    the concept is pretty simple... gather the PATH and SEEN-BYs of each
    message and build a sorted database of them...

    What do you do with the seenby's?

    maybe they aren't needed? i wrote my previous responses without looking at the actual code... if you don't need then for your version, don't gather them ;)

    This report covers 137 unique pathlines in area FN_SYSOP
    as seen from 3634/12.

    You have to really study this, to make any sense of it in the current fidoweb'd fidonet! ;)

    yes, maybe a tree format is not the best format for the display any more? perhaps something more like the TradeWars 2000 universe map would be better?

    Systems are mentioned in many different places in the tree...

    yes, that's how we used to detect dupe loops and get them undone...

    How old is this? 123/500 used to be Ross Cassell -- is he still around?

    i generated that output specifically for that post... if there are addresses listed that do not exist any more, that is because there are still messages from those systems in my message base...

    [time passes]

    so i went and looked and guess what? at least one 123/500 path comes from you! :) i don't know if the dates in the post are correct but they show 2010 Oct 6th
    or 7th... the message is from you to bob ackley where he asked for a W98 key and you sent him one...
