SBMac is a terminal emulation and data transfer program allowing a
Macintosh to be used as a terminal (connected to a host computer directly,
by modem, or over the Internet.) emulating Viewpoint, Wyse 50,
VT101 or Prism. The emulators support video attributes such
as dim, reverse, underline, 132-column codes, and graphic characters
sent from the host computer, as well as enhanced Viewpoint mode.
SBMac™ version 4 can scroll back to the past 20 pages of data. It remembers the last 20 pages that appear on your screen, regardless of whether the data has scrolled across the screen or the screen has cleared. Video attributes such as inverse and underline are also saved including colors.
Data transferred from the host computer can be used in Mac spreadsheets, databases, word processors, page layout and other programs. Other features include phone list and dialer for Hayes-compatible modems, on-screen programmable function keys, Mac-to-host as well as host-to-Mac data transfer capability, 32-bit clean, Apple events support, and more.
The data transfer capabilities are designed to work with relational databases on hosts running PICK, UNIX, Prime, Ultimate, uniVerse, UniData, etc.
Data transfers can be remotely controlled from PICK BASIC. Client Server commands are supported to allow host programming that lets a user simply select from a host menu item to start a data transfer.
SBMac has all of the connection, data transfer and emulation features of MacToPic Plus:
Host menu items can be selected with a simple click of the mouse on screen (no special host programming required). SBMac has page forward/back capability, as well as the ability to display 24-bit color pictures and QuickTime movies under host control. Pictures and movies can be stored on a File server. (Pictures must be in Macintosh PICT format and movies must be Macintosh QuickTime format).
