Basically, this is a file you'd run shortly after you upgraded to a NEW version of CNet Amiga. This file has the ability of comparing the OLD and NEW stock versions of the "bbstext" file and showing you the differences. Beyond this simple premise, your current MODIFIED version bbstext file is also read in during the comparison. When the file finds a difference, it will show you the line in question as it appears in ALL THREE FILES. You then have the ability of choosing from either the OLD, NEW, or your MODified version line, as to which will be written to the FOURTH file, which I refer to as the CONversion file. Additionally, this release version has the ability of going one step further, that being the ability to EDIT one of the given lines BEFORE you write it to the CONversion file. This comes in extremely handy when you see a new line that has changed format, then also notice that it was a line you had previously customized(perhaps in color or formatting of your own). You could then choose to EDIT the NEW line, adding in whatever formatting you thought appropriate. When finished, you'll be shown the edited line and will be asked if it's OK to save the edited line. If you state NO, you'll be shown the same three lines and will be able to proceed along a different path if you so wish it. Once the conversion is completed, the file will ask if you wish your existing bbstext file to be renamed(as it's assumed you called it bbstext). If you DO rename it, you'll additionally be asked if you wish the CONverted version file to be renamed to become the new "bbstext" file. Finally, if it's seen that your MODifid version file existed in your CNET: path, you'll be asked if you wish the file to automatically reload the bbstext file for you. -- Written by Dotoran of Frontiers --
