Hi Steve - Here is the YAPP format:
Sender                              Receiver
^A<length_byte>filename<00 byte>file_size_in_char<00 byte>optional_ignored
Now here is an idea, borrowed from the baycomm yapp program. I can write
two c programs: one that takes a file and makes it into the sender col  above.
Send that file using procomm raw ascii to upload. Or do a yapp download
command, send the FA and then capture the filename line in a file using
raw ascii, then send ^F^B, capture the reply in a raw ascii file, then
send the ^F^C and ^F^D. This could be automated with an aspect script(maybe).
Then use second C program to reconstruct the file that was downloaded. 
This probably needs to be cleaned up a bit, but maybe it would work.
