Attached is a binhexed CompactPro archive of some helpful keyboard
macros I created for use with ClarisWorks 2.0's VT102 communications
emulation. Here's a little background from the READ ME file I've
>They were especially designed for use in conjunction with Digital's

Hope these are helpful to anyone using ClarisWorks for communications.
