From firstname.lastname@example.org Mon Apr 5 16:43:50 EDT 1993 Article: 3266 of comp.infosystems.gopher Path: email@example.com Date: Thu, 1 Apr 93 10:51:24 CST Message-ID: <9304011651.AA07771@boombox.micro.umn.edu> From: firstname.lastname@example.org ("The Gopher Team" ) Original-To: email@example.com Subject: New Mac, DOS, & Windows Gopher client Newsgroups: comp.infosystems.gopher Distribution: comp Sender: firstname.lastname@example.org Approved: email@example.com Lines: 20 The Gopher Team is pleased to announce FATTgopher: a single client for Mac, DOS, and Windows/Winsock. This single binary is distributed using the new MIME/93 multipart resource allocation format. The Macintosh code is contained in the resource component, and tagged DOS or Windows code is resident in the conventional data component (this is ignored by Macs). The single application simplifies maintenance for us as all components share a significant portion of code. This single format also simplifies the life of campus network administrators, since only one application needs to be installed and supported. The applications all share a common user interface using platform specific window types and controls. We are working on X and Motif support in the Type4 component. FATTgopher 1.0 beta is available via Gopher or anonymous FTP from mozart.micro.umn.edu. Remember: this is beta software. Please send bug reports and feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org. - The Gopher Team.
