• HTick & files.bbs

    From Black Panther@CRBBSNET to Netsurge on Sat Aug 3 13:42:06 2019
    Hi Frank,

    Question about htick and files.bbs. When I get a file in, htick will create
    the files.bbs file. Mystic then is able to import the files from the
    files.bbs.

    The problem I'm having, is htick is putting the entire description onto one line in the files.bbs, so Mystic is only importing the first few words.

    Is there a way to get htick to put the description onto multiple lines? Or should I just run 'fold' on the files.bbs before their processed?

    You need to do a few things to get discriptions working properly.
    First, your husky config should contain the following:

    fileDescName file_id.diz
    fileDescName FILE_ID.DIZ
    fileLDescString ">"
    FileDescPos 14

    You also need to make your your mutil conf file has the folowing in it:

    desc_first = 0
    desc_char = >
    desc_start = 14

    system as this is all I got as a reply, lol.

    That was strange. I have the message that was sent here...

    I made the changes, and needed to wait until I had files come in. It's
    looking like it's working. :)

    That was strange, all I got was exactly what I quoted.

    Glad I could use my husky-fu skills to help. Anything other questions
    or issues don't hesitate to ask.

    The file descriptions are looking good now. Thank you.

    I am still fighting with getting the filter.pl file to change the name on incoming netmail though.

    In my config, I have:

    HptPerlFile /home/dan/husky/bin/filter.pl

    The filter.pl file has:

    sub filter
    {
    if($area eq "NETMAIL" && $toaddr eq "1:317/3" && $toname eq "Sysop")
    {
    $toname = "Dan Richter";
    $change = 1;
    return "";
    }
    }

    According to everything I've read, this should execute every time there are messages to be tossed.

    I've even tried getting RNTrack set up, but it's giving me "Aborted (core dumped)" when trying to read the JAM message base. Evidently it will read
    .pkt files, but it can only delete message, and not change them...

    I'm at a lose...

    $change = 1;
    return "";
    }
    }

    The $area eq statement would only apply to echo's, not netmail. Try
    this intead:

    sub filter
    {
    if($toaddr eq "1:317/3" && $toname eq "Sysop")
    {
    $toname = "Dan Richter";
    $change = 1;
    return "";
    }
    }

    The $toaddr routine only applies to netmail. That should take anything addressed to Sysop and change it to Dan Richter.

    If I remember correctly, Mystic already catches Sysop in new mail
    scanning and assigs it to you. I may be wrong here, but I don't rewrite
    Sysop to Frank Linhares and I still get and read anything addressed to
    Sysop at any of my AKAs.

    RNTrack's support for JAM is very buggy and unusable. If you do want to
    use it, you must use CarbonCopy in HPT to create a copy of all netmail
    coming in into a *.MSG area and have RNTrack use that message area to
    take care of it's business.

    I'll give that a shot. Thank you.

    It does if using mutil to toss the incoming messages. There is a area in the mutil.ini file that you can list "Forward Sysop:Dan Richter", and it would forward them...

    Ahhh. That was something I was wondering, as it looked like it was trying to read the JAM base as Squish... I'll see if your fix for filter.pl takes care
    of it... ;)

    Thanks again.
