    OK. let's talk Baja:


    Excerpt from Default.scr.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    cmdkey /U
    userlist_all
    end_cmd

    cmdkey X
    xtrn_section
    end_cmd

    cmdkey Z
    print "\r\nContinuous New Message Scan\r\n"
    msg_cont_scan
    end_cmd

    cmdkey /Z
    msg_cont_scan_all
    end_cmd


    Where would I find the source code for userlist_all or xtrn_section or msg_cont_scan etc?

    How much (if at all) can those sections be altered? Im not a 'C'
    programmer but more like a middlen batch programmer. I can follow the
    logic (mostly) of a src file but writing it isn't likely. I can cut and
    paste from manuals and your messages but I lack the fundamental
    understanding to write code, yet.

    Any discussion on this topic? Have many of you altered your default.src
    to any extant?

    The Synchronet source files. I do believe that all those functions are part of sbbs.exe.
    What is it you are trying to do?

    Well the talamasca is very heavily modified. I started with Rob original default.src and with cut and paste from a few others, and repeated tweaks it has ended up where it is. I do belive I sent you a copy of the src did I not?

    The editing/making of BAja files, and command modules isn't that hard. All of these ID I believe are in the .INC files (SBBSDEFS.INC includes all the INC files except the FILE_IO.INC) which are located in your ..\CTRL dir. I've never tried changeing these, but that's where I'd look first.

    Yes. I have that file and refer to it when ever I need an example of
    some good programming. However it isn't commented on as you know what
    your doing. On the other hand... I need comments to find the logic. Like
    I said I am not a programmer but baja src files are rather easy to
    follow.

    I have another default.src file that starts a donators menu from the
    main screen using a period as the hot key.

    The little bit of back and forth over the bulletin program showed me
    better than the docs could how exec_xtrn works. Sometimes examples plus
    the authors explanation will clear the fog.

    I hope my questions are not _so_ elementary that you find them unworthy.

    And thanks for all you and the others have done so far. (-:
