• A few variables in Baja

    From Tegularius@VERT to All on Tue Oct 4 01:58:00 2005
    DEFAULT.SRC displays the message group and sub-board in a prompt using @GRP@ and @SN@. There are similar codes in the file-area prompt.

    What if I need a Baja program to know these values and branch accordingly?
    Can I access them other than just displaying them? I don't see anything in
    the system variables that provides them.

    Yes there is:

    Use the same format, of course always use CAPS and bracket with percent signs.

    I recently answered this question here on DOVE-Net (in the Synchronet JavaScript conference?). The answer is: Yes, use the Baja COMPARE_ARS function.
