Short:    CGTerm 1.7b2/OS4 - an SDL-based Telnet BBS C/G terminal
Type:     comm/term
Author:   Alex Carmona (AmigaOne.at.theworld.net)
Uploader: Alex Carmona


CGTerm is an open source, platform independent terminal program for C/G
telnet BBS:s.
It's supposed to compile and run on any POSIX compliant OS with the SDL
library installed.


This is an updated OS4 port of CGTerm 1.7 BETA 2

This release includes both clib2 and newlib versions of the programs.
Because newlib v3+ isn't yet available to the public I had to recompile
it with clib2. Once newlib 3+ becomes available you can rename the
*.newlib3 files, e.g. rename CGTerm.newlib3 to CGTerm.


- Added clib2 version

- Modified the keyboard reference to allow the program to keep running
  the first time it's used even if the config hasn't be saved yet.

- Added fresh bookmarks to the default config.

- Changed the directory handling to allow selecting dirs with the enter
  key, not just the space key.

- Switched ".." to "/" for Amiga-friendly directory handling.

- Replaced any reference to '/shared/cgterm/' to PROGDIR:data/ in the
  sources. That means all kbd, wav, bmp and cfg files are in data/ now.

- Adjusted the link and compile options in the Makefile.

- Cleaned up the Makefile, removed all warnings. Easy to compile now.

- Cleaned up the source code, all Amiga-specifc changes are enclosed
  between /* AC */ and /* ac */ markers and use #ifdef statements.
  This keeps it portable and hopefully the changes will be merged with
  the main source tree.

- Improved the install section. "Make install" now creates a unique
  time-stamped drawer each time, using the format CGTerm-MMDD.HHMM
  which is handy to avoid overwriting files when building versions for
  clib2 and newlib.

The latest official source code can be found at http://paradroid.net

Greetings to spotUP

Thanks to Steffen (-ISDL it is, 'sh sdl-config --libs' returned -lSDL)

Big thanks to Nicomen for spending over an hour helping me get the clib2
version working. I couldn't have done it without him, and you'd have to
wait for the newlib 3 public release.
