• tickit updates

    From mark lewis@VERT to digital man on Friday, June 28, 2019 22:35:06
    i'm trying to figure out how to get tickit to do two things like sbbsecho does...

    1. use the define outbound path for the network mail being processed at that time

    2. create/update the defined flo files that sbbsecho works with


    for #1, it seems that tickit uses the outbound written in sbbsecho.ini/Outbound
    instead of one of the ones defined further down in sbbsecho.ini/*/OutboundRoot...

    for #2, tickit always creates/updates a flo file instead of clo/hlo/dlo/ilo as may be defined in echocfg for a specific system... i have only one system set to Hold and all others are Direct... the one gets hlo files while the others all get dlo files... tickit produces flo files for all no matter what else is already there...

    Okay... sounds like a project for someone that uses tickit (i.e. not me). :-)

    hahahaha... i keep getting lost in the code... it has been a little bit since i
    was digging around in there... ok... i'll continue to see what i can smash and break...

    can you describe for me how sbbsecho decides which outbound path to use from the domains section of sbbsecho.ini, please?

    Here's the routine (sbbsecho.c):

    const char* zone_root_outbound(uint16_t zone)
    {
    for(unsigned i = 0; i < cfg.domain_count; i++)
    for(unsigned j = 0; j < cfg.domain_list[i].zone_count; j++)
    if(cfg.domain_list[i].zone_list[j] == zone)
    return cfg.domain_list[i].root;

    return cfg.outbound;
    }

    So if there's an outbound configured for one of the zones in that domain, it uses it. If not, it falls back to the global outbound.

    ahhh! thank you! now to see what i can do to convert that into js and find the place to stuff it in tickit... that'll take me a day or three, i'm sure... thanks!
