      The windows version had an import option. It isn't in the current LinBPQ, but will be in the next version.

      I would like to ‘import’ messages/bulletins from ASCII text files which were created by a LinFBB BBS (ZS0MEE) to LinBPQ .. The only way I can see it being done is by a telnet session to LinBPQ .. In FBB one can copy a suitable text file to a directory and on the next minute FBB will ‘suck’ the contents of the text file into its system ..

      But when I do try a telnet session, LinBPQ complains that I must be a BBS !! .. The very first line e.g. “SB SARL @ ZAF $ENG20130224 < ZS0MEE” is what triggers the error message .  Apparently the “<” is the culprit ..

      I can log into LinBPQ with a telnet session but when I try typing ‘[BPQ-$]’ to fool LinBPQ into thinking I am a BBS, LinBPQ isn’t fooled !! …

      Any thoughts on this problem ???
