    From Fat Rastus@46:1/107.2 to All on Saturday, July 16, 2016 17:15:29
    Hello Again,

    Being a noob to Mystic I"m trying out everything and getting used to all the features.. I have created, and then deleted, a few users. I tried to clear out the deleted users by running mbbsutil with the -UPACK switch but the deleted users are still shown.. also worth mentioning is that the mbbsutil program didn't indicate it was packing anything when -UPACK like it
    does when packing other database files. Is this a work-in-progress or did
    the commands change from what is listed in the docs?

    Thanks

    Fat Rastus

    MBBSUTIL is left over from Mystic of the 1990s its sort of not really supported. Items here are being removed one by one and re-added into MUTIL.

    UPACK was removed a while ago and it should be noted and explained in the 1.12 notes. If you type MBBSUTIL on a command line there is not even a "-UPACK" option listed, so where/how are you seeing this?

    I think g00r00 could give you better info on mbbsutil than I can, but
    mbbsutil is being phased out and those options are being moved to mutil. The -fpack option was moved to mutil recently.

    Ttyl :-),

    It's in docs/mystic.txt I assumed that those were the instructions. Having
    to read through all those whatsnew files.. well.. it's very easy to miss things. I did concatenate the whatsnew into one big file so that I could
    grep through it more easily.. but even then it's easy to miss things
    without knowing the exact keywords.. I have memory issues and I have to
    look things up often.. a good set of 'indexed' docs would be very helpful!
