• Filename truncated when uploading via ;UPLOAD at the menu

    From Nightfox@VERT/DIGDIST to Digital Man on Thu Jan 27 19:30:52 2022
    Hi DM,

    I noticed something while doing some testing today. I wanted to upload a file to my filebase on my BBS to test removing files, so I created a text file that I called fakeUpload.txt (and added a string in it that just said "Test"). While logged onto my BBS, on the file menu, I used the ;UPLOAD string command to upload it. When it prompted me for the file description, the filename was truncated to fakeUplo.txt. However, when listing files via JavaScript, it looks like it has the full long filename.

    I'm not sure if this is a known issue, but I wanted to let you know.

    No, that's expected. If you use a wider terminal, the full filename can be displayed in listings in the terminal server too. And the [E]xtended info on the files will always show the full filename (or at least, up to 60 or so chars, depending on terminal width).
