Hi Bill:

BDT uses UOJ for connection which does not support environmental variables.
You would have to shell out to get them and convert the files manually.  I
looked in the manuals and did not find an alternative.

BDT does not have a keep alive.  The default for a UOJ session is an hour.
 If you do not do anything in that hour you have to reconnect again.  BDT's
advance settings do not allow you to change the default even though UOJ
supports changing this parameter.
