• Minute / Second Deduction

    Wondering if anyone knows a quick baja code to subtract a integer value from the users minutes / seconds online -- not minutes in the timebank? I
    tried the SUB function but it doesn't actually SET the users time to the
    value after using the SUB function. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    You should set SCFG->External Programs->External Editors->DCTEdit->Strip FidoNet Kludge lines to "Yes".

    The users time available (left) online is calculated dynamically. It's not stored in some variable that you can modify (via Baja or any other method). There is an "anchor" time-stamp (internally, known as 'starttime'), but it's not currently exposed via Baja or JS.

    There are other ways to deduct time from the user (e.g. the moduser.dat drop file). Perhaps if you gave more details about what you're trying to do, we could give some pointers.

    Digital Man,

    Thank you -- I'll look into that and fix it.

    Thanks for the information -- I wanted to be able to create a program which can deduct a integer amount from the user's online time.

    You can adjust their "minutes" field (time bank) with the minutes line of the moduser.dat drop file (read back in when you select xtrn.dat as the drop file format for an external program), but if the user doesn't have any minutes in their minute bank, it won't have any effect on their time available online.

    I don't see a way, in Baja, to deduct time for a user's available time online any other way.

    Rob,

    Sorry about the delayed response -- been really busy with work, wife and BBS (not in that particular order though <g>).

    Thanks for the information on the user online time -- I think I may not
    be able to do what I was planning on doing using the suggestion you mentioned. Thanks again though.
