I'd like to know if my QWKSort program for OS-9 ever made to the web
from the BBS days. I don't think I ever uploaded it anywhere on the
web and might not even have a copy for myself or the source unless I
recover my old 42meg OS-9 L2 HD.
I wrote QWKSort to take QWK BBS mail packets and sort them so they
would work from within Scribe. A lot of times the mail file had gaps
in it with null entries, and the mail reader for OS-9 would choke and
you'd miss some categories and messages. QWKSort crunched the file
and may have also reindexed it, but it's been so long I can't recall
what all I did.
