Contents of the TPCNEW.DOC file
As we all know, the ALLFILES.LST and CATALOG.LST files from The
Programmer's Corner BBS have grown to monster size (almost
20,000 entries). What a great board!
The size of the CATALOG.LST file created a couple of problems
for me. First I had to replace my 2400 bps modem with a 14,400
bps modem because the 1 hour limit was not enough time to
download the file. The second problem was there was no easy way
to determine what was new in the CATALOG.LST file. TPCNEW
answers the "what's new" need.
The TPCNEW.EXE program reads the CATALOG.LST file from The
Programmer's Corner BBS and writes a new file named TPCNEW.LST.
The TPCNEW.LST file contains section titles and file description
entries with dates that are no more than about 3 months older
than the file date of the CATALOG.LST file.
TPCNEW [path\]catalog.lst [path\]tpcnew.lst
The TPCNEW.ZIP file contains:
TPCNEW.PAS The Borland Pascal Version 7.0 source code
TPCNEW.EXE The executable
