NAME
       frommac - Receive files from the Macintosh

SYNOPSIS
       frommac [ - options ]

DESCRIPTION
       frommac receives files from the Macintosh and processes them subject to the options speci-
       fied.

OPTIONS
       In the absence of any options, frommac receives a single file and stores it  in	MacBinary
       format,	giving	the  output  file ".bin" extensions and placing it in the current working
       directory.

       -3     Write files in fork format (.info, .data and .rsrc files.)

       -f     As -3, but empty data and rsrc files are not created.

       -r     Write resource forks only (.rsrc files.)

       -d     Write data forks only (.data files.)

       -u     As -d, but the codes for CR and LF are  interchanged,  the  filename  extension  is
	      .text.

       -U     As -u, but there is no filename extension.

       -a     Write files in AppleShare format.  This option is only valid if the program is com-
	      piled with support for some form of AppleShare.  The current directory  must  be	a
	      valid AppleShare folder.

       -s     Write received files to standard output in MacBinary format.

       -l     List every file received.

       -m     Receive  multiple  files.  Entering ^X (CNTRL-X) after the last file will terminate
	      the program.

       -x     Use the XMODEM protocol for transmission.

       -y     Use the YMODEM protocol for transmission (not yet supported.)

       -z     Use the ZMODEM protocol for transmission (not yet supported.)

       -o     Use the pre-beta version of XMODEM.

       -T     Allow for time-out detection during the protocol.  Normally you will not need  this
	      option because on occasion, when network delays do occur, time-out detection inter-
	      feres with a good transmission.  Also, when for some reason the connection is  bro-
	      ken  the program will normally receive a hang-up signal and terminate.  However, in
	      some situations it might be necessary to early detect time-outs (because of  commu-
	      nication	loss  or whatever, without loss of connection).  You should check whether
	      use of this option has profits in your situation or not.	Normally  when	transmis-
	      sion  errors did occur entering a number of times ^X (CNTRL-X) will gracefully ter-
	      minate the program.

       -V     Gives the patchlevel of the program, and	other  information.   Other  options  are
	      ignored and the program quits immediately.

       -H     Give  short  information about the options.  Other options are ignored and the pro-
	      gram quits immediately.

BUGS
       As this is a beta release, there may still be some problems.
