9874RE: [BPQ32] LinBPQ BBS 'export'

      Peter, I chatted to John and he came out with version 95 which corrected the problems I had – One can enter upper/lower case for the paths and directory making it more in line with Linux standards …


      I wanted to place all the files into a separate directory, not in LinBPQ’s root – too messy …

      John, In LinBPQ I am trying to get the BBS to export a bulletin to a file in a directory … I get an error ‘Failed to Export File /HOME/LINBPQ/FILES/WW.OUT” … I have created the necessary directories (lower-case) – just didn’t create an empty file (ww.out) …


      In Linux (as you know), paths/filenames are case sensitive … By virtue of the error message showing the path/filename all in upper-case, does this mean LinBPQ is looking for upper-case path and filename(s) ??? .. I can’t go and change to upper-case as it goes against the ‘standard’ and will look odd …
