This "specification" is designed to standardize the meaning of ANSI-BBS in the communications world. It is split into three parts. General definitions are contained in this document, specifications for the handling of server to client communications and saved ANSI-BBS files are contained in the Server Communications document, and client to server specicifications are contained in the Client Communications document.
This is not a comprehensive ANSI specification, but a compilation of current common practices.
A termcap prepared for core ANSI-BBS with IBM codepage 437 ACS support can be found here. The terminfo translation of this can be found here. The type in both files is "ansi-bbs.org".
