SL2WWIV

A Utility program
for SearchLight BBS systems

SL2WWIV is a utility program for SearchLight BBS systems which
will allow a Searchlight BBS to run door programs written for
WWIV BBS systems. WWIV generates the file CHAIN.TXT to pass
parameters to its door programs.
Searchlight passes its parameters through the use of command-line
meta-characters. It can not generate a CHAIN.TXT file.
However, through the use of this utility program, you can pass
command line parameters to SL2WWIV which will then create the
appropriate CHAIN.TXT file.

The syntax for running SL2WWIV is as follows...


SL2WWIV %P %B %M %A %G %U


%P Active communications port (0 for Local)

%G Graphics type (C, M, or N)

%M Minutes remaining in current session

%B Users baud rate (or LOCAL)

%A User's access level

%U User's name with spaces replaced by underbars

The path where your program will keep its data files.
This MUST be a complete pathname with a trailing backslash!
Leaving this blank will casue the program to assume the currect
path.



The way you should run SL2WWIV is to create a batch file to
run your door. For example... if you are running the door called
STARCLASH, you batch file called CLASH.BAT might look
something like this:

@Echo Off
SL2WWIV %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 C:\BBS\GAMES\CLASH\
STARCLAS


And the entry in your Searchlight DOORS.DEF file might look
like this...

0;0;1;50;StarClash;c:\bbs\games\clash;CLASH %P %B %M %A %G %U
