What do you mean by sending?  The data ist lost while transferring
from the modem to the computer.

The Taylor UUCP docs say "hardflow" can only appear in "port".  Also
there is no "devices" file when using Taylor-style config files.

The docs also say "hardflow yes" is the default.

Has NetBSD's Taylor UUCP been modified in any way?  Perhaps I should
just go and compile a stock Taylor UUCP...

BTW, why aren't GNU `info' and all the docs in texinfo format part of
NetBSD?  (I've checked NetBSD-1.1-RELEASE/sun3 and atari.)
