ON A MASTER: *SRLOAD WEBBC 8000 <socket#>
where <socket#> may be 7,6,5,4
ON A MACHINE WITH SWRAM: *LOAD WEBBC 8000
and press CTRL-BREAK to initialise.
The image will then be installed into the chosen socket where it can be entered
with *WEBBC if in a valid mode.Valid modes are 0,3,4,and 6.
The useage of WebBC is easy,and all actions are entered by pressing CTRL-key
combinations as detailed below.
CTRL-U Enter a URL (well,valid filing system filename really)
URL names can be upto 255 characters long
CTRL-C Enter an OS star command
The screen will clear and star commands will be interpretted until
a blank line is entered
CTRL-B Go back one position in the history list
CTRL-F Go forward one position in the history list
CTRL-H Go home
CTRL-R Reload the last valid URL entered
Escape Stop whatever is being done
None.All tags are ignored.
"Escape" - the user pressed escape while at the command line
"Not found" - invalid URL name was entered,ie.the HTML file couldn't be opened
"Corrupted history list" - another task inside the BBC has overwritten part
of the history list.Usually,you'll have to press
break to clear this.
"Bad MODE" - you attempted to start WebBC in an unsupported mode.
KNOWN PROBLEMS/FUTURE ENHANCEMENTS-
No known problems
Better interpretation of HTML 'tags' and better filetyping.
Caching of files,rather than multiple BGETs which will be inefficient over
the Econet etc...
V0.10 Beta release to webpages,with no tag support at all
