    Hello Janis!

    Some of the hatch to file echo AFTNGED of Golded+ files can have some errors while they have been zip packed as it is done by a specially script fiel sfor sourceforge.net, but as I knoe have my sywtem packing the files and have a file_id.diz in it there should give the tic files the decription of the files.

    Take care,

    I have self done some checking and find out why the aftnged files of gpl*.zip files not woudl work with the file_id.diz in it after the dist-gpl.sh file was running to pack the files.
    Then I foud out that linux and maybe other OS too not like to work by reading a
    file_id.diz misk up letters of uppercase and lovercase at File_ID.DIZ.
    The script files for it to packing and make file_id.diz is made by golded+ developers.

    I have tried to then to do some new script running after changing some command in it to make file_id.diz in lovercase letters to see if it now was better and then distributed new file and used replace function for the first files.

    Then made some new other files to be sed out as golded+ source code packs


    Take care,

    I don't know if my "complaint" fits into the same category as Gert's but
    the long filenames are raising havoc on this MS-DOS 8.3 system.

    Hi Gerald,

    NO one should be sending out files that are not 8X3 standard DOS filenames. I'll contact Gert about this, don't worry. Any files which do not fit should be stored in a zip envelope.

    Take care,
    Janis

    You'd be surprised :) It's not really the systems, it's the software.. we have
    to accomodate the least common denominator or we lose people's ability to get the files.

    No problem :)

    I don't know if my "complaint" fits into the same category as
    Gert's but the long filenames are raising havoc on this MS-DOS 8.3
    system.

    there is/was some method of providing an 8.3 name in addition to the LFNs but i
    don't know or remember what it was... i know that FrontDoor mailer implemented something so that LFNs wouldn't cause problems on 8.3 systems...

    whatever the reason, something definitely needs to be done...

    nope... while all of my systems can handle LFNs, my fido and related processing

    You're just getting around to last year's messages now? Where have you
    been? On the Dark Side of the Moon? :-))

    I guess I have to quote the original phrase and hope you can develop a
    better understanding of what the original discussion was about...

    "NO one should be sending out files that are not 8X3 standard DOS
    filenames."

    Please explain how one can use winzip with standard DOS systems.

    Moot point in any event. The problems have been resolved.

    it was something about dos

    "NO one should be sending out files that are not 8X3 standard DOS filenames."

    i agree on that

    Please explain how one can use winzip with standard DOS systems.

    put a floppy disk into a dell laptop and open it from windows, pretty much anyone can do this, if it was not for dell that have removed floppy drives for secureity reasons :-)

    Moot point in any event. The problems have been resolved.

    yes winzip still works in dos i belive ?

    You're missing the point. The processing of hatched files is done in an automated process by programs developed specifically for that purpose. If
    you are requiring a sysop to intervene and MANUALLY process the files with winzip or sprinkle Holy Water on the files, then there is not much point in hatching files. The "standard" for hatched files is 8x3 and nothing else
    is acceptable.

    Moot point in any event. The problems have been resolved.
    yes winzip still works in dos i belive ?

    That _may_ be true, BUT, it will not work unattended and in an automated
    mode!
