The three files you have just unZIPped are TAPCIS scripts which automate
the retrieval of three of ZiffNet's most popular features: NewsBytes
(NEWSBITS.SCR), PC Week Extra! (PCWEEKLY.SCR), and What's New (HIGHLITE.SCR).
There are two ways to run them:
1. Rename any one of the scripts to FRONTEND.SCR, put it in your main
TAPCIS subdirectory, and start TAPCIS's session with an . If you
already have a FRONTEND.SCR, you can append this script to it.
2. Run TAPCIS as usual, and press to remain on-line after the
automatic session has executed; running TAPCIS nteractively will
accomplish the same result. If you are in a forum, type EXIT at its prompt
before you start the script. At the ! prompt, press and type in the
path and file name of the script you would like to execute. It will upload
and run automatically, and will return you to the ! prompt afterwards.
You can download the PC Week material and the Newsbytes material to
a file and path of your specification. To tell the script where you want
the download to go, edit these scripts and change the references to
C:\TAP\PCWEEK.NEW or C:\TAP\BITS.NEW respectively to the path and file name
Feel free to contact me about any bugs, problems, ideas, or suggestions
for improvements you may have. If you just want to praise the scripts, you're
welcome to do that too.
