• Running editor from Operator menu

    From mlong@VERT/INREALM to Digital Man@VERT on Sunday, October 18, 2020 13:32:50
    I was experimenting with running my config program for the operator external programs menu

    If I just do ?xtrnmenucfg I get: "ReferenceError: uifc is not defined "

    If I set it run jsexec instead, it works, but the ANSI is entirely messed up (some kind of charset issue)

    Any thoughts?

    I have at the top:
    load("uifcdefs.js");

    uifc is only supported in jsexec.

    Ok so I'll have to use jsexec. It works fine on the cmd line, but running it as a door is results in some messed up characters (but everything else works).

    Any thoughts on what I might be able to change? Here is a screenshot, using syncterm:

    Looks like UTF-8 encoding. If you can set LANG=C (or maybe another single-character encoding) in the environment that sbbs or jsexec is running, should fix that.

    That fixed it. Thanks!
