      Add "Disable Local Display" option for doors, parse DOSXTRN.ERR · dc0d401d
      Rob Swindell authored
      New option to disable local screen display for door programs: sets the 'Screen' value appropriately in door.sys or pcboard.sys drop files and on Windows, doesn't create a new console window.
      
      Also, now parsing the DOSXTRN.ERR file created by the latest/greatest dosxtrn.exe when failing to execute the child/DOS program and log the parsed error details (errno value and description), helpful in debugging the reason why a DOS program may not have been successfully executed by DOSXTRN.

      Add "Native" option for QWKnet call-out cmd-lines · bb43c70b
      Rob Swindell authored
      This really shouldn't be necessary to toggle (at least now) on Windows, since we treat all off-line executions as "native", but for *nix, it could make a big difference if trying to invoke a native program or shell script for a QWKnet call-out and it would either fail due to no DOS support or try to executing using Linux-DOSEMU (unless the command's program name was in the global "native program list" configured in SCFG->External Programs).

      Dates in drop files are always MM/DD/YY, never DD/MM/YY · 5f87852d
      Rob Swindell authored
      Previously, if a sysop had set SCFG->System->Toggles->European Date Format (DD/MM/YY) to "Yes", then many of the dates in drop files would have been written in this format. Unfortunately, since most BBS doors and door development kits were written by Americans, MM/DD/YY format is always assumed. So fixed that (using new TM_MONTH macro too).
      
      Also, line 37 ("Event Time") of DOOR.SYS was always 00:00, now it'll be the next event time (in HH:MM format). Unfortunately, that time might be tomorrow or days away and there's no way to represent *that* fact in the DOOR.SYS file format. <shrug>

      Overhaul statistics files · 908a31be
      Rob Swindell authored
      */dsts.dab (daily statistics and running totals) -> */dsts.ini
      */csts.dab (cumulative statistics / log) -> */csts.tab
      
      * dsts.ini now has both daily and total stats for all fields (not just timeon and logons).
      * dsts.ini is now an easily modifiable text file - no longer need dstsedit (here-by deprecated and soon to be deleted)
      * dsts.ini and csts.tab support 64-bit upload/download byte stats and are very extensible for future fields to be added or extended > 32-bit (this was the main inspiration for this overhaul, but it was overdue and already designed for v4, pretty much)
      * csts.tab is a tab-delimited fixed length record format suitable for easy import to a spreadsheet program or parsing with scripts. Each day is a 128-character LF-delimited record with tab-delimited fields of plain ASCII text.
      * All fields except timeon in dsts.ini files are updated immediately and by more non-terminal servers (e.g. post statistics from web UI scripts).
      * New user stats are tracked more than just for "today".
      
      The upgrade of these files is automatic and built-into SBBS.
      
      Still to do: overhaul the slog utility to support the new csts.tab file format.

      Support user credits and transfer stats > 4GB in total · 1cac2c8a
      Rob Swindell authored
      Credits and daily free credits are accurate to the byte up to (a maximum) of 18446744073709551615 (that's 18 Exbibytes - 1).
      
      User's upload and download byte stats are now similarly extended in maximum range, but the accuracy is only "to the byte" for values less than 10,000,000,000. Beyond that value, the accuracy declines, but is generally pretty damn accurate (to 4 decimal places beyond the nearest multiple of a power of 1024), so I don't expect that to be an issue. This method of storing upload/download byte stats allowed me to use the same 10-character user record fields in the user.dat file.
      
      As a side-effect of this enhancements:
      * User and file credit values are now expressed in multiples of powers of 1024 (e.g. 4.0G rather than 4,294,967,296).
      * Free credits per day per security level has now been extended from 32 to 64-bits (to accommodate values >= 4GB).
      * adjustuserrec() now longer takes the record length since we can easily determine that automatically and don't need more "sources of truth" that can be out-of-sync (e.g. the U_CDT field length going from 10 to 20 chars with this change).
      * setting the stage for locale-dependent thousands-separators (e.g. space instead of comma) - currently still hard-coded to comma
      * more/better support for files > 4GB in size (e.g. in the batch download queue)
      * user_t ulong fields changed to either uint32_t or uint64_t - I didn't realize how many long/ulong's remained in the code (which are sometmies 32-bit, sometimes 64-bit) - ugh
      * Steve's ultoac() function renamed to u32toac() and created a C++ wrapper that still uses the old name, for homage

      Remove the last remnants of Win9x/Me support · 717592bc
      Rob Swindell authored
      Allow "FOSSIL Only" as a configuration option for external programs in SCFG. This is a much easier method of disabling the virtual UART support in the Virtual UART/FOSSIL device driver (if/when necessary) than editing the sbbsexec.ini file (which is still supported).

      Allow FOSSIL mode of the Win32 virtual UART/FOSSIL driver to be disabled · 5b36ab9a
      Rob Swindell authored
      When configuring an external program, a Win32 sysop can now choose to *only* enable the virtual UART (and not the FOSSIL driver) feature of the Synchronet virtual UART/FOSSIL driver (dosxtrn.exe/sbbsexec.dll). Some programs (e.g. TradeWars 2) will always use the FOSSIL driver if one is detected and in order to force the use of COM/UART driver for I/O (if that is desired), then one must disable the FOSSIL driver. It's a rare use case, but I can see the potential need.
      
      Renamed the "Intercept I/O" option in SCFG to "I/O Method" and make it clear that "Socket" (for native programs) and "FOSSIL or UART" (for 16-bit DOS programs) is the default method (what was previously identified as "No" I/O Interception).
      
      If a sysop want to disable the virtual UART support (on Win32, e.g. so *only* FOSSIL is available to one or all DOS programs), they do that via their sbbsexec.ini file.

      When searching for text in file descriptions, always search ext desc · f0d253ef
      Rob Swindell authored
      Since users can (and usually do) display extended descriptions in their normal file listings anyway, it makes sense to go ahead and search them for the text (e.g. with the 'F' command from the default command shell File menu/prompt). So the "search/display extended info" prompt has been changed to just "Display extended file info" since it no longer controls whether or not the extended description is searched for the text (it always is). The FL_EXFIND was renamed to FL_EXT and only controls whether the extended info is display (the FL_FIND mode flag, always renamed, must also be specified for a find with extended info).
      
      This closes feature request #285 by Phil (@plt).

      DIZ enhancements: Read/use SAUCE data, support ANSI, increase max 1->4K · 2a8e1c11
      Rob Swindell authored
      Inspired by Blocktronics (and other ANSI art group) packs' FILE_ID.DIZ/ANS files:
      * Support (and prioritize) FILE_ID.ANS
      * Convert ANSI color/attribute sequences in DIZ files to Ctrl-A equivalent (uses SAUCE width and ICE color, if specified)
      * Don't treat DIZ as a series of lines, they're not always nowadays.
      * New putmsg() mode: P_INDENT to print files indented by current column
      * Display full (up to 64-char) filenames in lists when using 132+ column terminal.
      * Use the Author, Group, and Title fields from the SAUCE if present/non-blank
      * 2 new text.dat strings: 301 (FiAuthor) and 302 (FiGroup)
      * Also fix bug with repeated Cost header field on bulk-uploaded files.
      
      I know this'll break the *nix build (sauce.c dependency), but I'll fix that next.

      Restore the user-to-user file transfer feature · bc883458
      Rob Swindell authored
      I forget who it was that said they were still using this feature in v3.18, but here you go, it's working again (the /D and /U commands). I'm not migrating any file sender/recipient info from v3.18, so only files added after upgrading to this will be downloadable from the "user" directory (if you have one).
      
      Something that I never implemented before but noticed is missing is the removal (or dereferencing) of user-to-user files that were sent from/to a user that is then deleted. So that's still a TODO item.

      Allow fine-grained control over JavaScript compiler options via *.ini · 2c7f3bc6
      Rob Swindell authored
      JavaScriptOptions bit-field can be set in sbbs.ini and jsexec.ini to over-ride the default JS compiler options which have been changed from 0 to (options previously only used by JSDoor):
      JIT | METHODJIT | COMPILE_N_GO | PROFILING
      
      * JIT - TraceMonkey
      * METHODJIT - JägerMonkey
      * COMPILE_N_GO - compile-time scope chain resolution of consts
      * PROFILING - Choose between TraceMonkey and JägerMonkey at compile-time based on profiling results
      
      Other options available but not enabled by default:
      * STRICT - warn on debious practice (i.e. similar to "use strict")
      * WERROR - convert warnings to errors
      * VAROBJFIX -  use last object on scope chain as the ECMA 'variables object'
      * RELIMIT - Throw exception on any regular expression which backtracks more than n^3 times, where n is length of the input string
      * ANONFUNFIX - Disallow function () {} in statement context per ECMA-262 Edition 3.
      * METHODJIT_ALWAYS - Always whole-method JIT, don't tune at run-time.
      
      Also:
      - Fixed JS warning string formatting (missing space separator).
      - Removed an extraneous new-line in lprintf() call in mailsrvr.
      - Added basic assertEq() global method to jsexec, required when running SpiderMonkey test scripts.

      Optionally distinguish between timeout and NUL inkey() result · bec4667e
      Rob Swindell authored
      Some terminals can send NUL (ASCII 0), e.g. hitting Ctrl-Space in Apple iTerm. Allow users of inkey() (in C++ or JS) to optionally detect the difference by specifying the K_NUL mode flag. In JS, console.inkey() will return null upon timeout (rather than "") when the K_NUL mode flag is used and return an empty string ("") upon receipt of NUL (ASCII 0).
      
      The default is the previous behavior where a timeout and the receipt of a NUL character appear the same to the caller of inkey().

      Rob Swindell authored
      Allows %f (drop file) and %s (startup-directory) to be specified on the external program's command-line and expand to the paths that DOSEMU will understand. No more hard-coding "D:\" or "E:\" and the drop filename on the command-line required.
      
      Also (for all builds), include the door's startup directory for %s specifier on the clean-up command-line. This just seems like an oversight.

      Add/use new K_CTRLKEYS mode to stop inkey() from handling/eating control-keys (e.g. Ctrl-T) when asking user to hit backspace during defaults->terminal settings.

      Support markup tags (optionally) when displaying posts · adb896c1
      Rob Swindell authored
      Defaults to "Off" ("No") and can be set per-sub-board to either:
      - "Yes" parse/apply markup style to displayed message text while still displaying the markup tags
      - "Hide" parse/apply markup style to displayed message text and hide (don't display) the markup tags
      - "No", treat marked-up messages the same as any other message text, same as before.
      
      The supported Markup tags at this time are:
      #bold text#
      /Italicized text/
      _underlined text_
      #inverse text#
      
      Now, ANSI-BBS terminals (and Synchronet) do not support the concept of italic or underlined text (at least, not yet) - so those styles become combinations of the blink and high-intensity attributes which can be used to choose alternate fonts and this works well.
      
      These 4 styles were chosen to be compatible with GoldEd's "Style Codes", though GoldEd is actually very configurable in its support of these tags/codes and its possible we're not 100% compatible. For example, GoldEd (and SemPoint) both support the combining of tags/codes to created combinations of styled text - Synchronet does not (this is consistent with Mozilla/Thunderbird's "Structured Text").
      
      Multiple words can be styled with a single set of tags, but the first and last word must be delimited by white-space (this is not consistent with Markdown).
      
      Multiple lines can be styled with a single set of tags, but not multiple paragraphs (this is consistent with Markdown).
      
      The rules I chose were to minimize false positives but maintain some interoperability with GoldEd and Thunderbird with a familiar/common tag syntax.

      Add option to create drop files in node's temp directory. · 2014777c
      Rob Swindell authored
      Enabling this feature causes the node's temp directory to be cleared before
      running the external program and causes the drop file(s) to be created-in and
      read back from (when appropriate) the node's temp directory.
      
      Creating drop files in a node's temp directory eliminates the possiblity of
      an external program (e.g. door game) accidentally reading the wrong drop
      file (e.g. wrong-cased name or a stale file of a different type).
      
      Note: Synchronet/XSDK doors *always* read their drop file (xtrn.dat) from the
      node directory, so don't try to use this option with those doors. Only doors
      where you can configure the drop file path or specify on the command-line
      (e.g. %g for the temp dir or %f for the fullpath of the drop file) should
      potentially use this new feature.
