• Semafore on tossed echmail

    From alterego@1:103/705 to Digital Man on Friday, September 25, 2020 10:59:01
    Hey DM,

    I know I asked about this a while ago, but wanted to check on it in case I missed seeing it implemented. (I dont think it is..)

    I'm hoping to see a semafore created when sbbsecho tosses mail to a sub and the sub has a semafore defined in scfg (sub -> Advanced Options -> Semaphore File).

    It seems that that semaphore is created when you write a message on the BBS in that sub, but if something comes in via sbbsecho, that semafore is not created.

    Has that been added?

    (My work around would be to have a cron job check for new messages in that sub, but I'm hoping to have it more real-time event driven... :)

    ...

    ... Nostalgia is OK, but it's not what it used to be.

    No, it had not.

    I found your original request in my todo list (by your unique spelling of "semaphore") - anyway, it's implemented now. Hopefully that does what you were wanting.

    Howdy,

    Thanks - I'll kick off a rebuild.

    Yeah, I know I misspell it - I think a hangover from the old days, when I would have a directory called SEMAFORE - in the days when you could only have 8.3 char filenames...

    ... Ignorance is no excuse-it's the real thing.
