    Hello Rick,

    Can anyone point me to a good tutorial for setting this up? I would
    love to use an offline reader for me BBS.. Just having trouble getting started.

    Are you talking about getting golded setup?

    There are advanced.cfg and simple.cfg examples. I suggest you rename simple.cfg
    to golded.cfg and use that as a start. There are lots of examples in the advanced.cfg also that may be usefull to you but start with a simple.cfg.

    Thank you for your reply.. Neither of those two files exist in the download I extracted. I got the latest version or atleast what it claims was the
    latest. I find no .cfg files in the directory.

    Regards,

    Rick

    claims was the latest. I find no .cfg files in the directory.

    There are separate archives for configs and docs. Those two archives may not have been updated for a time so you might have to look around the site for those.

    The source archive contains everything (except executibles) so you could grab that also.

    The GoldED manual refers to a install.txt doc. I cannot find this is any distribution that I have downloaded. Do you know of it? Do you by chance
    have it?

    Regards,

    It is docs/building.txt in the sources. You may grab the sources this way:
    $ cd
    $ git clone https://github.com/golded-plus/golded-plus.git

    Besides using standard makefile procedure you may also use rpmbuild if you have
    rpm-based Linux distribution. You'll need to install ncurses-devel and gcc-c++ (the names may differ in your distribution) and rename golded-plus directory to
    golded+ before running rpmbuild.

    You may also use cmake:
    $ cd golded3
    $ cp -a mygolded.__h mygolded.h
    Edit mygolded.h as you like
    $ cd ..
    $ cmake -H. -Bbuild -DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS=OFF
    $ cmake --build build
    Make a distribution rpm, deb, tgz (optional)
    $ cpack -G RPM --config build/CPackConfig.cmake
    $ cpack -G DEB --config build/CPackConfig.cmake
    $ cpack -G TGZ --config build/CPackConfig.cmake
    or install the built files (optional)
    # cmake --build build --target install

    Good stuff.. :)

    I don't think GoldED can read a mystic configuration to get the area config. You'll have to use area lines in your golded.cfg to get the area config.

    You don't need all the areas in there, just the areas you want to read/write with golded.
