That's what I thought as well. But who did it and is the PRG available?

No, we only had a C=, drive and modem in mind.

Now some personal ideas.
1) I don't mind to program a browser myself. What I had in mind any way was
to start with a text orientated one: no graphix etc. The reason is simple:
in this way you van use a CBM as well (80 columns !!!).
2) some C= have their own RS232 interface or none. The ones which have
differ: C64 = software, Plus4 = 6551 etc. The C64 cannot handle high speeds.
For this reason I always attached a 8250 to it. Worked mighty fine!
3) the only thing I haven't any knowledge about is how to contact the net at

But before starting to write a program, what programs (preferable with
source) are available at all?

Groetjes, Ruud
