BBS doors dropfiles.

Dropfiles for Unix BBS systems.

Not all options that are available under DOS or OS/2 can be used with Unix BBS systems and must be faked. The doorfiles are written in the users homedirectory when the user starts a door.


DOOR.SYS format.

The door.sys format is a 52 lines ascii textfile, each line is terminated with a cr/lf pair. In the setup it is possible to force the creation of MM-DD-YYYY dates instead of the MM-DD-YY style. Newer doors sometimes need that.
