Well, as long as there's manuals for it, somewhere, I usually can figure it out... Thanks.

AMOS itself includes no instructions to convert anything bigger than bytes into string variables. (If it's bigger, chr$ returns an error, if I remember right.) Which is probably why this package used some unknown extension to do it. Unfortunately, nowere it says which one it is - not in the readme, nor on the alt.religion.amos newsgroup where it was first concieved and published, nor anywhere else on the net I could get at within the last fifteen hours. (Figuring out what exactly these instructions are supposed to be doing took quite some time.) None of the extensions I could find on aminet seems to offer anything like that. (though I might have missed some if it wasn't obviously named - been at it for the last couple of days straight, deep hack mode...)

If all else fails, I could probably make up some crazy procedure with binary operations and chr$, since speed is not an issue when forming library calls to open sockets, however, finding that extension would be a better solution.
