   As a relatively new dandelion user, I''ve been having my share of problems '
with Fugue 6.  Can anyone send any words of wisdom regarding any of the '
 4. A couple of questions about the RS232CHAT facility': first, what''s the '
story on MAKEBINHOOK?  My documentation says it wasn''t "quite ready" as of'
August 1983; hopefully this isn''t still the case.  Since I''m using RS232CHAT'
to talk to VAX/VMS, emulation of a reasonable term would be very nice ...'
I''ve been having problems with the ~Rollmode and ~LocalEcho params on this '
process': "toggling" ~Rollmode doesn''t seem to have any effect; the window '
doesn''t seem to want to scroll (memories of Tek 4014!).  I tried breaking the '
process (#B followed by ↑B) and doing a (DSPSCROLL ''ON \RS232CHATWINDOW)':'
sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn''t!  Meanwhile, switching from '
RS232CHAT to some other TTY process and then back always seems to screw up'
the local echo in the CHAT': typing in "ls" echoes as l[l]s[s] etc.  As with '
~Rollmode, ~LocalEcho hs no effect ...'
