PCKERMIT.EXE UPDATE DOCUMENTATION


December 10, 1985

Change from version 1.17 to 1.18

The fix in LCKFIO.C for renaming files was wrong. Version 1.17 would give
an error if you were receiving a duplicate filename that had an extension
but whose root filename was less than 8 characters (i.e. FILEN.EXT).

OLD: Version 1.17 was:

if (len <= 8) sprintf(bp,".~%d ",d+1); /* JRM Add period if needed */
else sprintf(bp,"~%d ",d+1); /* Make and return name~(d+1) */
*s = buf;

NEW: Version 1.18 is:

if (len <= 8 && buf[len-1] != '.') sprintf(bp,".~%d ",d+1); /* JRM Add
else sprintf(bp,"~%d ",d+1); /* Make and return name~(d+1) */
*s = buf;

December 6, 1985 VERSION 1.17
[!!! NOTE: THIS WAS WRONG. SEE VERSION 1.18 ABOVE !!!]

Change from version 1.16 to 1.17:

LCKUSER.C modified to correctly rename files of 8 characters or less with
no extension in routine ZNEWN. Change:

OLD: Version 1.16 was:

sprintf(bp,"~%d ",d+1); /* Make and return name~(d+1) */
*s = buf;

NEW: Vesion 1.17 is:

if (len <= 8) sprintf(bp,".~%d ",d+1); /* JRM Add period if needed */
else sprintf(bp,"~%d ",d+1); /* Make and return name~(d+1) */
*s = buf;

  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/
