applications. All of mxConnect's functions - setting of communications parameters,
a modem, selecting a terminal type, logging onto a host, performing a file transfer, playing
back any pre-recorderd sound and
quitting the application are accessible via the Cambridge Script Processor
Twenty-eight user programmable and selectable command keys
mxConnect's command keys allow user-selected keys, menu items and color icons to be

Command keys can be mapped to any key on the Macintosh
Print redirection, print spooling to any printer
mxConnect allows host directed, page and log printing to any printer utilizing any font type and size.
