Yeah, but I don't think we ever did a Cray port of it.  We tried to do a
Macintosh version, but that didn't work.

I worked on it from 1984 to 1990 at Microstuf/Crosstalk/DCA, then used it as
a basis for consulting/contracting gigs for about 5 years.  Being a
multi-session comms program with its own windowing system, compiler, etc.,
it's rather more scriptable than Telix ... or anything else I can think of.
