External Program Data File (a.k.a. drop file), DOOR.SYS format.

This file should normally be created in the current node's directory (example: C:\sbbs\node1). The current node's directory can be easily passed to external programs via command line (using the %n command line specifier in SCFG) or more easily retrieved by external programs be reading the SBBSNODE environment variable.

The DOOR.SYS is a plain text file consisting of CRLF-delimited lines, parsed one line at a time.
