Rterm.exe will run from a command line such as an MS-DOS or Commands  
Window running the standard shells, command.com (9x) and cmd.exe (NT),         
as well as the ports of bash and tcsh that we use.  Its primary                
purpose is to allow batch operation, but it does provide all the               
facilities needed for interactive use, including simple command-line           
Batch use: At its simplest, Rterm.exe can be used in a batch mode by           
commands like                                                                  
Rterm.exe --vsize=10M --nsize=400k --no-restore --no-save < infile > outfile 
although users will probably want to set up simple .bat or .cmd files          
to run batch jobs.
