• exec_xtrn issues..

    From Bill McGarrity@VERT/TEQUILAM to digital man on Fri Jan 19 19:38:43 2018
    Hiya Rob...

    Have you had a chance to look into my issue with using the exec_xtrn command
    in the default.src?

    I've gone over the entry about 10 times making sure I have typed it
    correctly, compiled it where baja sends no warning message.

    Thanks..

    I don't see the thread in here. You asked in a different message area?

    Anyway, if you can copy/paste SCFG setup screen for the external program you're trying to execute and then the revelant Baja source line, that might help identify the problem.

    line, that might help identify the problem.

    OK... here ya go...

    Name FTN Address Lookup
    Internal Code FTNADDRE
    Start-up Directory ../xtrn/ftn
    Command Line FNLSCAN -Cfnlscan.cfg -D%F
    Clean-up Command Line
    Execution Cost None
    Access Requirements
    Execution Requirements
    Multiple Concurrent Users Yes
    Intercept I/O No
    Native Executable No
    Use Shell to Execute Yes
    Modify User Data No
    Execute on Event No
    Pause After Execution No
    BBS Drop File Type GAP DOOR.SYS
    Place Drop File In Node Directory


    And the command line I'm using in the default.src under the E-mail sections is:

    cmdkey L
    exec_xtrn "FTNADDRE"

    end_cmd

    Now if I go the external section and choose the door entry it works fine. Just not when I choose 'L' in the Mail Section.

    Thanks..

    What does happen when you hit 'L' in the mail section? If you had a debug "print" line, do you see the output? You are re-compiling default.src with Baja?

    You could try removing the quotes around the internal-code (just: exec_xtrn FTNADDRE) as well, though I think it should work either way.

    can you post it temporarily on your website or on pastebin?
    we could probably tell in a few seconds if we saw the entire thing.

    Now if I go the external section and choose the door entry it works fine. Just not when I choose 'L' in the Mail Section.

    What does happen when you hit 'L' in the mail section? If you had a
    debug "print" line, do you see the output? You are re-compiling default.src with Baja?

    Nothing happens when I hit L in the mail secion. Yes, I have re-compiled and I did see that secion when I used the -d option. I've sent you over the entire debug log in a seperate netmail.


    You could try removing the quotes around the internal-code (just: exec_xtrn FTNADDRE) as well, though I think it should work either way.

    I did both. Same thing.

    I did notice on the new JSEXEC and update.js it does 'resolve labels' when I made a change previously while updating any js files in the cvs. It may have done it in previous versions but the last time I made any changes to the default.src was when you added the /A.

    Thanks..

    Post what? The debug log? I've already sent that over to DM.

    See these line in default.src:

    print "\r\nE-mail: "
    getcmd ?SRFNUKQ\r
    logkey

    Did you add "L" to the list of cmd keys? If not, then that key won't be accepted or processed.

    I'm not sure what "debug log" you're referring to. If you're still having problems let me know and I'll take a look-see when I get back home (I'm outta town right now).

    Don't worry about it. I just took a screen shot of the entire baja process and zipped it up for you. Yopu can delete it.

    Thanks again...
