• FileFix rescan support o 21:1/100?

    From Digital Man@21:1/183 to All on Tue Apr 20 00:56:11 2021
    So the file manager at 21:1/100 (htick) sends me this %list report:

    *SR FSX_ARTS ........................... "ANSI Art - Groups, Individuals etc." ...
    '*' = area is active
    'R' = area is readonly for you
    'S' = area is rescanable

    So it's reporting that the area is "rescanable" [sic] - but when I send a %rescan command, it comlpains:

    Area Status
    -------------------------------------------------- -------------------------
    %rescan FSX_ARTS ................................. error line

    And when I check the husky/htick documentation (htick.html), it doesn't mention "rescan" anywhere.

    Does 21:1/100 support file area rescans or not? aTdHvAaNnKcSe

    You need to know the filename and area you want to get the file from. Use a command like this in a netmail to filefix.

    %resend <file> <filearea>

    %resend cph.artpack29.zip fsx_arts

    I recieved that file recently so I think that filename would work for you.

    Rob, that should do the trick. Let me know if it blends or not ;)

    Thanks Al for the reply.

    The "error line" may be because their is a space after the filearea name.

    Rescan works, except it should be "resend".

    The %resend command needs both a filename and a file area.

    A rescan command would be better than trying to figure out what files are available and what area they are in but that's the way it works with htick.

    Ah, so it's not actually a "rescan" in the echomail sense. Thanks,
