SAS Institute has announced the availability of Emulus, its popular 3270 terminal emulation software, for the Linux operating system on Intel-based hardware. Emulus is an X-Windows/Motif application which uses TCP/IP to establish a connection to an IBM mainframe host, emulating a 3270 terminal. Included with Emulus is Helplus, an interactive hypertext help system modeled after Microsoft's WinHelp. Helplus is used to provide on-line Help for Emulus, but can also be used to build Help files for use with other X applications. It accepts the same input as WinHelp (help project files and RTF source), reads either XPM or GIF graphics files, and also supports standard WinHelp features such as secondary windows, pop-up topics, topic annotations, bookmarks, and most WinHelp macros. Price: $99.00 on CD-ROM for Linux.
