      Update display/menu file selection logic based current terminal capabilities. · 68e52292
      rswindell authored
      Newly supported files: text/menu/*.msg (higher priority than .asc when the
      terminal supports IBM extened ASCII, aka CP437). These are the same format
      as .asc files (and supported more readily by PabloDraw).
      Newly supported files: text/menu/*.seq - native PETSCII files for PETSCII
      terminals only. Support in the underlying putmsg() function is still
      pending.
      Also, the text/*.msg files now supports alternative file formats for
      RIP/ANSI/PETSCII, if the files exist.
      WIP menu support removal.
      The new menu/display file selection priority will be detailed on
      wiki.synchro.net, but rest assured, it's backwards compatible with
      the previous/old priority with the exception of the removal of WIP support
      and HTML support.

      The big PETSCII commit: · 31303187
      rswindell authored
      So Omegix recently asked in the Synchronet Discussion group whether or not
      a PETSCII (Commodore) terminal could be used to access his Synchronet BBS.
      Now, the answer is "Yes". :-)
      The major issues addressed:
      
      - detecting a PETSCII terminal, solved by assigning specific (configurable):
        TCP ports to be used for incoming PETSCII connections, by default:
        port 64 is for 40-column PETSCII and port 128 is for 80-column PETSCII,
        but if the terminal sends a Telnet Window Size reply (e.g. SyncTERM), then
        either size terminal should fine on either port.
        The port numbers are configurable in the [BBS] section of your sbbs.ini
        file using the new keys: PET40Port (default value: 64) and PET80Port
        (default value: 128). Having these keys set doesn't make make the terminal
        server listen on that additional port - you'll need to add more
        IP:port combinations to one of Interfaces values, example:
          TelnetInterface=71.95.196.34,71.95.196.34:64,71.95.196.34:128
        And you don't have to use Telnet for the PETSCII connections - you could use
        RLogin or SSH instead (or in addition).
      
      - support for terminal widths < 80 columns:
        This was achieved through a combination of text.dat changes (numerous),
        new Ctrl-A and @-codes and new optional terminal-width-specific menu files
        (e.g. text/menu/main.40col.asc)
        A side effect of these changes is actually better support for terminals
        *wider* than 80 columns as well!
      
      - support for terminals that don't expand tabs to spaces (e.g. PETSCII):
        The terminal server now handles tab expansion with a run-time settable
        tab-size (default size: 8)
      
      - conditional access based on PETSCII (or small) terminal use (or not):
        + New PETSCII ARS keyword (boolean)
        + New COLS and ROWS ARS keywords (for terminal width and height requirements)
        + New TERM (string) ARS keyword
      
      New @-codes:
        - WORDWRAP, when placed at the top of a file, enables auto-wordwrap for
                    lines longer than the terminal width
        - CENTER, the text following before an end of line will be displayed centered
                  on the terminal (whatever the width, in columns)
        - CLEAR, like CLS, except it ignores (doesn't display) a CRLF that follows
        - COLS, current number of terminal columns (width)
        - ROWS, current number of terminal rows (height)
        - TERM, the auto-detected or reported terminal type (e.g. ANSI, TTY, etc.)
        - SYSONLY, toggles "echo" (display) off/back-on for non-sysops
                  similar to the Ctrl-A( and ) codes, but more convenient to use
                  (and PabloDraw won't strip the @-code from the file like it does
                   with Ctrl-A codes it doesn't support)
      
      New Ctrl-A codes:
        - \ conditional new-line/continuation when the terminal width is < 80 cols
            prints the new text.dat string LongLineContinuationPrefix
      
      yesno() will now return true if passed a blank string.
      noyes() will now return false if passed a blank string.
      getstr()'s input length limiting based on terminal width is more broadly
                 applied now (not just when using the K_LINE mode flag).
      
      New JS bbs object method: menu_exists(<base_filename>) returns Boolean
      New JS console object property: tabstop (Number)
      New JS console object methods: getbyte() and putbyte() to recv/send raw byte
          value with (very little) interpretation/intervention by the terminal server
      New JS console object method: creturn() - performs a carriage return
          (or equivalent)
      New JS (and C) printfile() mode flag: P_TRUNCATE, causes long lines to be
          truncated, rather than displaying causing a line-wrap.
      
      New text.dat strings:
        - NoAccessTerminal (for ARS check failures)
        - LongLineContinuationPrefix (for breaking long lines for 40col terminals)
        - Scanning (replaces a previously hard-coded "Scanning" string)
        - Done (replaces a previusly hard-coded "Done")
        - Scanned  (when finished scannning, clears the progress bar)
