NAME

crashwrite - Creates PKT file from text file

SYNOPSIS

crashwrite DIR directory [FROMNAME string] [FROMADDR node] [TONAME string] [TOADDR node] [SUBJECT string] [AREA area] [ORIGIN origin] [TEXT filename] [NOMSGID] [FILEATTACH] [PKTFROMADDR node] [PKTTOADDR node] PASSWORD [string]

DESCRIPTION

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.

OPTIONS

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 message text.
NOMSGID
Prevents CrashWrite from adding a MSGID line.
FILEATTACH
Sets the file-attach flag for netmails. The filename should be put in the subject line.
