Tag Line Xpress v4.00

release date 05/20/94

The following is specific documentation for installing Tag Line
Xpress v4 into the following mail readers:

Silly Little Mail Reader (SLMR) v2.0 v2.1 v2.1a
Off Line Xpress (OLX) v2.1 v2.2 v3.0 v3.01 v3.02 v3.10 v3.5

If you experience double taglines with any reader, you can
either use the UNTAG utility provided with this package to
eliminate the secondary tagline; or disable the TLX Reader
Signature (from the TLX Configuration Menu, Tagline Settings).


Silly Little Mail Reader
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tag Line Xpress installs automatically into Silly Little Mail
Reader (SLMR).

If you experience double taglines with SLMR, you can use the
UNTAG.EXE utility provided with this archive. From within SLMR,
modify the Configuration option PACKERS and add NEWZIP before
the compress command, e.g.

Old Option> PKZIP -A !
New Option> \path\NEWZIP PKZIP -A !

TLX will create a batch file called NEWZIP.BAT in the mail
reader directory, you should edit it and ensure that the file
reads:

\path\UNTAG %4
%1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9

If you have changed your compress commands, change the UNTAG %
number to the parameter for the replies message file that is
compressed by the packer.


Advanced Information
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This information is provided only to satisfy curiosity, and
explain the process by which TLX works.

The following options are automatically modified by TLX within
the SLMR configuration:

ENABLETAGS - taglines will be disabled within SLMR - 01
REPLYHEADER - header on replies for the Quote Enhancer - Y
QSTYLE - quoting style for reply file generated (none) - 01
QSTRING - quote characters to use for reply file (none) -blank-
EDITOR - Editor name, \path\TLX //BC f *
SWAP - swapping enabled - Y
SWAPXMSEMS - EMS/XMS swapping enabled - Y
QUOTEDFILE - file that SLMR creates - REPLY.MSG
REPLYFILE - file that SLMR reads with changes - REPLY.MSG


Off Line Xpress
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tag Line Xpress installs automatically into Off Line Xpress
versions 2 and 3.

In OLX v3.x - using the internal editor causes TLX to behave
differently. You have to press the F7 key to quote your reply,
and the F8 key to attach a tagline.

Deluxe
~~~~~~~

Tag Line Xpress installs automatically into Deluxe.

There are two options you MUST change manually within Deluxe's
configuration; FLAGS "Show message header in your editor" to NO;
and SuperShell to YES. You should delete all the taglines stored
by Deluxe and enter them into TLX instead.

If you experience double taglines with Deluxe, you can use the
UNTAG.EXE utility provided with this archive. Within the Deluxe
Configuration file add NEWZIP.BAT before the compress command,
e.g.

Old Option> PKZIP -A
New Option> \path\NEWZIP.BAT PKZIP -A

TLX will create a batch file called NEWZIP.BAT in the mail
reader directory, you should edit it and ensure that the file
reads:

\path\UNTAG %4
%1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9

If you have changed your compress commands, change the UNTAG %
number to the parameter for the replies message file that is
compressed by the packer.


Advanced Information
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This information is provided only to satisfy curiosity, and
explain the process by which TLX works.

The following options are automatically modified by TLX within
the Deluxe configuration:

Editors - C:\path\TLX //BC f * %O
Show message header - NO (manually)
SuperShell - YES (manually)


Jabber
~~~~~~

Tag Line Xpress installs automatically into version 1.2 of
Jabber. Other versions have not been tested with TLX and are not
guaranteed to work.

If you experience double taglines with Jabber, you can use the
UNTAG.EXE utility provided with this archive. Within the Jabber
Configuration file add NEWZIP.BAT before the compress command,
e.g.

Old Option> {ZIP=PKZIP !}
New Option> {ZIP=\path\NEWZIP.BAT PKZIP !}

TLX will create a batch file called NEWZIP.BAT in the mail
reader directory, you should edit it and ensure that the file
reads:

\path\UNTAG %2
%1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9

If you have changed your compress commands, change the UNTAG %
number to the parameter for the replies message file that is
compressed by the packer.


Advanced Information
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This information is provided only to satisfy curiosity, and
explain the process by which TLX works.

The following options are automatically modified by TLX within
the Jabber configuration file:

SWAP=Yes
SWAPEMS=Yes
QUOTE_QUOTE=No
QUOTE_REPLY=No
REPLYHEADER=Yes
PREPROCESS=\path\TLX //BC q C:\path\ @[email protected]
POSTPROCESS=\path\TLX //BC t C:\path\ @[email protected]
TAG_QUERY=Never

The batch file TLX_RUN.BAT contains the following:

\path\TLX //BC f * %1

TLX simply ties into the PRE and POST PROCESS options in Jabber.
However, there is apparently a small bug within v1.1 that does
not add the required message header to the reply file before TLX
can quote it - hence the quote enhancer does NOT work! When this
problem is fixed by the author, TLX will quote your messages. In
the meanwhile - if you use an external editor you can add the
TLX command line to a batch file to execute before calling your
editor; or assign an F key if you use the internal editor.


Speed Read
~~~~~~~~~~

Tag Line Xpress installs automatically into Speed Read (Speed).

If you experience double taglines with Speed, you can use the
UNTAG.EXE utility provided with this archive. From within Speed,
modify the Configuration option Compression Prgs. and add NEWZIP
before the compress command, e.g.

Old Option> PKZIP -m -u %s
New Option> COMMAND.COM /c \path\NEWZIP.BAT PKZIP -m -u %s

TLX will create a batch file called NEWZIP.BAT in the mail
reader directory, you should edit it and ensure that the file
reads:

\path\UNTAG %5
%1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9

If you have changed your compress commands, change the UNTAG %
number to the parameter for the replies message file that is
compressed by the packer.


Advanced Information
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This information is provided only to satisfy curiosity, and
explain the process by which TLX works.

The following options are automatically modified by TLX within
the SpeedRead configuration:

General Setup - Quoting - Initials NONE
Quote String BLANK
External Programs - Editor -
\path\TLX //BC f * %s
Toggles/Options - Swapping ON
Taglines OFF (5)
Reply Header ON

Optionally, you can install TLX as an External Tagline Manager
if you do not wish to use the Quote enhancer and signature
features of TLX.

You have to modify the following manually within the SpeedRead
configuration (do NOT install TLX automatically):

General Setup - Tagline Mgr -
\path\TLX //BC g * %s
Tag Ret. File TLX.TAG

where \path\ is the path to TLX's config and database.

You can only call TLX AFTER you edit your message since TLX
needs to read your message to make tagline suggestions.


MegaReader
~~~~~~~~~~

TLX installs automatically into MegaReader.

Note that since MegaReader uses a non-standard message header
format, the TLX quote enhancer will not work. However the
tagline management capabilities of TLX are not affected.

You have to be using the internal editor with the default
configuration. When you are done editing, press ALT-S (for Spell
Check) and MegaReader will execute TLX instead which adds the
tagline for you. If you are using a spell checker, you will have
to edit the batch file TLX_RUN.BAT and add it manually before
the TLX command line, and both the spell checker and TLX will
work. If you are using an EXTERNAL editor, MegaReader does NOT
access the Spell Checker batch file! You will have to edit the
external editor batch file to include the TLX command line after
the editor is called. You should leave the Spell Checker swap
option as YES, giving TLX more memory to operate in.

MegaReader does not allow it's tagline to be disabled if it is
unregistered. And it is not possible to use the UNTAG utility
with MegaReader due to the method in which it calls PKZIP. If
you are experiencing double taglines in your replies, you will
have to manually fix them by the following process:

1> UnZIP the reply packet PKUNZIP packet.REP;
2> Type UNTAG packet.MSG;
3> ZIP the reply packet PKZIP packet.REP packet.MSG

This can be achieved automatically with a simple batch file:

@ECHO OFF
PKUNZIP %1.REP
UNTAG %1
PKZIP %1.REP %1.MSG

and execute this batch file with the packet name (NO extension)
on the command line, it extracts the reply file, corrects the
double tagline problem, and then compresses it again.

Advanced Information
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This information is provided only to satisfy curiosity, and
explain the process by which TLX works.

The following options are automatically modified by TLX within
the MegaReader configuration:

Spell Checker - \path\TLX t * MESSAGE.TXT

where \path\ is the path to TLX's config and database.


Blue Wave
~~~~~~~~~

Tag Line Xpress installs automatically into Blue Wave.

If you experience double taglines with Blue Wave, you can use
the UNTAG.EXE utility provided with this archive. From within
Blue Wave, modify the Configuration option ARCHIVERS and add
NEWZIP before the compress command, e.g.

Old Option> C:\ZIP\PKZIP.EXE @F @I
New Option> \path\NEWZIP C:\ZIP\PKZIP.EXE @F @I

TLX will create a batch file called NEWZIP.BAT in the mail
reader directory, you should edit it and ensure that the file
reads:

\path\UNTAG %3
%1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9

If you have changed your compress commands, change the UNTAG %
number to the parameter for the replies message file that is
compressed by the packer.


Advanced Information
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This information is provided only to satisfy curiosity, and
explain the process by which TLX works.

The following options are automatically modified by TLX within
the Blue Wave configuration:

MISCELLANEOUS: ENTER/REPLY OPTIONS: When to Quote replies = YES
: Insert quote header = YES
MISCELLANEOUS: TAGLINE CONFIGURATION: Selection = NONE
DIRECTORIES: Editor file path: = \path\TLX_RUN.BAT
STRINGS: Quote Header String: =
::To: @T From: @F Subj: @S ::@[email protected]

The batch file TLX_RUN.BAT contains the following:

\path\TLX f * %1


1st Reader
~~~~~~~~~~

Tag Line Xpress installs automatically into 1st Reader.

Note that since 1st Reader uses a non-standard message header
format, the TLX quote enhancer will not work. However the
tagline management capabilities of TLX are not affected.

If you experience double taglines with 1st Reader, you can use
the UNTAG.EXE utility provided with this archive. From within
1st Reader, modify the Setup option PACK and add NEWZIP before
the compress command, e.g.

Old Option> @API$(5)QZIP %1 %2 /NOCLS /CURSOR_OFF
New Option> \path\NEWZIP PKZIP %1 %2

Note that the classic PKZIP program has been used instead of
QZIP that comes with 1st Reader.

TLX will create a batch file called NEWZIP.BAT in the mail
reader directory, you should edit it and ensure that the file
reads:

\path\UNTAG %3
%1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9

If you have changed your compress commands, change the UNTAG %
number to the parameter for the replies message file that is
compressed by the packer.


Advanced Information
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This information is provided only to satisfy curiosity, and
explain the process by which TLX works.

No modifications are done to the 1st Reader configuration by
TLX. A new batch file is created called $$SPELL.BAT (if this
file exists, it is appended to). 1st Reader calls this batch
file automatically after each reply is entered ONLY IF you
select to SPELL CHECK the message! You MUST choose to do so in
order to use TLX!

TLX also creates a batch file TLX_RUN.BAT containing the
following, if you choose to use an external editor you must edit
this file and enter your editor name, and also modify the 1st
Reader configuration with this batch file as the external
editor:

Your Editor %1 %2 %3 %4 %5
\path\TLX t * %1


RoboMail
~~~~~~~~

Tag Line Xpress installs automatically into RoboMail.

Note that since the internal editor does not allow any method to
'hook' external programs, TLX can only work with an EXTERNAL
editor! When installed, TLX will use the default editor name
that it finds in the RoboMail configuration, if this is wrong or
if you change your editor, make the change ONLY in the TLX
configuration (System Settings, Editor) - NOT in RoboMail!

There is a small bug within RoboMail v1.30 that add a message
header to replies. Due to this bug, if you attempt to re-edit a
message, TLX will be forced to requote the message.

If you experience double taglines with RoboMail, you can use the
UNTAG.EXE utility provided with this archive. From within
RoboMail, modify the Configuration option Archive Manupilation
Create ZIP and add NEWZIP before the compress command, e.g.

Old Option> PKZIP.EXE @T @S
New Option> NEWZIP PKZIP.EXE @T @S

TLX will create a batch file called NEWZIP.BAT in the mail
reader directory, you should edit it and ensure that the file
reads:

\path\UNTAG \path\HOLD\*.MSG
%1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9

RoboMail uses a file list to pass parameters to PKZIP, this
NEWZIP batch file should work for most configurations.


Advanced Information
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This information is provided only to satisfy curiosity, and
explain the process by which TLX works.


The following options are automatically modified by TLX within
the RoboMail configuration:

XMS Swap = Y
EMS Swap = Y
External Editor = \path\TLX //BC f * %S %T
Editor RAM = 640
Original File = ORIGINAL.TXT
Reply File = REPLY.TXT
Quote Style = Full text quoted
Quote Prefix =
Taglines = Disabled
Fido Taglines = Disabled

TLX supports the RoboMail 'Tag-n-quote' system. When TLX
installs itself automatically, it forces RoboMail to quote the
entire message. If you prefer to use the 'Tag-n-quote' system,
simply change RoboMail's configuration (Quoting Options) to
REFORMAT TAGGED LINES; this will make TLX quote only the lines
that you tag with the space bar within RoboMail. Remember, if
you do not tag any lines, the quote box will be empty!


Silver Xpress
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tag Line Xpress installs automatically into Silver Xpress.

If you experience double taglines with Silver Xpress, you can
use the UNTAG.EXE utility provided with this archive. From
within Silver Xpress, modify the Configuration option PACKERS
and add NEWZIP before the compress command, e.g.

Old Option> $PKZIP -M !
New Option> $\path\NEWZIP PKZIP -M !

TLX will create a batch file called NEWZIP.BAT in the mail
reader directory, you should edit it and ensure that the file
reads:

\path\UNTAG %4
%1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9

If you have changed your compress commands, change the UNTAG %
number to the parameter for the replies message file that is
compressed by the packer.
