• Long filenames

    From Janis Kracht@1:261/38 to Gert Andersen on Thu Sep 28 11:39:40 2006
    Gert,

    We cannot process long filenames in fidonet. There are few systems that can do
    that, so you must store the file in a zip archive like this:

    zip -jm0 filename.zip somelongfilename.tgz

    Don't use compression since tgz files are already compressed.

    I'll take care of the ones that didn't make it out here with bad tics, but for anything new, this is what you must do.

    Take care,
    Janis

    The long filenames and the .tar.tgz files was just an new try of distribution I
    will next time wend out file like gps61015.zip and gpl61015.zip other aftnged files of linux binaries ad sources for golded will be sating on my system.
    gpl and gps files cems when i have cvs to sourceforge.net golded-plus for new updates and have compiled it and tried out and find it working for betas and then run destibute for it.


    Take care,
    Gert
