ATPDIAG(1)                 ATP QWK Mail/News Reader                 ATPDIAG(1)



NAME
       atpdiag - checks atp qwk reader configuration.


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.
