Kermit

Kermit is a software file transfer and management protocol and set of communications tools, it provides a consistent approach to file transfer[?], terminal emulation[?], script programming, and character-set conversion across many different hardware and OS platforms.

Developed at Columbia University in 1981 to allow students to use removable media[?] to hold mainframe files and use remote terminals with the DEC-20[?] machines. This developed into having the same software package on every computer, all based on the DEC-20 Kermit. MS-DOS Kermit was developed in the same year.


Kermit is also the first name of the muppet Kermit the Frog.
