Subj : Htick & ancient tic processors
My ZC is complaining to me because his stone age tic
processor is unable to
handle the tic files generated by Htick on my system.
The problem is that Htick
inserts "To 2:292/854" into the tic files, and that line is
not stripped by his
software but instead forwarded to his downlinks, whose
software is NOT stone
age and therefore sees the "to" line and logically rejects
I've tried to disable the to-lines in the Htick, but if I do
that Htick abends
when handling files for busy links. It obviously needs
that line to find out
where to send the file, if it wasn't sent directly (because
of busy link).
I've suggested to Mr. Dossche that he either tries to find
himself a newer
piece of software or filters the incoming tic files
through "grep -v ^To".
Unfortunately he didn't seem to like any of those options.
Would it be possible to disable to-lines in Htick, without
it abending? Anyone
has a better idea?
