    I see there is an AutoAreas option _but_ it requires feeding a CSV of _all_
    the file areas, if I'm parsing the documentation correctly.

    No, you just specify the file *library* names (in tickit.ini), e.g. AutoAreas=fsxNet,FidoNet

    Thanks for this.

    The challenge for me now is that the documentation says the 'directory names' need to be valid tags.

    However, my directory names (default as created when you import) are of the format:

    FIDONET_NODELIST

    With the generated 'FIDONET_' prefix.

    This seems to fail to match an area tag of 'NODELIST'.

    What's the best way forward with this?

    just a note that TickIt does not hatch files... it only processes TICs and their associated file to add them to your filebase and send them on to linked systems that have not yet seen the file in question...

    hatching files is the process of injecting a file and its TIC into the FDN distribution stream...

    2. Suggestion: Can tickit be adjusted so that AutoAreas also works if the
    'FidoNet Area Tag' field matches?

    It already does.

    Ah, this is great, thank you. Tested it earlier and it's working perfectly. Thanks for your help.

    Hi,

    I've set up a large number of file areas based on the Filegate list.

    What's the best way of tickit.js automatically hatching files into the areas? (The codes will match).

    I think if you want to hatch files, you might want to use something like Allfix and have them send them out with a TIC file, otherwise, to import the files coming in, it might be easier to use TICKIT to fetch the TIC file in your inbound then using ADDFILES to add the files. Luckily, there's still a file_id.diz in some zips with all the glorious file information we need.

    Or HatchIT.js <shrug>
