C-implementation to a Pascal-implementation. Great care has been taken
into the coorporation of fast, error-free, commercial (and registered)
routines to make the new version fast (and not to big).
When a program is rewritten, old bugs can be copied, they could be
gone and new ones are introduced. FileDoor has many new features
that are nice for both user AND SysOp. These features make the pro-
gram very complex though. More than 8 experienced alpha-testers have
worked for more than 4 months to report all possible errors so I could
fix them, there could be bugs though (but to see the bright side, even
products like MsDos and Windows 3.0 contain bugs and you must pay for
those products). A version 2.02á is already installed at the alpha/beta
nodes so any report from you can be implemented at high speed into the
beta release and will result in a fast (and good) update.
When you would like to report a bug or have any suggestions, you are
asked to send them to me in one of ways:
- Netmail to 2:512/100.5 (best) to Rob van.hoeven (mind the point)
- Netmail to 2:512/100 (good) ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, ,,
- Echomail in DISP (good) ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, ,,
- Echomail in RA_UTIL (wors) ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, ,,
- A letter (snailmail) (good)
- Crashmail to 2:512/100 (good)
DISP is available in zones 2 and 1, RA_UTIL also but I can imagine
that QuickBBS and SBBS users will dislike this. It is impossible
for me though, to scroll thru more than 1500 messages per week so
I must make a selection. You can always contact one of the support
nodes (they carry DISP) to submit your problems (see list in the
When entering echomail in one of the above areas, you are asked to
use the following subject 'FDBUG: text' for bugs and 'FDSUG: text'
for suggestions. My XRS-system will alarm me when I receive these
kind of messages....
