OpenBCM bulletin.bcm

Bulletin boards (bulletin.bcm and boardinf.bcm)

You must have the option CREATEBOARD 1 in the init.bcm for creating bulletin.bcm. If you do not have this you can always use the command “MKBOARD / TMP” to create the file bulletin.bcm.

Now the bulletin.bcm is created. Look at the file.

The name tmp is the board name, the 999 is the Max_Lifetime and 1 is the Min_Lifetime.
Bulletin.bcm is build op in mainboard en subboards.

Now let’s see what that looks like.

So “modes” is the mainboard and the rest is subboard. Now you have everything together nicely.
What not fits into the mainboards or subboards is placed in the “tmp” board. So it is advisable to occasionally look in the “tmp” board if new mainboards or subboards have to be made.

The boardinf.bcm shows board discriptions to the users. Is the boardinf.bcm empty there is nothing to show. Let’s fill it up.

Use capital letters for the mainboard names and lower case for the subboards.
