    From Bigjoe@VERT to All on Thu Jan 27 20:21:00 2005
    Well, I been trying to find out my when I add credits to a users account in a baja script. This is what happens


    I want to add 1000 credits and for some reason it adds 1,024,000 credits to the users account, and not just 1000 like I wanted, any one have any ideas about whats gong on.


    Thanks

    Joe

    I think baja.html pretty much spells it out:

    ADJUST_USER_CREDITS <#>
    args: adj
    ------------------------
    This function is used to add or subtract credits from the current user. The 'adj' argument must be either a positive or negative number (in Kilobytes). Example, to subtract 100K in credits from the current user:
    ADJUST_USER_CREDITS -100

    If you want finer adjustment of user creditss (not in Kilobyte increments), you'll need to use another method (JS or moduser.dat or something).

    1,024,000 is 1,000K. Lookit:

    ADJUST_USER_CREDITS <#>
    args: adj
    ------------------------
    This function is used to add or subtract credits from the current
    user. The 'adj' argument must be either a positive or negative number
    (in Kilobytes). Example, to subtract 100K in credits from the current
    user:

    ADJUST_USER_CREDITS -100


    Notice the "(in Kilobytes)" which by the way is *wrong* because you don't measure Credits in bytes, Kilo- or otherwise, but in any event the number
    you specify is in KiloCredits. So you can't add 1,000 but you can add
    1,024 by doing

    ADJUST_USER_CREDITS 1

    Ok, thats why. I thought 100 credit ment 100 credits, not 100k in credits. Thanks. Thats what I needed

    :-)

    Initially, credits only applied to file transfers, so 1 credit = 1 byte (basically). Hence the reference to "kilobytes" in the baja docs.
