CrashWrite reads a text file and creates a .pkt file that can be processed by
CrashMail. This can be used to post announcements and other messages in areas.
The best way to use CrashWrite is to let it generate packets in a separate
directory and then toss them with TOSSDIR NOSECURITY.
There are many keywords for CrashWrite. All keywords are optional except for
DIRECTORY. If you do not enter a keyword, a default value will be used.
- FROMNAME string
- FROMADDR node
- TONAME string
- TOADDR node
- SUBJECT string
- Use these keywords to set the header of the message. You
only need to enter TONAME and TOADDR for netmails.
- PKTFROMADDR node
- PKTTOADDR node
- Use these if you want to set the origin and destination
address of the packet to something other than the origin and destination
address of the message inside the packet. If you do not specify these
keywords, FROMADDR and TOADDR will be used for the packet as well.
- PASSWORD string
- You can use this keyword to set a password for the packet.
The maximum length of the password is eight characters.
- AREA area
- The area the message should be posted in. If you do not
enter an area, the message will be sent as a netmail.
- ORIGIN origin
- The origin line for the message. This keyword has no effect
for netmail messages.
- DIR directory
- The directory where the packet should be placed.
- TEXT filename
- The name of a text file that should be included as the
- Prevents CrashWrite from adding a MSGID line.

be put in the subject line.
