COMMODE is essentially a REMARK script which prefixes the USER's name to whatever the user types. It is used for chatting with other users, but requires that each TERMINAL be LINKED together.
Setting up COMMODE
Commands within COMMODE
In COMMODE it is easy to have a conversation run over itself - id est people talking over each other. When this happens, you can yield to another user by pressing <ESC>. This will print a GA or Go Ahead. It is also best to end your side of the conversation with a GA or a double <RET>. This will signal to others that you are done speaking.
