Announcing CUHelper

I wrote a simple piece of software recently called CUHelper. It's
available from the following url:

http://geowww.geo.tcu.edu/chris/cuhelper/default.shtml

CUHelper solves a problem with Macintosh Cornell CU-SeeMe, that is, it
doesn't support communication with a web browser. There are pages such as
the Web Reflector Scanner
(http://ccwf.cc.utexas.edu/cgi-bin/nph-cgiwrap/streak/scan) that let you
click on a link and have CU-SeeMe automatically connect to a reflector.

But Cornell CU-SeeMe doesn't support this capability, that is... until now.
CUHelper bridges that gap. It takes the apple event from Netscape or IE,
and sends a modified apple event to CU-SeeMe that it DOES understand.

If you have any comments on CUHelper, be sure to let me know. It's free
(of course!) ;-)
