PRODOOR ZIP MAIL QUICK READER____VERSION 2.50_____ 08-10-91______
This program was written to use the ZIPM mail packet format from
PRODOOR BBS's. basically Prodoor searches for your mail collects it
in to one packet then compresses it to about half the original size
with Phil Katz's PKZIP. You must call a Prodoor BBS select ZIPM
from the main menu( usually the command is ZIPM A ) you will then
see the mail processed and returned to the main menu where you
must select download, the mail packet will automatically be the
first file when downloading with a batch format ( I use Zmodem
batch ) download the file then use the Prodoor Zip Mail Quick
Reader to view , print , uncompress to disk , test , view
compression listing. This program is smaller and faster than
most mail packet readers.
First and most important PKUNZIP.EXE (R) must be in the same
directory as ZIPMREAD.EXE. If not, you will get a short message and
a fatal error. (PKUNZIP.EXE is a registered trademark of PKWARE, Inc.)
When prompted to input mail filename use ( toolm?.zip) or any other
zip file. You should use the full path name ex."c:\procomm\toolm11.zip"
if the mail file is not in the current directory, sorry no wildcards
(1) Unzip to console unzips to the screen, command bar will appear at
the bottom of the page,spacebar toggles to next page,return toggles
to next line,ESCape aborts listing.
(2) Unzip to printer only requires that you have a printer installed on
(3) Unzip to disk uncompresses the mail to a text file and writes this
to the disk path you input. (This path must be valid or the text
file will not be written.)
(4) Test zip file tests the zip file integrity.
(5) View zip listing displays length,method,size, ratio,date,time,crc-32,
attributes,name. This program can be installed in Procomm Plus and
possibly others as a external program option. The program can be
halted at any time by pressing the control and break keys. Microsoft
compatible mouse supported.
