Pressing allows you to insert a menu command or sub-menu. A menu command executes DOS commands and application programs. A sub-menu pops up another window that may contain more menu commands or other Sub-Menus.

First enter the command or sub-menu title to appear in the window and press . To retrieve previously deleted commands or sub-menus, press a second time then select the title to retrieve from the paste buffer.

Next select either "Sub-menu" or "Command" as appropriate. If you select "Sub-Menu" you are done. If you select "Command" a text editor appears to enter the DOS batch file commands to execute for this menu command.PN° Editing Text

"Intelligent Command Filtering" is the THE MOST POWERFUL FEATURE of the AutoPilott Menu System and can save the System Manager hours of time on a network.

AutoPilott will analyze the command text for each command, and build a list of "File Search Restrictions". This list will consist of all of the commands where DOS will need to find the file and execute it. This list will not include DOS internal command, labels, batch commands, etc. If any of the commands in the File Search Restrictions List do not exist while AutoPilott is executed in User Mode, then the command will be filtered out of the user's menu. In Maintenance Mode, commands that would be filtered will be marked with an asterisk (*).

Intelligent Command Filtering is most useful in a network environment. This will significantly reduce the amount of time required to integrate local hard drives and network drives where access rights may vary or applications may not be installed.
(more on the next page) f PNàThe reasons why a command in the File Search Restrictions list may not actualy exist are as follows:

1. The user has insufficient access rights to see the program files.

2. The drive where the program files are installed does not exist for this user or workstation.

3. The program files were never installed or were deleted.

4. The command text for this option includes a syntax mistake.

For any of the above reasons, the command option will be filtered out of the users menu.

You may enter the File Search Restictions list and modify, add or delete commands that appear to more fully customize your menu.


 ><. Modifying Commands or Sub-menus

Pressing allows you to modify a menu command's title and command text or a sub-menu's title. A menu command executes DOS commands and application programs. A sub-menu pops up another window that may contain more menu commands or other Sub-Menus.

First edit the command or sub-menu title to appear in the window and press .

If you are modifying a sub-menu you are done. If you are modifying a command the text editor appears to edit the DOS batch file commands to execute for this menu command.2
0© Deleting Commands or Sub-menus

Pressing allows you to delete menu commands or sub-menus. Optionaly use the mark key to mark several items for deletion, then press to delete them.

Select "Yes" to delete or "No" to cancel.

NOTE: Deleted commands or sub-menus are kept in a paste buffer until you exit AutoPilott or execute a menu command. Press twice to retrieve items in the paste buffer. 75The 'paste buffer' contains commands and sub-menus that have been deleted in the current session. Anything in the paste buffer may be 'pasted' into the current window.

If you execute a command or exit AutoPilott, the contents of the paste buffer will be lost forever.

  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/
