• Message area counts

    From poindexter FORTRAN@VERT/REALITY to All on Tuesday, April 30, 2019 18:39:00
    Not sure where to post this, so here goes.

    I have a limit of 10,000 messages on my BBS, and when I list the areas that are at the limit, the columns are off:


    [1] alt.2600 250
    [2] alt.2600.hackers 234
    [3] alt.alt.alt.alt.alt 354
    [4] alt.bbs 236
    [5] alt.bbs.ads 5269
    [6] alt.battlestar-galactica 10000
    [7] alt.coffee 10000
    [8] alt.religion.subgenius 160
    [9] alt.slack 10000
    [10] alt.support.diet.low-carb 28
    [11] alt.conspiracy 6307

    Maybe check the SubLstFmt line of your ctrl/text.dat file? The current default value accomodates 5 digits:
    "\1n\1g[\1h%u\1n\1g] %-40s %12s \1h%5u\r\n" 126 SubLstFmt

    I have a limit of 10,000 messages on my BBS, and when I list the areas that are at the limit, the columns are off:

    I think I read somewhere on the wiki about the utility, but I haven't used it yet, so I'll ask... what utility are you using to
    generate that list?

    Nevermind, actually, I thought what you'd posted may have come from a utility's output, not the listing from the board itself. I
    do feel a little derpy. ;-)

    Yep, that was from a list of message areas from the BBS, and DM's suggestion of changing text.dat did the trick.
