EXEC Directory

Directory Contents

This directory contains executable and interpreted files:

  • Binary executables (e.g. .exe)
  • Baja-interpretted (.bin) with source (.src, .inc)
  • JavaScript (.js)



The exec/load directory and mods/load directory contain JavaScript library (.js) files that are load()ed by other JavaScript modules.

More than one directory can be searched for JavaScript load libraries. The set of load directories/subdirectories is configured with the JavaScriptLoadPath value in the ctrl/sbbs.ini file.


The exec/tone directory contains 'tone' (.ton) files which are interpretted (e.g. by the tone utility or the playtone module) to generate simple monophonic melodies (e.g. for sysop paging).

SBBSEXEC Environment Variable

The SBBSEXEC environment variable may be used to point (contain the path) to this directory, but is not normally required.

See SBBSEXEC for more details.
