Re: bbs.menu vs bbs.menu_exists

At minimum, a .asc or .msg menu display file is required. bbs.menu() first looks for the *most* applicable file format, not all file formats.
But it will find .ans - I guess I expected bbs.menu() and bbs.menu_exists() to work with the same formats so they could work together.
I could convert I
gues (but then I'd have to always convert back and forth to edit them.)
.msg and .asc faster or are they "more native" to synchronet? Just curious.

Well I know that. I was just wondering why bbs.menu_exists() didn't test for the same set of menu types that bbs.menu() can display. It was just unexpected to have it not find my .ans. I really don't want to keep multiple copies in different formats and convert menus back and forth every time I have a new one made or make a change (especially while I'm in the process of making a lot of changes.)
Either way, I just wanted to ask since it seemed inconsistant at the time, but I'm sure there's a reason so I'm not looking to die on this hill. :) I'm using a slightly less hidious way of accomplishing what I was doing, but not as readable as if I could have used bbs.menu_exists(); It's still down to 3 lines of code as opposed to 6 or 7 like it was before so yay. :)
