v2.26 updated for CNet 4.24g. Also fixes a bug and a quirk. v2.25 is the first "Dotoran" release of the widely acclaimed FPAV. Originally written by Peter M. Klein, this file allows users on your bbs to go one step beyond the normal "E"xtract command. Not only can they view the contents of an archive, but they can now choose to VIEW and/or DOWNLOAD individual files from WITHIN the archive, without having to download the whole thing. For SysOps, there are a plethora of additional features, including the ability to VIEW PICTURES, WATCH ANIMATIONS, LISTEN to MODULES, VIEW IMAGINE objects, Browse AMIGAGUIDE documents, etc. SysOps also have the additional ability to ADD or DELETE files from within the archives. Full documentaion, as well as an external config file are all included, as are many of the smaller utilities needed to use FPAV to it's FULLEST extent! New features since v2.23: -FPAV v2.25 (1st version authored under auspices of Dotoran of Frontiers!) 20 Aug 96 Numerous internal changes made to the code, so as to make it a bit easier for ME to understand what was going on in there. Config settings(variables) moved into an external file, so as to make the main file's size a bit smaller, as well as giving me the chance to more adequately describe what the different options are for. New options include the ability to view the FULL PATH of the files contained within an archive, so one can get a sense of the directory structure used within an archive. Another new option allows you to specify the COLORS used in the main display listing routines. The remainder of the file has new "high intensity" colors hard-coded in as well. The need for trailing SPACES in the various config variables is no longer needed. So use "1 2 3 4", instead of " 1 2 3 4 ", etc. The BBSAD and CRCAD(undocumented 2.23 command) were REMOVED, as they were used to create a data file used with FP-Diz, which is no longer being supported. (These commands MAY come back if Ray decides to do something similar internally with CNet Amiga). An IBM Graphic set was also implemented for those that can take advantage of these graphics, while the standard ===='s will be used for everyone else. Newer error checking routine was implemented with better ability of locating the exact line causing problems. Filenames were slightly changed, so as to drop the ".rexx" from the END of both the "FPAV" and "FPAView" files, as a ".rexx" extension is really only to be used for "straight" ARexx, and not "customized, program specific" ARexx, like that used with the CNet Amiga Professional software. -- Written by Dotoran of Frontiers --
