Here it is. This must be a record for me on getting out a summary.

Original Question:

Check out C-kermit 5a(188) available from Version 5a(189)
is in final test. (as good as zmodem?)

zmodem can be found at in comp.sources.unix/volume12 in unix/zmodem or unix/goldies
xmodem can be found at in pub/usenet/comp.sources.unix/volume23/xmodem3.9 in usenet/comp.sources.unix/volume23/xmodem3.9 in pd6:<unix-c.xyzmodem> xmodem3.10

other packages:
  rzsz and xyzmodem available from
  JetCom from Cactus International 1-800-525-UNIX cost $295 supports X-Y-Z
 By setting the packet sizes for kermit and such you can get up to
 about 90% of Zmodems speeds

 In .kermrc (But how does this help procomm users)
   set rec pac 1000
   set send pac 1000
