ARCHI: to archivee messages. I needed an efficient way to archive all messages appearing in an echomail area. My idea was this: use a "ghost" point, and forward to it all messages (like it was a normal point), but define a packer to produce plain ASCII files instead of regular ArcMail ones. To install Archi, you have to: a) Choose a free point number (if you're a point, contact your boss to have a second number) b) Link this new ghost point to the area you want to archive c) Define, for that point, the packer ARCHI, whose syntax is: ARCHI.EXE filename.log arcmail.file packet.file Where filename.log is the name of your archive file (usually, this name goes into the "Command options" field of your setup), and arcmail.file and packet.file are usually added by your mail processor. An example with Wmail: BBSInfo ;Node Paccker Options 334/306.7 Lharc.Exe a -m ; the point above is a regular point ; the point below is our archiver 334/306.2000 Archie.Exe philosop.hi d) Place Archi.Exe togheter with your other packers e) If you want, send me a post card, and/or a recipe of your country (money will not be refused, but is unnecessary) If you find bugs, or similar bad things, please notice me.
