Add Files

New for Synchronet v3.19, this JavaScript utility script replaces the functionality of the old ADDFILES program.

This script can import files into one or more filebases either using input filename/description lists (e.g. FILES.BBS) or by just searching for files in the directory's storage path and using any descriptions embedded in each file's archive (e.g. FILE_ID.DIZ).

If you just want to add a single file from the command-line, then you'll probably want to use postfile.js instead.


Run with JSexec

jsexec addfiles -help
