[] Driftwood, Texas - Texas based Carnation Software has announced that its BestEmulation Lite terminal emulator for Mac is now available in the Mac App Store. BestEmulation Lite allows a Macintosh to be used as a terminal, connected to a host computer with a serial connection or by modem. BestEmulation Lite emulates DEC VT100 and VT220 terminals. Supports ANSI and SCO ANSI color. AppleScript is also supported. Works with Intel Macs and MacBooks. Requires Mac OS X 10.6.6 or later.

Scroll Back:
You can scroll back to the past 40 pages of data. BestEmulation Lite remembers the last 40 pages that appear on your screen, regardless of whether the data has scrolled across the screen or the screen has cleared. Video attributes such as inverse and underline are also saved, including colors. This means that you can use the scroll bar to scroll back to previous screens to look at the data or print a scrolled-back page or copy a selection into the clipboard.

AppleScript Support:
BestEmulation LIte supports AppleScript commands. Many functions can be controlled by a script (such as transferring data to and from the host, sending commands to the host and messages to the Mac user). Scripts compiled as applications can be run from "Run AppleScript" under the Special Menu. For instance, you can write a script to transfer data from the host to a file on your Macintosh and then tell another application to open that file.
