DoorPch - Version 3.5
Change History Document

DoorPch Version 3.2
===================

The format of lines 24 and 25 have been completely changed to
coincide with those provided by PCBoard. All the functionality
you had in 3.1 is still available in 3.2.

Removed logic that checked for a scheduled event from the
keyboard input loop. The CALLERS time remaining is now shortened
if an event would occur while in the DOOR. The code will reduce
the time remaining to allow PCBoard to honor the buffer time
specified in PCBOARD.DAT.

A bug existed in DoorPch 3.1 which would allow a CALLER's time to
expire while in SysOp CHAT mode in the DOOR. This error has been
corrected in version 3.2.

This version of DoorPch is NOT compatible with PCBOARD 12.1 or
below. It has been specifically written to process PCBoard 14.0
system files. The Salt Air staff has stated that it is their
intention to "freeze" the record layouts of their files with the
14.0 release therefore it is assumed DoorPch 3.2 will work on
subsequent versions of PCBoard. Of course, should an enhancement
to PCBoard require a recompilation of DoorPch, we will provide a
subsequent release.


DoorPch Version 3.3
===================

A bug was fixed that inaccurately computed the time a caller had
left in door processing. The caller was receiving a message that
their time had expired. This only effected callers that had been
given a very large amount of time for the "time remaining"
calculation.

An additional variable has been added (LOCALUSR%) which allows
the Door program to determine if it is running in LOCAL mode.


DoorPch Version 3.4
===================

A bug was fixed in the scrolling routines that prevented DoorPch
programs from running correctly on IBM PC's that had the original
ROM BIOS chips.

Two new variables are now available for user access. The first
variable, BAUDOPEN$, provides the baud rate at which the BBS
"opened" the Com port. The second variable, BAUDCONN$, provides
the baud rate at which a connection was successfully made to the
BBS system.

DoorPch - Version 3.5
Change History Document

The READ.TXT subroutine has been changed. Prior to Version 3.4,
the file name passed as a parameter was expected to reside in the
current drive and directory. In this release, you may now pass
the full drive, path, and file name as a parameter.
Example: CALL READ.TXT ("C:\doors\junk.txt")


DoorPch Version 3.5
===================

Unfortunately, right after DoorPch Version 3.4 was released, the
authors were notified of two problems that needed to be correct-
ed. One of problems was introduced in Version 3.4 and the second
problem had existed in the code since the release of PcBoard
14.0.

The first problem dealt with the READ.TXT subroutine. The
subroutine was printing an extra line of text after the user had
requested to end the display.

The second problem dealt with the way a user was given credit for
any time spent uploading a file or time they were in "Chat" mode
with another user or the Sysop. This error has caused some door
programs to report the user's time limit had expired when in
reality they still had several minutes left for further
processing.
