• Aborting long ansis when using @BAUD@ at-code

    From nolageek@VERT/CAPSHRIL to Digital Man on Wed Jun 15 00:00:41 2022
    When using the BAUD at-code, I've noticed that it's impossible to abort the ansi - is there a way to enable this?

    The BAUD at-code is sending a special escape sequence to SyncTERM (or compatible terminal program) to emulate a modem rate via display speed. This doesn't slow down how fast the text (and/or ANSI) file is sent to the client. So it's still sent to the client super fast (usually) and it's just that the client (SyncTERM) is *displaying* the data slowly.

    An alternative approach is to have the file sent slowly by the BBS and that can't be achieved using the -delay option to the ans2asc utility when converting an ANSI to a Ctrl-A file.
