• sbbsctrl Following Update

    From Ford Prefect@VERT/FORTY2 to Digital Man on Friday, May 20, 2022 14:27:35
    Good day!

    Following an update to the latest Continuous Build, I've noticed that sbbsctrl.exe is not part of the archive (still part of January's release). Is there a recommended process to upgrade and bring sbbsctrl.exe up to date or should it not be used if I intend to use the continuous build in Windows?

    Thank you.

    Maybe you're looking in the wrong archive?

    $ unzip -l sbbs_dev.zip sbbsctrl.exe
    Archive: sbbs_dev.zip
    Length Date Time Name
    --------- ---------- ----- ----
    2616320 2022-05-20 05:06 sbbsctrl.exe
    --------- -------
    2616320 1 file

    I see that https://gitlab.synchro.net/sbbs/sbbs/-/jobs/artifacts/master/download?job=sbbs-windows does not include sbbsctrl.exe (and other expected Windows EXEs), so I'll look into that. But sbbs_dev.zip is hte the usual dev update archive.

    I was using the continuous build and not the nightly. The appropriately choice of words is: I chose poorly.

    What is the "continuous build"?

    Whatever was last build from GitLab "continuous integration". It's missing some exe's however.

    Ah, I didn't realize Synchronet's GitLab was set up for that.
