TELIX 3.xx SCRIPTS FOR GENIE AND COMPUSERVE
WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT ANOTHER BUNCH OF TELIX SCRIPTS?...
These two scripts were inspired by GENIECIS.PKA by F. Jones
located in this library. His neat method of extracting the user
ID from inside parentheses in the name portion of the dialing
directory is employed in both scripts as a function called
As an added plus, these scripts will open a capture file named
by the variable fspec in the function comm() and will
automatically delete the old version of the file every time you
log on anew. But wait... there's more. These scripts will
actually close the capture file for you and even hangup the
phone by continuously looking for the host to send the string
defined as logoff in the function comm() after you send 'bye'.
SO HOW DO I GET THESE SCRIPTS TO WORK FOR ME?...
To setup ge.slt
First, change the definition of dial_no in the function main()
to the entry number for GEnie in your dialing directory.
eg: str dial_no = "1";
Will dial directory entry number one. Don't forget the quotes
around the number as the dial() function expects to see a string.
Next, change the definition of fspec in the function comm() to
reflect the file spec for your capture file.
eg: str fspec = "c:\comm\tlx\ge.log"
Will open a capture file named ge.log in the \comm\tlx directory
of drive c:.
After you have changed both of these variables to suit your
particular situation, save the modified script file and compile
it using telix's cs compiler.
eg: cs ge.slt
Finally, enter your ID no in parentheses somewhere in the name
field of the dialing directory entry you are going to call from
the script file and be sure your password is in the field
reserved for it in that entry.
To setup cis.slt
Same definition changes... Different definitions... The scripts
are almost identical.
Well waddya want for twenty-five cents? From the dos prompt you
can type telix sge and watch the magic happen... Or better
yet, improve on these scripts, make them do even more, and leave
them here on GEnie for me to download.
