Synchronet now requires the libarchive development package (e.g. libarchive-dev on Debian-based Linux distros, libarchive.org for more info) to build successfully.

      More use of get_index() if available, to help speed things up a bit.  Also, made a further optimization: when checking a sub-board if it has polls, check in reverse rather than forward.  Since polls & voting is a relatively recent feature in Synchronet, hopefully it should finish faster going in reverse.

      SlyVote v1.02: Now uses the new get_index() messagebase function, if available, for getting the message index objects when determining if a sub-board has polls (in the subBoardHasPolls() function).  get_index() is faster than iterating through all messages and calling get_msg_index() for each message.

      MsgBase.put_msg_header() now updates the internal (smbmsg_t) representation · 53c677c3
      rswindell authored
      of the message header so that functions that need it (e.g. bbs.show_msg_header)
      don't use/show stale data. This change requires the updated smb_copymsgmem()
      which clear/sets message convenience pointers upon copying hfields from one
      message header to another.

      smb_copymsgmem() fix: · 3debb32c
      rswindell authored
      Did not clear/set convenience pointers (e.g. msg.subj), so they would point
      to the source message hfield_dat buffers which may be freed or garbage.
      Apparently nothing that used smb_copymsgmem() used the convenience pointers
      (before now), so it hasn't been a problem before now. <shrug>
      It became a problem becaue I'm going to use this function in js_put_msg_header
      to fix a problem where the underlying smbmsg_t representation is not current
      even after MsgBase.put_msg_header() is used.

      New MsgBase method: get_index() - returns an array of all message index records · 75417a26
      rswindell authored
      (objects, in the same format as returned by the get_mgs_index() method)
      much faster than iterating through a loop, calling the get_msg_index() method
      for each message. If you want to load messages (e.g. headers, text), filtering
      by criteria found in the message index (attributes, to/from user, subject CRC)
      loading a list of indexes and filtering before calling get_msg_header() for the
      selected messages is much faster than previously available MsgBase object
      methods (e.g. get_all_msg_headers()). If you don't need to filter the loaded
      messages (you really want *all* message headers), then get_index() is of no
      benefit to you, the script-writer. This is most useful for the "mail" msgbase
      where selective loading of messages is more common.

      There appears to be a few places in this file that treat ^A^A as a literal · 0a5ea2e4
      rswindell authored
      Ctrl-A (ASCII 1) char. This is wrong. A literal Ctrl-A sequence is ^AA.
      I'm only addressing one of those instances in this commit since it *also*
      appears to be an off-by-one bug where it's treating *all* Ctrl-A sequences as
      though they were ^AA - so just #ifdef'ing out until Deuce takes a look at this.

      New JS bbs methods: · b4d31140
      rswindell authored
      - bbs.show_msg()
      - bbs.show_msg_header()
      Re-worked the JS bbs.netmail() implementation
      sbbs::show_msg(), show_msghdr(), msgtotxt() now take an smb_t* argument
      (don't use the pseudo-global 'smb' in these functions any longer)
      sbbs_t::putmsg() and JS console.putmsg() now accept an optional orig_columns
      argument to specify the original column width of a text for intelligent
      re-word-wrapping (e.g. as taken from a message header field). Previously, the
      original-column value was hard-coded to 80 columns (technically, 79).
      sbbs_t::show_msghdr() no longer sends a CRLF if the cursor is already at the
      top-of-screen (TOS).
      sbbs_t::show_msg() now uses the stored "columns" msg header fields to pass to
      putmsg() to intelligently re-word-wrap message bodies for display.
      sbbs_t::show_msg() and msgtotxt() return bool now instead of void.
      JS MsgBase.get_all_msg_headers() now supports an optional "expand_fields"
      argument (defaults to true). I contemplated just getting rid of the (few)
      expanding header fields (more like default-value-header fields, like 'id'), but
      decided against it, at least for now.
      JS MsgBase.put_msg_header(), the "number_or_offset" argument is optional and
      not needed if a header object argument is provided. Make this clear in this JS
      docs for this method
      
      Note:
      I sat on this commit for a while because I noticed occasional errors like this:
          Node 1 <Digital Man> !ERROR 2 (No such file or directory) (WinError 0) in
          readmsgs.cpp line 217 (sbbs_t::loadposts) locking
          "path/to/sub" access=-100 info=smb_locksmbhdr msgbase not open
      started cropping up after introducing these changes and which I never
      root-caused. But after a clean-build and waiting a week, I haven't seen it
      again, so hopefully it was just a incomplete rebuild issue and not a new bug.

      SlyVote version 1.01: Changed "voting area" verbage to "sub-board".  Updated the main screen to show the number of polls the user has voted on & the number remaining.  Updated the sub-board choosing to allow choosing the message group first, and load the sub-board information (such as whether each sub-board has polls) only when needed, rather than loading all the configured sub-boards, to help cut down the loading time when choosing a sub-board.

      Use default calling convention (__cdecl) for DLL funcs in Borland builds. · bf82a889
      rswindell authored
      Fix age-old bug with Borland/C++Builder built executables (Windows):
      to achieve compatibility with  the default __cdecl symbol naming rules of
      Visual C++, we were using __stdcall convention for DLL functions when
      building code with Borland/C++Builder tools and using the default (__cdecl)
      convention when building with Microsoft (Visual C++) tools. Although this
      allowed symbols to be located when linking, the calling convention mismatch
      caused a stack cleanup issue that very rarely manifested itself in a bug
      (e.g. exception of some kind in sbbsctrl.exe, usually). Mismatching
      the calling conventions was unintentional (I thought the default for MSVC
      DLL functions was __stdcall) - but since the calls to MSVC-Built DLL functions
      worked 99% of the time, I didn't realize there was an underlying issue. So I
      now work-around the DLL symbol naming mismatch using a command-line option (-a)
      passed to implib in src/sbbs3/ctrl/makelibs.bat
      
      I had previously worked-around exceptions when calling MSVC DLL functions in
      sbbsctrl.exe by calling the problematic DLL functions from a timer tick handler
      rather than a user control (e.g. button) event handler. Those work-arounds can
      now be removed.
      
      The erroneous "DLLCALL" definition design pattern was replicated (copy/pasted)
      to many other projects' header files in cvs.synchro.net. In the future, we may
      want to just remove all instances of *CALL since they now serve no purpose and
      appear as useless "Kruft" (but do allow us to more-easily globally change DLL
      function calling conventions if/when necessary in the future).

      Use a lock file (sbbslist.json.lock) to protect the database (sbbslist.json) · 806068b2

      from corruption during concurrent operations. Although the list file is not
      open shareable, I was observing corruption on Vertrauen when multiple sbbslist
      tasks (e.g. verification and maintenance) were running concurrently on
      different systems. The .lock file method is crude, but is working to protect
      the list from concurrent opens of any kind (read or write).
