YMODEM is a error checking scheme suitable for transfering multiple files used back in the BBS days. Because the protocol enables you to batch a group of files for transmission, many software programs refer to YMODEM as YMODEM BATCH. To provide a multiple file transmission capability, YMODEM uses a header block that carries the filename of each file being transfered, its date of creation, and the file length.
