execbullseye.js reads the available list of bulletins contained in text/bullseye.cfg and displays textbullseye.(msg/asc/ans) as the menu to the users.

Adding Items to Bullseye Bulletins

Edit text/bulleyes.cfg using a text editor of your choice

user@whatever:/sbbs/text $ nano bullseye.cfg

bullseye.cfg file format

0
../text/qna/faqs.txt
../text/sbbs.msg
../docs/dove-net.txt

Note: the “0” (zero) on the first line is important and must not be removed. This is a place holder so the counter does not start at 0.
the remaining items, one per line, correspond to the item number in bulleyes.msg menu file.
