    This has nothing to do with TLIB, but as a service to our friends and customers Dave Burton has compiled some "virus avoidance advice" to help you avoid getting burned by Magistr, Klez, Nimba, Badtrans, Sircam, Goner, etc..   You can read it here: virus_advice.html (last updated 3-Oct-2002).

    JourJoin, in our download area, is a little program to "join" (combine) the comment records in a TLIB journal file, so that there is only one comment field in the journal file for each U (Update) or N (New library) command.
        When you store a new version of a source file in a TLIB library, TLIB optionally records your action in a chronological Journal File, in CSV (comma-separated values) format. (This is useful for generating customized reports, as well as providing a chronological "audit trail" of version control activity.) You can configure what types of information you want recorded in the journal file, but most users let TLIB store the full version comments. When the version comments exceed one line, TLIB writes multiple records to the journal file, to record the additional comment lines.
        However, if you would prefer a journal file format in which all the comments are combined into one big field, in one record, you can use the JourJoin utility. This is useful when importing the TLIB journal file into some kinds of databases, such as recent versions of Microsoft Access.

  • 27-Aug-2000
