Doh! I thought that there was an easier way to escape the escape
sequence. Too much Unix -- '\+\+\+' :-)
But, still, isn't a string of characters that the modem won't transfer
something that the communications system on a PC should handle?
Anyway, I'm starting to get nostalgic about the old BBS days -- maybe I
should put my old one up again? But, they just haven't the same since I
started using the WWW, and telnet BBSs just don't do it for me.
