Abstract: PARLEZ is an inter-terminal and inter-account communication
package.  It has three main sections, Talk, Mail, and
. The Talk section is an enhanced and expanded version of
  the standard TALK program.  PARLEZ allows users to send
  messages only to other users who are running either PARLEZ or
  TALK at the time the message is sent.  This prevents messages
  from being sent and interupting users involved in other
  programs.  Messages can be sent either to a specific keyboard
  or to anyone running the program.  They can also be addressed
  to a specific group of users running the program.
. The Mail section allows the user to send letters to
  'mail box' files in other user's accounts for later
  retrieval.  The letters can be sent to one person or everyone
  at the same time.  PARLEZ supports three 'mail box' files
  per account.  Letters can also be posted on a common
  'bulletin board'.
. The Transfer section allows the user to exchange programs
  with other users.  It does this by lowering the protection
  code on the donor's program and by copying the program to the
  recipient's protection when the user exits.
PARLEZ also supports data files that contain the usernames of
people that use the program and a list of all accounts that
have used the program.  Auxiliary commands include fast
logout and a chain to a system 'game file'.  A detailed help
section is built into PARLEZ and a help file is also
Notes: Program uses FIP codes.
