Note that some features of BananaCom are intentionally undocumented. This has mostly to do with VT100 stuff which is well documented in other places AND, I think, the use of which should be discouraged.

Around 1997 or 1998 or so I made it into a freeware version (4.0) and it was used for years after that. But I think it has probably been at least ten years since I've heard a peep about it.
I went to Cyber.Xpo.95 and won "Best DOS Product" and "Best of Show". I have plaques around here somewhere.

I once referred to it as a sort of "google for the bbs: the cleanest, simplest possible interface to get the job done" --- possibly a spec of truth to that?
