when you needed to get the files from a PDP-11 running RSX-11 or
    RT-11, Kermit was there for you (8 inch floppies in now weird formats,
    aside). And it didn't make any difference where the "to" was, since
    there was a Kermit for that, also.

    Block/record format files to streams, too. EBCDIC to ASCII. Sigh.
    Life is just so homogeneous now-a-days...
