MacWise allows a Macintosh to be used as a terminal – connected
to a host computer directly, by modem, local area network or over
the Internet with telnet or ssh secure shell. The
emulators support video attributes such as dim, reverse, underline,
132-column modes, protected fields and graphic characters sent
the host computer, as well as enhanced Viewpoint mode. Features
include phone list and dialer for modems, on-screen programmable
function keys, connection scripts and more. Works with desktop Macs and MacBooks.

You can scroll back to the past 40
pages of data. MacWise 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
MacWise supports AppleScript
commands. Many functions of MacWise can be controlled
by a script (such as transferring data to and from the host,
sending commands to the host and messages to the MacWise
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.
