Message Header

When reading messages, you will often want to create a custom header for the message reading, as an asc/ans file, instead of the default message header driven by TEXT.DAT settings.

The File should exist in ./text/menu/MSGHDR.ASC you can use the ANS2ASC utility for an initial conversion. You will then want to put the appropriate control codes into the message header.

Here are a few codes that I find useful (note the -L### is for padding/trimming the length of an item)

  • @SMB_GROUP@
  • @SMB_SUB-L#######@
  • @SMB_CURMSG@
  • @SMB_MSGS@
  • @MSG_DATE-L#########################@
  • @MSG_ATTR-L#########################@
  • @MSG_FROM_NAME-L#########################@
  • @MSG_TO_NAME-L#########################@
  • @MSG_SUBJECT-L#########################@
