It sounds like you want to run interactive jobs in a batch subsystem (or at
least run them as batch jobs) but still present the user with a screen.

TNAPI allows a batch job run interactive programs, emulating key strokes.
You're right, however,  it does not reduce interactive overhead.

That's why I asked for clarification.

        | Albert,
        |
        | I'd say the goal is to cut the amount of interactive CPW used by
        | interactive
        | jobs.  It looks like your telnet API makes it easier to write
telnet
        | clients, not cut interactive CPW.
