Yes, I am using it. It took quite a bit of effort to get it to see things my
way. I have tar'd my working system and I've put it up for anonymous ftp at It's in the /pub directory, and it's name 'tick.balcom'

I'm running this in /usr/lib/tick - YMMV.

AREAS: I am dumping most stuff into one big file area that I make available
for F'Req. Only the stuff that I really want do I keep in other areas.

NODES: This is ONLY for who you are sending files to - as best as I can
figure out.

Postings: I don't use.

Processor: is also not getting used.

Trigger: i shut off somewhere. It seemed to hang when I used that.

Run on the mess so it will make some data bases. Then, run and it will do it all.

I have been unable to make this set up work with Perl v5. It looks for some
things that Perl v4 did not. So, I have it set to run with Perl v4.

This lash up is processing the entire filebone for me, everyday.
