• Elist Manager

    From John Dovey@4:920/69 to All on Sat May 29 18:06:18 2021
    Hi,
    For those interested, I have created a simple application to create the .ECO files (and rules) for the Elist database.
    This is a first public test, so I would appreciate reports on it's utility and any issues.
    This is the Windows (.Net5) version. A Linux version will follow soon(ish)

    You can download from Google Drive (https://drive.google.com/file/d/134IXsCA5KOmi5Qhgvb8JbJflorzrn6ut/view?usp=sha ring) or from the ELISTMAN file section from http://elgato.synchronetbbs.org:2000 or from logging in via Telnet. The FREQ isn't working yet.

    All the best
    John

    Attempted to use the .4 version but found issues :

    1 Does not offer a location to install
    2 Save a .ECO file but I have no idea where but should be in the current users folder or one predefined during setup.
    3 Having saved the .eco file I cannot get back to look at it without a error report.
    4 On trying to LOAD produces an error box/report.

    Document - Does it give an understanding where the files are found / stored and
    change the default location ?

    OK, that enough for you to get on with :)

    1 Does not offer a location to install

    You can just run it from the folder it's in
    2 Save a .ECO file but I have no idea where but should be in the current users folder or one predefined during setup.

    It saves all files in the same folder as the application

    3 Having saved the .eco file I cannot get back to look at it without a error report.
    That's odd. It should load the info from the <tagname>.ini file. Please could you screenshot the error and mail to me?

    4 On trying to LOAD produces an error box/report.
    Ditto

    Document - Does it give an understanding where the files are found / stored and
    change the default location ?
    Saves files where the EXE file is.
    <tagname>.ini and <tagname>.ECO
    OK, that enough for you to get on with :)
    Yup. Just ran it here and updated my LITRPG echo .ECO file and sent it so we'll see if that generates any errors.

    Hi Vincent,
    Just got a message that the COMOD had issues. Not sure why. FROM, MOD and REPLYTO are all identical. There is no COMOD field in the file.

    I'm guessing that the 20 or so messages in ELIST that look as if they're from me are actually from you testing?

    Yep and I still have not found it despite copying over the MOD addressing to FROM
    and Reply (which is not used but ...)

    For reference note that case in name and address etc are case sensitive.

    For email I could make it all lower case but cannot do the same for Netmail and
    that is down to the sysop and there settings .
