Automatic Beta Download Program
ProBeta is a quick-and-simple door to allow users to download one file
from a list of files using a protocol from a list of protocols. It can
be used in conjunction with ProLogon's AUTO_LOGON option to give quick
access to beta or distribution files on phone lines that are otherwise
reserved for subscribers.
PROBETA - The 'door script' for this door. Edit this file to refer
to the directory where you install ProBeta.
PROBETA.EXE - The PROBETA main program.
PROBETA.CNF - The configuration file. See sample file for an
explanation of the file format.
PROBETA.PAS - The ProKit source code for the PROBETA door.
Edit PROBETA to refer to the directory where you will be installing
PROBETA. The default is C:\PCB\PROBETA. Extract all PROBETA files
into this directory. Place an edited copy of PROBETA into each PCBOARD
node directory. Add the following line to your c:\pcb\main\doors.lst
You may wish to add the following line to your PROXMAIN file:
which will allow BETA commands to be stacked from a prodoor command
line. For example,
BETA 1 1
will download the first beta file using the first protocol.
Added the ability to select multiple files during a download.
Because of this, you can now longer stack the options on a command
line as shown above (I doubt many used probeta that way anyway).
Changed support from USERNET.DAT to the new USERNET.XXX file format.
IN NO EVENT WILL I BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY
LOST PROFITS, LOST SAVINGS OR OTHER INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL
DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF YOUR USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM, OR
FOR ANY CLAIM BY ANY OTHER PARTY.
