• tickitcfg

    From Alterego@VERT/ALTERANT to Digital Man on Friday, August 30, 2019 11:11:02
    So I was running tickitcfg today - and I couldnt get out of it.

    When I choose "ESC" to exit, regardless of whether I answered yes or no to write the INI file, it kept taking me to the menu.

    So I killed it and lunched it with STDERR going to a file, this is what was in it (of interest):

    JavaScript: Destroying context
    JavaScript: Destroying runtime

    Re-running: tickitcfg
    JavaScript-C 1.8.5 2011-03-31
    JavaScript: Creating runtime: 8388608 bytes
    JavaScript: Initializing context (stack: 16384 bytes)

    Why was it "re-running"?

    I lunched it with "jsexec -l tickitcfg 2> /tmp/z"

    BTW: I also manually ran jsexec -l tickit to process some inbound tic files (and some that couldnt be processed because the error didnt exist) - and it was stuck in a loop of processing the same two files over and over again - I think related :)

    Why are you using -l?

    -l loop until intentionally terminated

    Maybe you wanted to use some other option?

    Why are you using -l?

    Ahh crap, sorry, my bad.

    I use -l <ftn address> with binkit sometimes, and I guess it got into my history.

    (I knew it there was a simple reason....)

    Then *that* '-l' would need to follow the script name.

    I am having problems getting tickitcfg to execute. The error flashes by so fast I am not sure what it is. I know Ive used it before since the files from one of my networks are fine. I just need to add the other one since I have files and .tic files sitting in my inbound dir.
    I am running it from external programs my command line is
    ?tickitcfg.js
    any ideas why it wouldnt be working?

    I'm assuming you're operating on Linux...

    Try this:

    cd /sbbs/exec
    ./jsexec tickitcfg



    Another option is to just manually edit the /sbbs/ctrl/tickit.ini
    file with a text editor. Quite easy to do.

    Could be anything. Got see that error message.
