; ----- COM-AND BBS setup script
; Commenced: 11/90 R.McG
; -----------------------------------------------------------------------
; Purpose:
; This script, named BBSETUP.CMD, is executed to setup the BBS
; script (version 1.1). Setup 1) identifies the port and modem
; control values, 2) identifies (and creates) the subdirs to be
; used. The script BBMAINT is used to update related files.
; -----------------------------------------------------------------------
; NOTE: This script expects to find a file named BBSDAT on 1) the
; current subdirectory, 2) The COM-AND= environment var specified
; subdirectory, or 3) the subdirectory where THIS script resides.
; If this file is found, it will be overwritten subsequently. If
; NOT found, BBSDAT will be created on the subdir where COM-AND=
; points. S29 is used to keep the file name (subroutine INIT).
; -----------------------------------------------------------------------
;
; Establish a DWINDOW, and change the text display to window default.
; .. Save the previous text display attribute, for restoration later.
;

  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/
