The RBBS is the bulletin board system of choice for many IBM PC bulletin boards. It's a large system on four disks and supports the PC-SIG LIBRARY ON CD ROM. RBBS-PC's internal structure is modularized and structured. The program includes a File Management System for directories, additional file exchange protocols, support for managing subscriptions, configurable command letters, multiple uploads on a single command line, new A)nswer and V)erbose ARC list commands, and context-sensitive help. It also can run as a local application on a network, use any field or define a new field to identify callers, and individualize callers having the same ID. The source code is included.

The RBBS is the bulletin board system of choice for many IBM PC bulletin boards. It is a large system on four disks and supports the PC-SIG LIBRARY ON CD ROM. RBBS-PC's internal structure continued to become significantly more modularized and structured. Major enhancements included a File Management System for directories, additional file exchange protocols, support for managing subscriptions, the ability to run as a local application on a network, configurable command letters, the ability to use any field or to define a new field to identify callers, the ability to individuate callers having the same ID, multiple uploads on a single command line, new A)nswer and V)erbose ARC list commands, and context sensitive help.

Additions to version PCKERMIT version 2.0 - 19200 bps support. - Pop-up status window. - Minor Bug fixes. Fixes in version 2.1 - Wrote my own windowing routines to fix the interrupt problems in version 2.0.
DOC file for QMXFER 1.2 Command line parameters : -C Check for a Carrier present, abort if not. -R Receive the file -S Send the file -F name File to be send/received -L COMx Use com port COM1 or COM2 (no colon) -B baud Use baud rate (300/1200/2400/4800/9600) -P x Protocol to use : X = Xmodem C = CRC Xmodem I = Imodem Y = Ymodem & 1K Xmodem G = Ymodem-G -N nnn Node file to show success/fail status msgs. This file has the following format : [FILENAME] [Upload] or [Download] [x = Protocol] (where x is X/C/I/Y/G) [Success] or [Fail] EOF The file will be created in the default directory with the name of [XFER-nnn.DEF] where nnn is 1-3 alphanumeric characters. The -C and -N parameters are optional. The -R and -S parameters are mutually exclusive (only one, but not both) Examples: 1. Use COM1, 1200 baud, Xmodem, Sending file TESTFILE.TXT QMXFER -L COM1 -B 1200 -P X -S -F TESTFILE.TXT 2. Use COM2, 9600 Baud, Ymodem, Receiving file INFILE.DAT QMXFER -L COM2 -B 9600 -P Y -R -F INFILE.DAT Many of the RBBS-PC Sysops have requested that you be able to modify the colors used by QMXFER. There is now a patch area in the code to change the colors as you see fit. Directions: First, copy the QMXFER.COM to QMX.COM so you are not working with the original code. Then enter the following: DEBUG QMX.COM -D 2D70<cr> 4420:2D70 08 43 4F 4C 4F 52 53 20-3E 07 01 07 07 01 3C 1A .COLORS >.....<. (rest of the lines are not important) . . . . Now, the bytes between the > and < are the colors used by QMXFER. Change them and do a W to save the changes. Byte1 (2D79) Window Frame Foreground (0-15) Byte2 (2D7A) Window Frame Background (0-7 ) Byte3 (2D7B) Inner Window Highlight (0-15) Byte4 (2D7C) Inner Window Normal (0-15) Byte5 (2D7D) Inner Window Background (0-7 ) This is a preliminary DOC file that will get expanded in the final release. It is now in release 1.1 and the file has still not been expanded. It you need more information on the protocols, please get a copy of the QMODEM SST 3.0 DOC file. John Friel III The Forbin Project Inc. PO BOX 702 Cedar Falls, IA 50613 319-232-4516 (voice 10am - 6pm) Revision History: 1.0 - First Release for RBBS-PC. 1.1 - Fixes: Removed the "Press any key to continue" when it encountered an error. This resulted in hung BBS systems and thats a NO-NO! Added the Patch area to set colors for the Sysops preferences. 1.2 - Fixes: Fixed a potential problem with filesizes where the code would abort on 0 byte files. There was a potential I/O Error in the same block of code that would generate an error at address $330A. Added Errorlevel return codes if the command line is incorrect and these can be tested by the DOS ERRORLEVEL command in BATCH files.
