Built-in Communications Tools
This chapter describes the built-in communications tools provided in Newton
system software 2.0. The following tools are built into the system:
These communications tools are accessed and used through the Endpoint interface.
This chapter provides an introduction to each tool and the options that you use with
each. For detailed descriptions of the options, see "Built-in Communications Tools
Reference" (page 21-1) in Newton Programmer's Reference.
For basic information on using communications endpoints, see "Endpoint
Interface" (page 23-1).
Three varieties of the serial tool are built into Newton system software:
a standard asynchronous serial tool
a standard asynchronous serial tool with Microcom Networking Protocol (MNP)
a framed asynchronous serial tool
These serial tool varieties are described in the following three subsections.
Standard Asynchronous Serial Tool
You use the standard asynchronous serial communications tool to perform
standard, asynchronous communications, including sending and receiving data.
