Version 1.51

QUICK START INSTRUCTIONS FOR AceComm & Utilities

Last revised 05/17/93

























The AceComm package is distributed in a compressed format. The
compression utility used with AceComm is the current version of
LHA (this writing LHA213). AceComm package and sub-packages are
compressed as SelF eXtracting "SFX" files. This means the
compressed file "ARCHIVE" uses an .EXE file extention. This SFX
format allows you the user to simply type the name of an
archive. The archive's SFX code will execute, and extract the
files to their un-compressed form.

Many BBS systems will store the distributed SFX file inside an
archive envelope of their default archiver.

QUICK SETUP STEPS

Step 1
- Un compress the AceComm package into it's own subdirectory.
This example assumes the filename ACE0520.EXE
AceComm filenames are dated eith release date.
ACE 05 20 .EXE
month day SFX
where 0520 means 05/20 or May 20 releasee date
.EXE means AceComm is distributed as a SelF eXtracting

archive (SFX)

Example
At the DOS prompt type: md \ace
At the DOS prompt type: copy ACE0520.EXE \ACE
At the DOS prompt type: cd \ace
At the DOS prompt type: ACE0520

The basic setup files will be ready in a subdirectory ACE.
Other files that include SFX in the filename and end in
.EXE file extentiion, are also SelF eXtracting archives.
These files are enhancements to the basic setup.

Step 2
- Read ACTL.DOC (1 page)
- Run ACTL.EXE (complies ACE.CTL into ACE.PRM)

Example ACTL ace.ctl
ACTL.EXE need only be run when creating a new re-initialized
PRM file is desired. All PRM-data is editable from within
inside AceComm.

Step 3
- Run ACE.EXE
At the DOS prompt type: ACE







- OPTIONAL -
Not required for QWIK START

After having become familar with AceComm, you may decide to
edit ACE.CTL for some personal defaults. This will allow
future compilations to use your custom setup instructions.


The following are enhancements to the AceComm package

a) FON_SFX.EXE
FON_SFX contains several sample .BBS, FON, and .NOD files.

It is suggested that FON_SFX be un-compressed inside a
subdirectory to the AceComm directory

Example: C:\ACE\FON

At the DOS prompt type: md \ace\fon
At the DOS prompt type: copy FON_SFX.EXE \ace\fon
At the DOS prompt type: cd \ace\fon
At the DOS prompt type: FON_SFX
At the DOS prompt type: cd \ace

NOTE: ACTL creates these directories if defined in ACE.CTL and
not found.

b) KTS_SFX.EXE
KTS_SFX contains the KTS files included in the default
setup, as well as the ascii versions. Ascii version KTS
files share the filename with LTS files, but use .ASC
extention.

It is suggested that KTS_SFX be un-compressed inside a
subdirectory to the AceComm directory

Example: C:\ACE\KTS

At the DOS prompt type: md \ace\kts
At the DOS prompt type: copy KTS_SFX.EXE \ace\kts
At the DOS prompt type: cd \ace\kts
At the DOS prompt type: KTS_SFX
At the DOS prompt type: cd \ace

(.KTS files are the Key Translation Sequence files for
terminals) This file contains ascii versions of .KTS files.
ASC files are compiled into KTS files using KTS.EXE.







c) UTIL_SFX.EXE
UTIL_SFX contains several utilities that enhance the AceComm
package. Each utility has it's .DOC file.

It is suggested that UTIL_SFX be un-compressed inside a
subdirectory to the AceComm directory

Example: C:\ACE\UTIL

At the DOS prompt type: md \ace\util
At the DOS prompt type: copy UTIL_SFX.EXE \ace\util
At the DOS prompt type: cd \ace\util
At the DOS prompt type: UTIL_SFX
At the DOS prompt type: cd \ace

CBF.EXE can compile direct FBL output into a FON file. 'CBF
1_114.BBS'

IDX.EXE creates a very small index file so that AceComm can
use a RAW NODELIST file for mailer mode/file requests.

FBL.EXE creates a .BBS and .NOD file from the raw nodelist for
a given NET HOST

KTS.EXE compiles a Key Translation Sequence file from ascii to
binary format.

ANSI.EXE filters ANSI and AVATAR video control sequence codes
from files. ANSI.EXE can also be used to view the files.




Custom colors, sounds, etc.
- See bottom of ACE.CTL file.
- See MASS MENU area inside PRM-data editor (inside AceComm)


Multiple .FON files
- Selectable from inside the FON LIST AREA
