Then edit it into a list of log names. I use Sidekick and call the
directory list file 'NOTES'


Then run the program LOGPROC

It will prompt you for the BBS Call.

It will then ask you to select the log type. WA7MBL changed formats
with version 5. If you are not sure which version you have, or have
both kinds, then select choice 2 and logproc will autoselect the log format.

If you selected option 2 or 5 it will ask you for the year. MBL 5 does
not store the year in the log. If you have a mix of MBL logs, it will
read the year from the 3 and 4 logs and use the value you entered for the
5 logs.

There is minimal error checking in the dialog, so take care what you enter.

If you upgraded to Version 5 and did not change logs, manually split them
with a word processor in its non ASCII mode.

The findings are stored in a file 'BBS_CALL.ASC', WHERE BBS_CALL is
the call of the BBS. The summary is written if the month changed, or
if the logfile ended.

Please run your logs through the program and send the BBS.ZCZ file
to [email protected]

This file was put together in a hurry, so that I could pass the program
out at a SYSOP meeting in Maryland on 2/12/89.

The source code is included in the arc file so you can see what criteria

are used to distinguish the types of messages. Early MBL logs may contain
other types which will show up as unrecognized (and beep at you) and be
counted as others. If you have any, and can remember what they were
please let me know.
