Eclin Connect. (telecommunication software) (evaluation)
by Steve Hudson

The new telecommunications software from Eclin Technologies, Eclin Connect, offers an intuitive point-and-shoot user interface with full mouse support, plus comprehensive online help and an intelligent phone book that keeps usage records for each number. Another usage record tracks calls and downloads (including drive, directory, and filename), and it provides a 32-character comment field. The program can up-or download in the background-and uses only 60K to do it. Script files, which store predetermined command sets and play them back on command, simplify repetitive tasks such as logging off commonly used boards. Other features, such as user-programmable wait-to-connect and wait-to-redial, allow easy customization. There's even a built-in text editor. These features, combined with Eclin Connect's solid documentation and unlimited technical support, make it one to consider.
