atpdiag looks for the environment variable
then searches for the configuration file
atprc. If that file can be successfully opened,
atpdiag parses it, checking specified paths and support programs for existence
and accessibility. Informational, warning, and error messages are
Perhaps the most common ATP installation error is the failure to
set and export the
environment variable. Normally this should be done in the users shell
startup file such as the
.profile in the users home directory. ATP expects the environment variable
to point to the directory where ATP will keep its
atprc configuration file,

Another possible ATP configuration problem occurs when using Info-Zip
UnZip 5.11 and later. These recent versions of UnZip require the -L flag
when un-zipping certain qwk packets originating in the MSDOS world.
Previous to UnZip 5.11, the default behavior for UnZip was to translate
MSDOS file names to lower case on unzipping. Now you must request lower
