THE INPUT FILE: Inventory report, generated by an accounting program

WHAT WE WANT: Copy certain fields into a comma-delimited file so that the
data can then be imported into a spreadsheet. The file must
contain the following fields:

Reference number, Price, Quantity, Part Number, Description

HOW WE DO IT: We copy data from fixed columns, tidy them up, put quotes
around them, then send them to the output file. However,
certain lines must be inspected to ensure that they contain
valid data. For example, if a line contains "Date:" between
columns 1 and 8, it is a header line, not data.

Since the input data for each item is spread over more than
one line, we must also keep a counter (named ITEMCNTR) to
tell us which line we're looking at.

  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/
