SYNOPSIS

atpdiag [ -h | -v | --help | --version ]

DESCRIPTION

A diagnostic script written in Perl, useful during installation of ATP QWK news/mail reader, and for diagnosing possible configuration problems. When started, atpdiag looks for the environment variable ATP . 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 displayed.

Perhaps the most common ATP installation error is the failure to set and export the ATP environment variable. Normally this should be done in the user’s shell startup file such as the .profile in the user’s home directory. ATP expects the environment variable ATP to point to the directory where ATP will keep its atprc configuration file, taglines.atp tagline file, and message bases.

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 case translation explicitly by adding the -L flag to your unzip command in your atprc. This may also be accomplished by setting and exporting the UNZIP environment variable.

When run, atpdiag will attempt to detect your UnZip version and report if the configuration appears wrong.
