Procomm Scripts for GEnie 11-04-92
This is a series of Procomm scripts developed to make automate a couple of
Genie functions. For inidividuals who like myself prefer using Procomm instead
This is shareware so if you use the package I would appreciate a $15.00
registration fee. Plus for that I will supply updated versions and possibly
any new scripts I've developed. I will also attempt to resolve any problems
you may encounter. In order to facilitate bug fixes please LOG the entire
session where the error occurred and send me that file as GEmail.

I would recommend compiling the scripts with ASPCOMP before starting to use
them. If you run a script then change it for these changes to take effect it
must be recompiled (Procomm compiles it only if an ASP file exists and No ASX
file exists). To force a new compilation including your latest changes delete
any ASX file. Eg. if the script you change is NEWS.ASP before running delete
the file NEWS.ASX from your PCPLUS directory otherwise your changes will be
There is a way around this problem after change the script exit to the DOS
prompt in you PCPLUS directory type ASPCOMP NEWS. This will compile the script
automatically replacing any old ASX file.
Also note you must put your USERID,PASSWORD in metakey 9 for these scripts to
function. If you also insert GENSTART as an other metakey you can start the
sequence by choosing that metakey after starting Procomm.
Another change required is you must correct the line at the top of most
scripts which reads DEFINE ENTRY or define dial_dir (I wasn't consistent) this
number should be set to point to the entry for GENIE in your Procomm (PCPLUS
dialing directory ALT-D).
To use the SNDMAIL script you must modify the section which selects the GEMAIL
address based on the file name.
Added a script for transmitting a GENIE fax from a text file.
Added a logon Menu script GENSTART.
Added a down load file scripts (also changed menu and colored future options
to indicate not yet implemented)
corrected problems with fax send script
modified SNDMAIL,SNDMAIL, NEWS to return to menu script upon completion
modified profile search script to correctly handle optional question as well
as to terminate at the top menu. Also fixed IF CONNECTED to not logon
modified news script to current GEnie configuration but this may change again
If you start Procom with the command PCPLUS /fGENSTART
a script menu will appear for you to select the desired operation
