Hi Brad,

There used to be a file transfer function that used the green screen: the
S/36 (or was it S/34?) would fill the screen, the PC program would grab the
data and effectively press ENTER to get the next screen.

These days there's ODBC, data queues, socket servers, etc. to communicate,
and with the green-screen tax, I don't think anyone would like something
that increases usage thereof.
