Thanks for the response!
I considdered that, but it's not quite a utility. Tools like diff or sed
or awk, those are utilities, but a 3270 emulator... I couldn't quite make
myself categorize it as such. Ask yourself, would 'telnet' be
considdered a utility (because it's basically a telnet client)? If so,
then you could considder x3270 a utility too. If not, then what?
If nothing else pops up, then Util it well be.
