encoding for repeated characters. If it can, then files with long
strings of
repeated characters will be transmitted very efficiently. Columnar
data, highly
indented text, and binary files are the major beneficiaries of this
Section 5 -- DECsystem10 Kermit
Kermit File Transfer
The RECEIVE Command
0Syntax: RECEIVE [filespec]
0The RECEIVE command tells Kermit-10 to receive a file or file group
from the
other system. If only one file is being received, you may include the
filespec as the name to store the incoming file under; otherwise, the
name is
taken from the incoming file header. If the name in the header is not
a legal
TOPS-10 file name, Kermit-10 will store it named in accordance with
the FILE
NAMING option in effect.
0If an incoming file has the same name as an existing file, Kermit-10
creates a new file name with an extension of three numeric digits or
the existing file depending on whether or not FILE WARNING has been SET
ON or
0Incoming files will all be stored with the prevailing bytesize, 7 by
which is appropriate for text files. If you are asking Kermit-10 to
binary files from a microcomputer or other 8-bit system, you must first
type SET
FILE BYTESIZE 8. Otherwise, the 8th bit of each byte will be lost and
the file
will be useless when sent back to the system of origin.
0If you have SET PARITY, then 8th-bit prefixing will be requested. If
the other
side cannot do this, binary files cannot be transferred correctly.
In all
cases, Kermit-10 will request the other Kermit to compress repeated
if the other side can do this (not all Kermits know how) there
may be a
significant improvement in transmission speed.
0If an incoming file does not arrive in its entirety, Kermit-10 will
