Tapcis on the HP 100LX (100/200LX)

Tapcis on the HP 100LX (100/200LX)

Here are a couple of tips for using TAPCIS on the 100LX:

  1. 1. Diet TAPCIS.EXE. It will go from 250K to about 122K.
  2. 2. The only files you really need for Tapcis to work are TAPCIS.EXE, TAPCIS.HLP and PARAMS.CIS.
  3. 3. Use a small USERID.CIS address book.
  4. 4. If you are logging on through a non-CIS network, like Infonet or Sprint, you will need one or two additional .SCR files, but those are usually small.
All these files should fit in less than 175K once you Diet the .EXE file.

My impressions of Tapcis on the 100LX is that it is extremely easy to setup. A definite minus is the 80 by 25 screen format, although you can Zoom to 64 by 16 when writing messages and in some other instances. A plus for Tapcis is that it's self contained, well integrated and doesn't need external programs. The shareware programs MESSAGE and acCIS require a communications engine like COMMO and an editor like VDE .
