Load Processor Configuration Utility

GLOBAL-Tech Software


This thing is "kind of" a pain to set up but, once it is done. It is
done! Unless you get a new type of archive format, there is a major
archive version change, or you really want to change the switches that the
compression program uses. You never have to see the RIPITCFG.EXE again!
I PROMISE! the registered version will be easier to manage. I hate
typing all those lines in for every format myself.

RIPITCFG.EXE is the heart of the RIP IT UP!-Load Processor. Once the
config file is written, the processor will look here for direction.
The file RIPITUP.DAT contains all the information for your path setup.
DO NOT ERASE this file. PLEASE! test all formats and switches before
going on line.

Opening Screen:

[1] Primary Configuration. <-Sets SYSOP wants and needs
[2] Custom Configuration. <-Sets MAIL and Registration Info.
[3] Archive Configuration. <-Sets archive format information
[S] Save setup info.
[Q] Quit Rip-It Config.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Primary Setup:

[1] Bad Files will be MOVED/DELETED after failure of any test.

(Hitting the 1 will toggle Move or Delete)

[2] Files before Jan 1970 will be: MOVED/DELETED

(Hitting 2 will let you set how new of files you want. Use
numbers for input. Or, Zero out the entries out for no DATE
testing. Only EXE's and COM files are tested within a archive!
So, if a archive is ALL text or something it will pass. This
was done for speed, it takes a while to check a couple hundred
files for dates. Plus 95% of the files out there have an EXE
or COM inside. As long as 1 EXE or COM file is greater than
your date set above, it is programmed to allow the file to go
to the next check. Files with extent you have not set like
.DLL's for example will be tested on a individual bases, and of
course re-compressed if they pass. Being you have that option
in the config set.)

[3] The "Files Before" date WILL/WILL NOT be incremented monthly.

(This feature will increment the Date Check every month. For instance
if you had this feature turned on now. Next month it would say in #2
"Files before Feb 1970". This was done so if you set a 6 month date
period it will stay a 6 month period, without going to the config
every month to change it.)

[4] Files uploaded will NOT be converted to another archive format.

(Hitting 4 will allow you to pick a file to convert to. Note: If you
choose to do this, fully define this archive format. Everything that
comes to your BBS is getting changed to this format. Except those
files extensions in BYPASS.TXT or -AV type ZIP files!)

You can only do this after defining at least 1 archive format.


[5] No files will be added to Re-compressed archives.

(Some people don't believe in this but, here it is. Put a filename
here and it will be added to every archive that comes in as long as you
are RE-COMPRESSING. This file should be located with RIPITUP.EXE)

[6] This command line will test all files with .GIF extensions for integrity.
ex. - C:\PATH\GIFTEST.EXE %1%2

(Be sure to keep %1%2 together, %1 is the filename that GIFTEST
will be passed and %2 is the extension if you put a space in
between it would be like trying to pass GIFTEST 2 commands. This
is one of the only decent GIF testers I could find SHAREWARE.
If anyone has a better one I would appreciate a pointer. But,
it works fine and returns a DOS ERROR LEVEL so.... Also if you
like you can add the switches you desire in between the .EXE and
the %1%2. All the commands work in this manner)

[7] This command line will be used to test the TEMP directory for Viruses.

(SCAN works good for me, but everyone has their favorites. The example
in the config is the exact one I use on my BBS)

[8] This PATH is where you wish moved files to be stored.
ex. - C:\SLBBS\RIPITUP\JUNK

(Self explanatory. If the file is moved, this is where it ends up! If
nothing if defined here a \JUNK directory will be created on error,
below wherever you are storing the RIPITUP executable. Look here for
ERRORS.LOG. Of course you will be notified via SLMAIL if you have
the MAIL feature turned on. See below.)

[9] This PATH is where temporary files are to written/deleted from.
ex. - C:\TEMP

(This is the directory where ALL NODES will start their temp directories.
So if a user is on node 3. A directory called NODE3 will be made below
whatever you define here. Example C:\TEMP\NODE3 All files processing
will be done in this directory or below and cleaned up afterward.

PLEASE PUT SOMETHING IN THE ABOVE!!!!!!

Custom Configuration:

[1] RIP IT UP!-Load Processor - Registration Name: #BETA Not Used
[2] RIP IT UP!-Load Processor - Registration Number: #BETA Not Used
[3] Full Path to SLMAIL.EXE:

When prompted enter FULL Path

ex. - C:\SLBBS - Leave both fields blank for NO mail.

Receiving the RIPITUP News: - Enter the persons name you want to
get the ERRORS mail. Most systems
will probably be SYSOP. The person
named here will ONLY BE MAILED ON
ERROR.LOG CREATION. If there is an
error.log already there nothing will
happen. (No reason for mail overkill)
Must have a MAIL subboard. Everyone
should, but ya never know.
[Q] Quit Back to MAIN

ARCHIVE Configuration:

³ Note: Don't go crazy trying to figure out what %1, %2, %3 ³
³ is for. Just follow the examples below. Once you have a ³
³ good understanding of how the processor uses these %variables ³
³ you will be able to customize the processor to your needs. ³
³ For example: The GIFTest ³
³ You get a new gif tester in and you want to use it for ³
³ testing new GIF uploads. The executable is called NGT.EXE ³
³ (New Gif Tester) and it only excepts filenames, NO extension. ³
³ The old way of testing with GIFTEST was GIFTEST %1%2. This ³
³ means when the processor sees a .GIF in the directory being ³
³ processed it would pass the filename and extension to GIFTEST ³
³ %1 being the filename and %2 being the extension. Now the ³
³ new NGT only excepts filenames. In the configuration you ³
³ would have C:\PATH\NGT.EXE %1. So on execution NGT would be ³
³ passed just the filename for it to test NOT the extension ³
³ because you did not put in the %2. All functions are this ³
³ flexible, to allow you to use anything with all the switches ³
³ and things you want. Please let me know how I could make ³
³ these features better or easier for you to use. ³
ÀÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÙ

* NOTE

Hit 1 type in the extension you wish to TEST for. ex."ZIP" not ".ZIP"
Once that information is entered the other fields will open up. Use
The following list for guidance, this is how my machine at home is set
up for the archives files. Yours should look similar.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ***** WARNINGS ***** !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


1. The processor does not care what you put in these fields. It will
attempt to do that command regardless. This may cause either loss of
files or a RUNTIME ERROR, depending on where the problem occurred. Once
again, test all formats and the way you do business BEFORE putting it on
line.

2. Remember to tack on the .EXE part just like Searchlight doors. If there
is no extension "strange things happen."

4. These settings below are by no means the standard or whatever. If there
is a better way let me know.

5. If you don't have an archive format on your machine don't define it. Any
unrecognized formats will be virus scanned and date tested and converted
depending on the feature you have set. I suggest everyone have at least
PKZIP, PKUNZIP and ARJ on there machine.

OTHER OPTIONS:

- To skip processing on certain access levels make a text file called
ACCESS.TXT and type in the access levels you wish the processor to skip
processing on. This file must be in the same directory as RIPITUP.EXE.

Example:

255
254

Just keep everything left justified and don't add spaces you should be
fine. Remember if you put 255 in there and try to test it as the SYSOP
it will just bypass you. Test as a guest or don't make this file until
all testing is complete.

- The BYPASS.TXT is a text file of JUST EXTENSIONS you NEVER want to
process. Such as ANSIs, RIPs, EXEs, like that... So same as above make
a text file of the extensions NO LEADING "."

Example:

RIP
EXE
TXT

- To delete all those pesky BBS ads inside archives, follow the examples
above when setting up the DELETE function. Remember files with th
-AV security will not be touched just DATE tested. HINT: As I
notice new names that are common I just add it to the DELETE.IT file.

Example:
BBSAD.*
CWBBS.ANS
UNPROTEC.NET

- If you are using PKZIP to re-compress and you have the REGISTERED
version Put the AVEXTRA.TXT in the directory with RIPITUP.EXE. This
will be copied to the NODEXX directory when RE-COMPRESSING. Don't
forget to add "-xavextra.txt" and "-!" in you command line. See ZIP
documentation for further details.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

End Notes:

- Users below 2400 baud will be forced to use mono mode this was done
to maintain speed. I would hate to see how long a 300 baud person
would take to see an ansi that is 4k big. Geez...

- This is a BETA it will not run after JULY 94'

Let me know of any problems you encounter along the way. I convert to
ZIP's myself and really only care about testing and uncompressing the other
formats. Because on "MY BBS" everything is gonna be a .ZIP. Make sure
whatever format is your favorite on "YOUR BBS", that all functions work to
their MAXIMUM capability!

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
