• Weather door

    From Janis Kracht@1:261/38 to All on Sunday, January 12, 2020 20:51:50
    Hi all,

    Someone hatched the weather door for bbbs I wrote a few years back, and hatched
    in the BBBSUTIL file echo. My system keeps track of duplicate files previously
    hatched, so the file/tick died in my inbound.

    From this tick file:

    Area BBBSUTIL
    Desc A simple weather door for BBBS, by Janis Kracht.
    From 2:5020/1042 [recent hatcher <g>]

    Does anyone see a need for me to rehatch this file? It is available here at this link if anyone needs it:

    http://www.filegate.net/bbbs/bbbsutil/GETWEATH.ZIP

    If there is a pressing need, I could remove the filename from my duplist and rehatch it... Personally I can't imagine anyone would want me to do that but let me know :)

    Take care,
    Janis

    Hey, thank you :)

    What OS release of BBBS does this support?

    It calls Linux's /usr/bin/curl.

    so if you are using another OS, I would think if you put a copy of a curl for your OS in a directory named /usr/bin/ it should work...

    The source is included, so you could also modify that to fit your needs...

    Ok, is it just a shell script or?

    It's written in BBBS's internal programming language... extremely small program :)

    The source, a .bz file, is in the archive... :) I included a compiled version (.bzb) that should run on any bbbs system I think... haven't heard any complaints yet, anyway :)

    Take care,
