SoftKlone Distributing Corporation, the publisher of the MIRROR III personal computer data communications software package, is releasing MIRROR III LAN this month.
PRISM, MIRROR III's communications programming language, provides network managers with the tools to customize and fully automate the communications activities of each workstation.
The MIRROR III LAN basic package provides a license for eight workstations and is priced at $595.
MIRROR III, the popular CROSS-TALK XVI-compatible program, was reviewed in these pages in March.
One difference is that MIRROR III and CROSSTALK XVI use SEnd to upload a textfile, while Mk.4 uses UPload.
MIRROR III - Full-Featured Communications During my Apple IIc days, I used ACSII Express from United Software Industries, Inc.
Rather than covering the program as a whole, I'll touch on the new features found in MIRROR III, version 1.0.
CommPressor is used between two users of MIRROR III, or will also work if the remote modem supports CommPressor.
PRISM is the most important addition to MIRROR III. If you are already familiar with MIRROR and Cr, you'll appreciate it even more.
The "Pulldown" script does what it sounds like: creates pulldown menus for MIRROR III commands.
MIRROR III retains all the other features of MIRROR II, including the "Password Maintenance Utility" (for security), a usage log, 15 emulations nine protocols, an editor, several DOS commands (without exiting to DOS) background operation and extensive help screens.
