ZiffPlus Procomm Plus 2.0 Aspect (tm) Script
Welcome to ZiffPlus! This collection of files will help automate
your online time with ZiffNet while using PCPLUS 2.0. At present
there are five files in the set. Their names and descriptions are:
README .DOC - This ReadMe file
ZIFFPLUS.DOC - Full documentation for using ZiffPlus
ZIFFPLUS.ASX - The compiled PCPLUS 2.0 script file
ZIFFPLUS.ASP - The Source PLPLUS script file
ZP .BAT - Runs ZiffPlus
You do not need to compile ZIFFPLUS.ASP unless you are making
detailed program changes, since the compiled version (.ASX) is
present. Due to the size of ZiffPlus, you must use the large model
compiler. (See ZIFFPLUS.DOC for details.) ZiffPlus maintains a
configuration file called ZIFF.CFG. You should consider making a
separate directory for ZiffPlus and place all of the ZiffPlus files
in it. (Example: C:\ZP).
Running ZiffPlus from ZP.BAT
For ZiffPlus to work correctly with Procomm Plus, you must set the
two environment variables PCPLUS and ZIFFPLUS. PCPLUS should be
set to the directory which contains Procomm Plus. The variable
ZIFFPLUS should be set to the directory in which you've stored the
ZiffPlus files. Use the DOS command SET in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file
to set the correct value for both of these.
To run ZiffPlus from any directory using the ZP batch file, you
must either locate the ZiffPlus directory in your path; copy the
file ZP.BAT to a directory already in your path; include the
ZiffPlus drive\path in the DOS command to start ZP.BAT; or locate
ZP.BAT in the default directory. As long as the PCPLUS and
ZIFFPLUS environment variables are set, the default directory can
be anywhere in your system. If you keep a BATCH file directory in
your path, it would be the ideal location for ZP.BAT to reside.
The Computer Shopper Forum is expected to go online late October.

Magazine's Utilities and Tips forum's (GO ZNT:UTILFORUM) Section 11,
