As and when I feel like moving to PPC from my collection of 68K Macs, I'll
probably do this.

On the other hand, THINK C went off the rails when Symantec tried to
bulldoze the Zortech C++ compiler into it. I still use the Kahl Object-C
compiler (with 7.0 of the project manager, I think, for GNU Emacs
interfacing) and it works fine.

I communicated over TCP networks with a similar object to the TELNET
object.  I've used the UDPSend and UDPReceive objects (less reliable than
telnet because packets are not guaranteed to get to their destination, more
similar to http protocol).  I've had great success with them, we even wrote
unix code to speak back and forth to the UDP objects.

The only problems I've had were related to TCP initialization and shut-down.

There was also some mention on this list about an 3.5 object that supports
max-speak across the internet.  This next part was taken from the 3.5 info
sheet David Z. put out in December.

I would love to hear from someone who's used the wc client, I haven't
upgraded yet.
