Jnos White Page (WP) Support

Jnos White Page processing.

Create a directory /jnos/spool/wp

This directory consists the following files.
1. wpages                                                                   # links a user call to a bbs call.
2. wpagebbs                                                               # contains the full hierarchical address of a bbs call.
3. wpages.new, wpagebbs.new, wpages.tmp            # new entries waiting to be merged into the above (MAIN) files during processing.
4. update.wp                                                              # tracks updates to our database – used for sending white page updates to other systems.

How SP command interacts with WP database.

By default, there is no WP prompt. You have to create a preference before any WP interaction occurs when using the ‘SP’ command to send a message.
Use ‘XW’ (without arguments) to display current setting, for example :

WP options for ‘SP’ – 1=disable, 2=show/prompt, 3=show/noprompt, 4=force it
option 2 is currently set

To set your option, simply do something like ‘xw 2’, that’s all there is to it.

If you enter the command ‘wp pd9q’ and you might get this below :

wp routing ‘[email protected]#ZL.NLD.EU

If I enter ‘sp pd9q’ on my system, I might be prompted like below :

wp routing ‘[email protected]#ZL.NLD.EU’ – use ? (Y/n)
