    about: "Binary Conference List (BCL) files":

    I came across this feature of FMail. And I was wondering, does anyone know if there's other AreaFix/Tosser software that supports BCL
    files, as specified in http://ftsc.org/docs/fsc-0057.003 chapter "8
    e) Automatic Requests for Conferences" ?

    I did some investigation...

    Software that doesn't support BCL files:

    SqaFix (os2)

    I found 1 other tosser that does:


    I have never heard of it before, and I doubt anyone is still using it...

    And I found a util for BCL files on:


    NA2BCL .RAR 30K 09-25-05 NA2BCL - Echolist in NA format to BCL format
    converter. It is useful for FMAIL users -
    read readme.txt.

    It's by a Russian sysop who has left fidonet. The documentation is in Russian, but Google translate does a reasonable job on it.

    It only converts simple area lists, without area descriptions, so it's usefullness is limited...

    Bye, Wilfred.
