;;; Commentary:

;; This mode is intended to be used for telnet or rsh to a remote host;
;; `telnet' and `rsh' are the two entry points.  Multiple telnet or rsh
;; sessions are supported.
;; Normally, input is sent to the remote telnet/rsh line-by-line, as you
;; type RET or LFD.  C-c C-c sends a C-c to the remote immediately; 
;; C-c C-z sends C-z immediately.  C-c C-q followed by any character
;; sends that character immediately.
;; All RET characters are filtered out of the output coming back from the
;; remote system.  The mode tries to do other useful translations based
;; on what it sees coming back from the other system before the password
;; query.  It knows about UNIX, ITS, TOPS-20 and Explorer systems.
;; You can use the global telnet-host-properties to associate a telnet
;; program and login name with each host you regularly telnet to.

;;; Code:

;; to do fix software types for lispm:
;; to eval current expression.  Also to try to send escape keys correctly.
;; essentially we'll want the rubout-handler off.

;; filter is simplistic but should be okay for typical shell usage.
;; needs hacking if it is going to deal with asynchronous output in a sane
;; manner
