Sending Batch File and Logging Binary Data in Real Term
RealTerm is a third party terminal emulator application that allows users to send batch files and log binary messages. The binary logging capabilities are not present in HyperTerminal, a popular third party terminal emulator. HyperTerminal only allows for ASCII logging which means larger files taking up more CPU. It is always recommended to log in binary. RealTerm can be downloaded from http://sourceforge.net/projects/realterm/
