While programming internal BBS
door conversion routines for
Citadel, I'd often found myself wanting a central location for door/dropfile
descriptions. I've wasted many hours downloading and looking through many BBS
programs hoping to find descriptions, often finding that the rare few that are
there are incomplete or superseded. (And even these days, many Internet
sites that might have this info require a password for some reason.)
So I've designed this site as a central repository for programmers to know
what the latest formats are, both for creating and reading the formats. I
also hope that it can be a call to action for people with formats not listed
here to send them over for everyone's benefit.
The following are dropfiles that I can find any documentation for.
DOOR32.SYS (offsite) New!
DROPFILE.001 (offsite) New!
XTERN.DAT and MODUSER.DAT
What I'd like
If you can add to my present documentation (other formats, more or corrected
explanations), please leave me mail.
Other formats can be directly sent (please include
references/citations and let me know if you want credit for the submission).
If you want an explanation change, please include:
Please feel free to submit as many changes as you like. Please also submit
any comments (typos, grammar, formatting, layout, content) on any of
my pages at any time, positive or negative (trash on it/them if you like). I
thrive on feedback.
- The name of the dropfile.
- The explanation as it currently stands (so I can find it).
- The explanation as it should read.
