1.09 Added the ability to use wildcards for the name or names of the bbs
list(s) that you want to search.

1.08 Converted over to Turbo C.

1.07 Changed the system so that you may specify an output file. This will
make it easier for the novice to use the system.If you do not specify
a filename, all the output will still go to the screen. Also, deleted
the /buffer: command. This was made obsolete. This version is also
about 50% smaller!

1.06 SmartMode has been added back to Listread. However, it works in a
different manner. The information for SmartMode needs to be provided
from the BBS list provider. There is information in the DOC file that
will explain how to make the list "SmartMode Compatible". This is
an optional command called /smart This command will turn on the
SmartMode capabilities.

1.05 Corrected the displaying of the number of prefixes loaded. It was
displaying one more than there actually was. Also, just a bit more
performance from it. I think I am at a performance limit now, as I
can't find anything else to really do with it, and some changes I was
experimenting with actually made it slower! Also, the code is now
100% ANSI compliant. This will make it totally portable.

1.04 Just a bit more piqued performance. I changed the way that I was
handling pointer movement. Only about a 10% increase.

1.03 Added the command /buffer: to the command line parameters. This is
used to adjust the size of the disk buffer size. You can now change
the size of the buffer to give you the best performance. I have also
added a line to show how long the program took to run. This number is
simply the number of seconds that it took to run. Also piqued the
default buffer size up to 32767 bytes. This gives you about another
11% better performance.

1.02 I have added buffering to all the file read routines. This will speed
up reads 848%. This is most noticeable on floppy based systems. On
networks or caching controllers, it is not so noticeable.

1.01 Initial release. This was the first total re-write of the program
since I cam up with the original idea. There is no "smart-mode" in
this system, due to the many different layouts of bbs lists, and the
different telecommunication programs. Worked out the routines that
will handle the comments in the configuration file.

  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:
