ATP allows you to read and compose mail packets of the QWK format,
commonly used on PC-based BBS systems.  With this program, you can
download all of your new e-mail and board messages as a QWK packet,
read them offline, compose replies to selected messages off-line,
then upload all of your replies as one QWK reply packet the next
time you call the BBS.
Each user who wishes to use ATP must do the following:
1.  set environment variable ATP to the location where s/he
wishes configuration files located (e.g. ${HOME}/.qwk')
2.  create the directory named above
3.  copy the files in /usr/local/share/atp into it
4.  edit the atprc and taglines.atp file to contain whatever
data you want.
5.  If you want atp to look good in xterms, you should get and install the
VGA font, available in the port "emulators/pcemu".  Then run ATP like
this: "xterm -fn vga -e atp".  Be sure to set "ansi = on", "color = on",
"charset = msdos", and "graphics = off" in your atprc file!  (You can
use atp in an xterm even without doing these steps, but you won't get
the pretty PC ANSI-style graphics characters!)
see the atp(1) man page for more details.

The atp port currently does not have a maintainer. As a result, it is
