Terminate (terminat.exe) was a shareware modem terminal and host program for MS-DOS and compatible operating systems developed from the early to the late 1990s by the Dane Bo Bendtsen. The last release (5.00) was made in 1997; no details are still available for the first, but the T-Cfg program which performed config upgrades from 1.0 to 1.1 is dated 1994, so it seems reasonable to assume 1.0 was not that much earlier.
Compared to similar programs of its time, Terminate had a large number of built-in features like: a powerful phone book with long distance calling cost calculation, Fido Mailer, QWK offline mail reader, file manager, text editor, keyboard mapping, ISDN support , fax and voice-call features, chat, IEMSI, VGA mode detection, audio CD player, and a REXX-like scripting language.
Supported terminal emulation modes included ASCII, Avatar, ANSI, RIP, VT102, and others. A number of file transfer protocols like Zmodem were built into the application, along with support for external protocols like HSLink and BiModem.
The installation program could import the phone book and settings from other applications like: Telix, RemoteAccess, Frontdoor, BinkleyTerm, Portal of Power, as well as (indirectly) Minicom and Commo.
