3.6 The Go Modem Protocol and Go Text Protocol

The Go Modem Protocol (GMP) was developed by Bruce Wilcox with input from David Fotland, Anders Kierulf and others, according to the history in http://www.britgo.org/tech/gmp.html.

Any Go program should support this protocol since it is a standard. Since CGoban supports this protocol, the user interface for any Go program can be done entirely through CGoban. The programmer can concentrate on the real issues without worrying about drawing stones, resizing the board and other distracting issues.

GNU Go 3.0 introduced a new protocol, the Go Text Protocol (see section 20. The Go Text Protocol) which we hope can serve the functions currently used by the GMP.
