I'm curious to know if the UREP source code that drove that link
ever escaped. I recall it being licensed code at the time, but
from academia vs. a commercial product. I don't know if that also
applied to the bisync serial driver.
You don't want to see the source code. We ran it at Emory, and I
remember that I had to work with it, and after every dive into the
code, I felt like I needed a shower afterwards.
I don't remember the details, only the strong associated emotions. :-(
