What this program is/does:

- Has RIP, ANSI, MONO, support.
- The best looking processor to the user (Lights up buttons, pretty!)
- Puts YOUR BBS Name in the title.
- HIGHLY configurable.
- Run tests on ANY file extension, you program to test for.
- Will Tests GIF's for integrity, resolution, etc...
- Scans for Viruses, whichever utility you choose.
- Converts between ANY format.
- Keeps -AV Security on ZIPs.
- Date checks files uploaded, even within archives.
- Checks for embedded archives.
- Auto Increments the Date Cutoff monthly.
- Moves files offline for Sysop review.
- Deletes Unwanted files.
- Mails Sysop on errors.
- Multi-Node support.
- Fast!, had to put delays in it to see what was going on.
- User Access Bypass.
- File Extension Bypass.
- Test different directories and disable features from the command line.
- Small, only 40k upon execution. 20k when not running.
- Written with Turbo Pascal 7.0 with the Searchlight TPU's.

Why this program was written:

No real good file processors, I liked, had RIP support. Plus, most of the
ones for SL are kinda hum-drum. They work but, not much for the user to
look at. I saw one that had a status bar option at the bottom for the
SYSOP, that was nice. I later plan to implement that feature or something
similar.

Who Wrote This:

All of us are, or were, members of the US Army Information Software
Development Team at Ft. Lee, VA. (USAISSDCL) with time on our hands
now and again. Presently working on the Standard Army Ammunition System
or SAAS. Tracking every piece of ammo the Army has, a database from
hell, for sure. (Our last machine was 14 GIG's thank GOD for better
databases these days).

Members of GLOBAL-Tech Software are:

Micheal A. Allen - (Founder, now gone to Germany)
David Smith - (Co-President)
Daniel C. Slagle - (Searchlight guy, we just don't do BBS stuff)
Steve Baker - (The Novell guru)
Ian Noble - (Give me UNIX or death)
Jon Parsons - (Mr. Binary Tree)

The program was written in Turbo Pascal 7.0 using the Searchlight TPU's.
Just Mike, Baker, and me (Dan) worked on RIPITUP! Processor.

Thanks also to the Crash and Burn Society for their efforts in RIP and
helping me come back down to the user level with the documentation.

If you really want to call be voice you can (804) 861-4744 after 6 EST
but, I perfer you call the BBS (804) 732-1189 or get in touch though the
SL_Net. If you call be nice to the wife, she is not to keen on this
computer stuff, she is better at taking care of the 2 munchkins.

THE QUICK SETUP!

1...Make a directory called RIPITUP copy all files from ZIP to it.
See FILES.LST to make sure you received all programs.
2...Run RIPITCFG.EXE.
3...Change all paths to reflect your programs on your computer.
4...Set your Autodoor in your Searchlight CONFIG similar to example below.
5...Test you config by running - RIPITUP /M /Ftest.txt /Uc:\temp
6...Look for any problems! 
7...Done! ³
ÃÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ¿
³ This forces output to a file ³
³ called test.txt, and tests all ³
³ files in C:\TEMP. You can do ³
³ this with the RIP and ANSI too.³

Upload Autodoor Example:
(NO! switches, see below)
³

1. Command ....................... C:\BBS\RIPITUP\RIPITUP.EXE
2. Directory Path . ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ¿
3. Communications Support ........ None ³
4. Abort Method .................. Terminate *Must be a DOT for Single
5. Write Protection .............. No or Multi-Node operation.
6. Parameter File ................ None DON'T put a FULL path!
7. Pause After Door .............. No The UPLOADS.BBS directory
will always be tested by
default.

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

The Commands: From a Searchlight node directory, after shelling out of SL.
(in other words go to a DOS prompt after logging in the BBS,
and stay in that directory. Type a full path to RIPITUP)

ex.- C:\RIPITUP\RIPITUP.EXE /?


RIP IT UP!-Load Processor 1.2 áeta
GLOBAL-Tech Software

/M - Forces Mono mode. (2400 Baud Owners/Testing)
/A - Forces ANSI output mode.
/R - Forces RIP output mode.
/D - Bypass DATE check as set in RIPITCFG
/F - Write output a filename.
ex. RIPITUP /R /FC:\SLBBS\RIPOUT.RIP
/U - Forces a directory to process
ex. RIPITUP /UC:\DOWNLOAD


/M/A/R are to allow you to pick what type of file to write to.

The /U forces a directory that has just received a new Upload

The /F was made to write files to a filename. Helpful when you want to
see what the user sees.

The /D was added because sometimes I download OLD files and I want to
put up on the BBS. Rather than unzipping it, scanning it, etc.. I
just type RIPITUP /D /UC:\DOWNLD. Too easy huh?

³ Note: Once the file processor is running, do NOT put any ³
³ switches in the command line. It will be auto detected. ³
³ Unless you (for some reason) want to force the user to ³
³ use a certain display. The switches are just there for ³
³ you to play with while you are setting it up, plus so I ³
³ could write RIP's and Ansi's to a file so I know what the ³
³ user sees. You can do the same, and later type the Ansi ³
³ file to the screen or use RIPaint or something to view ³
³ the RIP's you created with the /r switch. ³

- If it says RIULP_ERROR #2 Cannot find Searchlight .SL2 files your not in
a Searchlight main nodes directory.

- Make sure you have your "SET SLBBS=" statement set in you autoexec.bat.

For real compatibility, we decided for everything we had happen we would
check the DOS ERROR LEVEL and of course log all errors. For those of you
who have NO idea what I am talking about, whenever a program executes the
programmers put in return codes to tell them what happened in execution of
their program. If everything went O.K. it comes back to DOS with a "0".
This allows you the flexibility to add in any program that returns a DOS
error level, (99.9% do!). Check with the documentation of the program you
wish to use. The following is a list of DOS errors for some of the more
common programs. You may see some of these come up in your ERRORS.LOG
file or if you have other problems, (memory for example). This will help
you track down the problems, so you can tweak your settings for your
setup. See the RIPITCFG.TXT for setup insight. These are excerpts from
the actual programs .DOC files.

  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/
