Summary: A utility for transferring files using the Kermit protocol.
G-Kermit is a UNIX program for transferring files using the Kermit
protocol. Kermit is a file transfer protocol for transferring text and
binary files without errors between diverse types of computers and
over potentially hostile communication links.

G-Kermit features include: support for text and binary file transfer on
both 7-bit and 8-bit connections; files can be transferred singly or
in groups; automatic startup configuration via the GKERMIT environment
variable; and configurability as an external protocol.

Kermit protocol features include: automatic peer recognition,
streaming on reliable connections; selectable packet length from 40 to
9000 bytes (4000 is the default); single shifts for 8-bit data on
7-bit connections; control-character prefixing for control-character
transparency; control-character unprefixing for increased speed
(incoming only); compression of repeated bytes; and per-file and batch

G-Kermit does not support the following features: making connections:
character-set translation; interactive commands and scripting; and
file date-time stamps.
