Contents of the SCRIPT.TXT file


This file contains two scripts, written in the script language that
comes with the Logicomm communications program for OS/2. Both scripts were
written for my own use, and I run them regularly under IBM OS/2 ver 1.1 on
a generic 8 mhz clone 80286 with 3 mg. ram.

I use Logicomm with PC Pursuit, a packet switching network service
which charges a flat rate for connections across the entire USA. The price
is right, but the service is complicated in actual use. The is reflected in
these scripts.

There are four steps to successfully connecting with a host BBS via
(1) connect with your local PCP node (a phone number which
ideally is a local call for you.
- wait for connection
(2) give the hunt sequence and ID your terminal
- wait for the "@" prompt
(3) connect with the PCP outdial, using a code for the city,
your user ID, and your password.
- wait for the "connect 1200" signal
(4) transmit a Hayes AT dial command with the host BBS phone
number following it.
- wait for connection

Things can, and do, go wrong at each stage of this procedure, but
even when things go right, you are frequently confronted with busy signals
and these are best handled by program loops that exit after a certain number
of attempts at each point where a connect signal is expected.

The file logiscrp.scr contains the ASCII source code for a script that
I use to dial a number of BBS's in Orange County, California. This script is
run as a macro, using the key combination in terminal mode. The script
creates its own menu, and is handier for me than the dialing directory.

The file describ.scr contains the ASCII source code that is run from
the Logicomm Dialing Directory, rather than as a macro.

If you do not use PCP, than the script language can be considerably
simplified, as is seen in the file local.scr, which is run as a macro and
simply dials the number selected from the menu.

If you have any questions, leave me a message on the Describe BBS,
or Compuserve, where my ID is 72261,347.
