Bullseye reads the available list of bulletins from text/bullseye.cfg and displays text/bullseye.[msg|asc|ans] as the menu to the users of the terminal server.

New in Bullseye Bulletins v3.00: If the the menu file (e.g. bullseye.asc) does not exist, an auto-generated enumerated list of bulletin files will be displayed to the user for their viewing selection.

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


Note: the first line of the bullseye.cfg file is currently not used. The remaining lines are paths to bulletin files, correspond to the bulletin numbers in the menu file (if it exists).
