It provides the Autosig file maintenance functions as well as automating the message functions. In addition it automates script editing , script execution and library functions. In general, WinAto directly provides the off-line functions associated with communicating with CompuServe, and provides the on-line functions by executing ATO as a DOS application under Windows, with the appropriate command line parameters to accomplish the desired on-line task.tN^€&€€* Ȁ‚‚‚‚ÿSince it is a Windows application, WinAto is heavily oriented toward the use of a pointing device. However, an effort has been made to provide keyboard access to most of the functions of the program.AutoSig, commonly known as ATO, has been around since 1985 and therefore exists in several versions. WinAto was implemented to interface with AutoSig 6.8. Compatibility with previous versions of ATO is not assured. WinAto utilizes the ATO definition file, autosig.dfn, to maintain the configuration information. To prevent any problems which may be caused by overlapping operations, it is imperative that all access to ATO be accomplished through WinAto. Starting a separate ATO session outside of WinAto while WinAto is also being utilized could result in the definition file being corrupted. When an ATO function has been started by WinAto, WinAto will refuse to allow changes that will effect the definition file until the on-line function is completed. This is necessitated by the fact that ATO reads the definition file at the start off it's execution and writes the definitions back before it terminates. Any changes made to the file outside of ATO will be lost when ATO terminates. By the same token, changes made to the definition information while ATO is executing may not be recorded in the file until ATO terminates, consequently, those changes will not be known to WinAto until ATO terminates. WinAto, on the other handÔO2RZO, reads the definition file at the start of execution, but updates it immediately when a change is made. Only one WinAto execution instance is allowed at one time.

$€€* Ȁ‚‚ÿThe WinAto main window consists of the caption bar, the menu bar, an icon bar and the main window area. The caption and menu bars operate in the same manner as most other windows programs. The icon bar includes two drop down list boxes used for forum and host selection, and a set of graphic icons. The icons provide quick access to menu commands and may only be utilized with a pointing device. The main window area is only used as a desktop and may be minimized if desired.7

The script file list contains all of the script files that exist in the AutoSig directory. To create a new script, select the New button. The cursor will display at the start of the edit box. Enter the statements for the new script. When all of the statements have been entered, the Save As button may be used to allow entry of the script file name. Enter the name to be assigned to the script file without an extension, then choose "OK". If the file already exists you will be asked to confirm that you wish to append the new script to the existing file. "Yes" indicates append, "No" indicates the existing file is to be overwritten. You may "Cancel" to abort. The script file names "auto", "auto1" and "auto2" ha°ëõësëve special meaning to WinAto. Assigning "auto" as the name of a script indicates to WinAto that you wish to execute the script the next time an autopass is executed. Assigning "auto1" as the name of a script file indicates that WinAto should execute the script the next time auto pass 1 is executed.

However, an attempt has been made to provide keyboard access wherever possible for those who do not like rodents, trackballs, etc., or who find it easier or faster to use a keyboard at times.WinAto is primarily implemented using the standard dialog boxes and controls provided by Windows and the Microsoft Software Development Kit. As such, much of the mouse and keyboard operations are defined by Windows. The Microsoft Windows User's Guide, in Chapter 2 Basic Skills, describes the basic operation of the mouse and keyboard in the Windows environment. Special attention should be paid to the sections on "Working with Dialog Boxes" and "Working with Text". .#.&€€* Ȁ‚‚‚‚ÿButton controls in dialog boxes all have one character underlined in the button caption. Pressing the underlined character along with the Alt key will normally select the button. The Esc key activates a Cancel button where available. The Enter key normally activates an "OK" button. The Tab and keys move between buttons, list boxes and edit boxes within a dialog box.Where multiple dialog boxes are open, i.e., "Read Message" and "Compose/Edit Message", the F6 can be used to switch between them.tN.€&€€* Ȁ‚‚‚‚ÿSome of the menu items have accelerator keys defined. These keys are used with the Ctrl key. They are active at all times except when a modal dialog box is opened. Modal dialog boxes are dialog boxes which do not allow activating other windows until the dialog box is closed.Most of the lists used in dialog boxes are drop down lists. They normally appear in the dialog box as a one line box with an down arrow to the right of the box. The box contains the current selection from the list. The list box may be dropped down by clicking the mouse on the arrow.tû¢ý±÷ With the keyboard a list may be dropped down by tabbing to the list, and then using the to drop the list. The arrow keys may then be used to move up and down the list. When the desired list item is reached, the list may be closed by or Tab.5€5!-ÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿINI file descriptionC5C%€€* €‚€ÿWinAto Initialization FileêºCê02€€* Ȁ‚‚‚€€€‚‚ÿChangeable options and parameters are maintained in an initialization file.

When headers are marked from the ATO forum menu, ATO automatically updates the HMN so that it will not repeat the same headers the next time the forum is scanned. When WinAto is used to scan headers, it also updates the HMN. For headers downloaded with the Q and H commands, WinAto sets the HMN to one greater than the highest message number included in the scan. Since you may not be scanning all of the sections in a forum, this number may be higher than the highest message number in the headers you actually downloaded. When headers have been downloaded using the J command, WinAto sets the HMN to one greater than the highest message header actually downloaded. The reason for the difference is that when the Q and H commands are used, CompuServe includes the range of message numbers that were available for the scan as part of the information it downloads. In the case of the J command, however, this range is not included. Therefore WinAto determines the highest message number downloaded and uses it. A ³A!ÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿConverting Outgoing Messages LogBAB%€€* €‚€ÿConverting ATO .FIL Files]B$€€* Ȁ‚‚ÿATO saves outgoing prepared messages in forum files that have the extension .FIL. WinAto saves those messages to a forum file ending in P.ATO. The WinAto file saves the messages in the same format that ATO uses to store it's outgoing messages. This provides the ability to view the saved prepared messages in the same manner as viewing the outgoing messages that have not been sent. It also provides the ability to delete messages from the Ûšfile, print messages, edit and/or resend messages and forward previously sent messages to other recipients. This capability is not available in ATO itself.ñˍñ&€€* Ȁ‚‚‚‚ÿIt is not necessary to convert the existing .FIL files if you do not wish to view them with WinAto.To convert existing .FIL files, select Convert Outgoing Logs from the Setup menu. A confirmation box will display. Select OK to convert the files. WinAto will convert all forum .FIL files for the forums that are in the current forum list. It does not convert any existing .FIL files for forums that are not in the forum list. When the conversion has been completed, WinAto will display a message indicating completion. The file extensions of the original .FIL files are changed to .FLX. If any ...P.ATO files already exist, the converted messages will be appended to any existing messages in the file..
ñ.!Ö ÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿOther Options6.6%€€* €‚€ÿOther Options²6²%€€* Ȁ‚‚‚ÿThe Other options dialog box provides the ability to set some miscellaneous options available in WinAto. These parameters are optional.A²A"€€* €‚ÿNo. of read requests to packãA#€€* Ȁ‚ÿThis parameter indicates to WinAto how many read message requests to pack on a single input line to Compuserve when requesting the download of forum messages. Packed requests are processed faster than single requests per line, thereby saving on connect time. The default value is to pack seven read requests per line. The reason for this parameter is that if CIS finds that a requested message has already been purged, it returns an error indication and then ignores any remaining requests on the line. If you go on-line to download the requested messages soon after downloading the headers, you should not have a problem with the messages having been purged in the interim. However, if you wait to go back on-line for a significant length ±$ò$›#of time, you should probably set this parameter to 1. The values 1 to 7 are valid. An entry of zero or a value in excess of zero will cause the default to be used. This option sets the "RdPack" parameter in the general section of winato.ini.&&#€€* Ȁ‚ÿC!&C"€€* €‚ÿUse fixed font in message read<C<$€€* Ȁ‚‚ÿWhen selected, this option causes WinAto to set the font in the Read Messages dialog box to a fixed font. The default is to set the font to a variable font to fit more characters on a line. This option sets the "fixed_on_read" parameter in the general section of winato.ini.D"<D"€€* €‚ÿDisplay auto list going on-lineL(DL$€€* Ȁ‚‚ÿWhen selected, this option causes WinAto to display the Auto List dialog box prior to going on line to execute an autopass. This displays the current auto list settings and allows the auto list to be modified. This option sets the "showalist" parameter in the general section of winato.ini.<L<"€€* €‚ÿNo update of 'N' in HMNüÙ<ü#€€* Ȁ‚ÿWhen selected, this option causes WinAto to bypass the update of the high message number for a forum if the current setting is 'N'. This option sets the "NoNupdate" parameter in the general section of winato.ini.=ü=!¿ÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿSwapping the Definition File===%€€* €‚€ÿSwap Definition FileÓ¯=ß$€€* Ȁ‚‚ÿThe swap definition file command provides the ability to save and load ATO definition files. The autosig.dfn file is used by ATO and WinAto to save the host and forum options selected by the user. The number of forums which may be defined at any time is limited to twenty four by ATO. The ability to save and load definition files allows you to define greater than twenty four forums, however, the ability must be used with care. If a forum exists is more than one definition file, the infor®-ë-q-mation stored on the forum in one file will not be updated in the second file. Prior to loading a new definition file, you should save the current definition file to retain it's settings.fBßf$€€* Ȁ‚‚ÿThe Swap definition File dialog box contains a list of the currently defined definition files, excluding the active definition file, autosig.dfn. To the right of the file list there are four buttons. The Load button is used to copy the currently selected definition file over the current autosig.dfn file. The Save button is used to overwrite the currently selected file with the current contents of the autosig.dfn file. The Save As button is used to copy the current autosig.dfn file to a new file. The Cancel button is used to exit the dialog box without any action.;f;!} ÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿRearranging the Forum ListC;C%€€* €‚€ÿRearranging the Forum List`:C`&€€* Ȁ‚‚‚‚ÿThe Rearrange command from the Forums menu provides the ability to reorder the forum list. The list may be sorted alphabetically, and/or, individual forums may be moved within the list. The order of the forum list dictates the order in which the forums are visited on an autopass.When the Rearrange command is selected from the Forums menu, a dialog box is displayed that presents the forum list with the forums in the order in which they currently occur in the definition file. To the right of the forum list there are six buttons which may be used as follows:*`6&€€* Ȁ‚‚‚‚ÿThe Sort button may be used to sort the forum list into alphabetical order.The Cut button may be used to delete the selected forum. The forum will be deleted from the list and the forum name will be displayed below the Cut button. Until the cut forum has been pasted back into the list, the Cut button and the Save button will both be inactive (grayed). Note: The Cut function can not be used to delete a forum from the forum list. To delete a forum, ®3603you must use the Delete function from the Forums menu.ز6Ø&€€* Ȁ‚‚‚‚ÿThe Paste Above button may be used to paste the previously cut forum above the currently selected forum.

  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: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
