    It works now from the user s home directory where it usually is run. You have to copy the /usr/local/share/tlf/logcfg.dat to your home directory or folder.

    It works now from the user's home directory where it usually is run.

    You have to copy the /usr/local/share/tlf/logcfg.dat to your home directory or folder.

    Then when you run tlf it will take the configuration from logcfg.dat in your ~ folder.

    As the logcfg.dat file is currently written you will not log into the dx spot network but if you edit the file you can.  You can also change the telnet address and use your favorite network.

    Nice job as always Thomas!  A fine program.

    I enclose a quick deb file for those who would rather install a deb file.

    A new TLF bug fix release is available at


    It mainly fixes the not working CLUSTERLOGIN reported by David N1EA and
    Martin OK1RR.

    Old tlf-1.1.2 contained a bug in the parsing logic for logcfg.dat and
    rules files. It failed to recognize some keywords if there was a
    similar one with the same beginning (e.g. CLUSTERLOGIN got not
    recognized as there is also a CLUSTER keyword).
    Furthermore it complained about empty lines in that files with:
    'Keyword '' not supported'.

    Bug fixes:
        - Implemented new and much more robust parsing logic for keywords.
          Reworked and rechecked also all parameter handling to allow a
          better failure handling.
        - tlf no longer complains about empty lines in config files.
        - Add support for '~' expansion for '-f' command line switch.
          (Thanks N1EA). Something like 'tlf -f~/mydir/logcfg.dat' is
          working now.
        - Add description of reset of CW bandwidth during band switch and
          CWBANDWIDTH= keyword to man page.

    Furthermore a some cleanup and internal changes are made to simplify
    future maintenance, e.g.:
        - Cleanup of unused variables and comments.
        - Fix configure-script to abort if no ncurses lib is installed.
        - Rename 'configure.in' into 'configure.ac' as former will be no
          longer accepted by automake-1.13

    Please have a thorough check how your logcfg.dat and rule files are
    accepted. While I did a thorough check that all parameters will be
    recognized now there may be some subtle changes I did not found yet.

    Please report back how it goes.
