File transfer improvements:


File transfer recovery is the major new feature of C-Kermit 5A(190), and is also available in the UNIX and other C-Kermit versions as well as in MS-DOS Kermit 3.14 and in the new release of IBM Mainframe Kermit. Should a binary-mode transfer terminate prematurely, for example because the phone or network connection was lost, you can pick it up where it left off without having to retransmit the data that was sent so far.
