RIPlink provides RIPscrip support in two ways. One is an internal
support with various procedures that will translate the given
parameters to RIPscrip commands and send them to the remote side
as well as interpret them locally.
The other option is to have RIPlink read in an external .RIP file.
It will then parse and display the RIP screen locally and will
optionally send the commands to the remote side. Because RIPlink
is still under development, it does not fully support all of the
commands that make up RIPscrip. It only has limited interactive
ability for the Sysop. It will display the graphics and do the
mouse support, but it does not do things such as protocol support,
etc. Those things may be added in a future release.
RIPlink is an Object Oriented toolkit. Although not everyone is
familiar with OOP programming, we feel that the provided examples
should be enough to fully use RIPlink. If you have difficulty,
support is available from the locations listed above
(Section: Distribution and Support.)
The RIPscrip commands that require that the remote terminal return
a value must be handled with care. RIPlink will only send the codes.
It will NOT wait for the returned information; this is left up to the

it is highly suggested that you obtain and read the RIPscrip
As of this release, the latest version is 1.54.00.
RIPlink has no internal comm routine support. Instead, RIPlink must
be given information about your existing comm routines whether they
are a 3rd party toolkit, or your own routines. This section will
explain how to set up RIPlink and your comm routines so that they
will talk to each other. If you are in the market for a reliable set
of comm routines, we suggest that you use Turbo Power Software's
Async Professional. Be aware however, they are not inexpensive.
If you decide to buy Async Professional or you already have
it, contact us for a unit that will interface RIPlink and Async
The unit is FREE to all registered RIPlink users.
