if you’re the one taking care of hamp_util: to SJONES

Subj:    Some hints about the SYMBOLS.COM

I like the symbols.com in the hamp_util: dir . . .  buuuut…..

maybe, for clarity……
1) rename the symbol for lzcomp.exe to COMPRESS, so that it complies
with the UNIX compress

2) rename the symbol for lzdcmp.exe to UNCOMPRESS (or UNCOMP*RESS)
so that it complies with the Unix uncompress

Also, if you like (if you’re the one taking care of hamp_util: that is,
) I have ARC.EXE for VMS, as well as MOST, a scrollable text viewer
that allows you to jump from it to an editor (EDT, TPU, EMACS, or whatever),
and also has an incredible search function.  The best equivilant that I
can think of is LIST for the IBM (which is, of course, the -best- text
lister for PC’s ;D )

Thanks in Advance – and tell me what you think.

–Ken
