To send alphanumeric pages to a pager, if an email gateway is unavailable
or undesirable, software is needed to control a modem which will dial a
Paging Central, and deliver the pages using an ASCII delivery system known
as TAP. Sendpage implements all aspects of this type of software,
including an SNPP client, an SNPP server, a queuing engine, a modem
control engine, a TAP communication system, and an email notification system.
This package provides the Perl modules used to process SNPP and TAP pages.
