Using EXTRA! for Accessory Manager

EXTRA! for Accessory Manager is a suite of terminal emulators (3270, 5250, and VT) and non-INFOConnect connection tools that let your PC communicate with an IBM mainframe, A/S 400, or DEC host. EXTRA! for Accessory Manager is a stand-alone application that exists in a separate folder.
