My FBB utils

getservinfo [ Linux ] [ README ]
Getservinfo is a simple program which extracts info from the and init.srv files and outputs data in a shell readable form. It's meant to simplify writing servers using shell scripts. 7PREQ, REQFIL, REQDIR and REQZIP are included.
Current version: 0.2
reqlst [ Linux ] [ DOS ] [ Source ] [ README ]
REQLST is a server which enables BBS users to request the messages list. It's meant for TSTHOST and TPK users to allow them to retrieve the list as a compressed message. It has a powerful filter to reduce the size of the messages list and thus the download time. A TSTHOST macro to automate the process is included.
Current version: 2.02

RETMAIL returns local messages for unknown users and messages which are about to expire before EPURMESS deletes them.
Current version: 2.0
chkfwd [ Linux ] [ DOS ] [ Source ] [ README ]
CHKFWD informs the sysop about msgs which are about to be returned by EPURMESS because they aren't correctly routed. It's meant to avoid msgs slipping through if for some reason the sysop forgot to take care of the route after he got an "UNKNOWN ROUTE" or "PING-PONG" msg from SYSTEM.
Current version: 1.0
