RESULT.ED is the name of a drop file that an external text editor may leave for the BBS to read and use after the editor has completed creating or editing a text file (typically a message). The filename is traditionally all-caps, but Synchronet supports result.ed as well.


The RESULT.ED is just simple text file, with lines normally CRLF terminated (though LF-terminated lines often work too).

WWIV BBS software and its related message editors (e.g. WWIVedit) supported a 2-line RESULT.ED file. Synchronet supports an additional (newly-defined) 3rd line.

Line Description
1 Anonymous (1 for true, 0 for false) - unused by Synchronet
2 Message subject
3 Editor details (e.g. full name, version/revision, date of build or release)
