    Anyone out in the Pb-Dos world know of any web apps that will let me upload an active list of things (ftp?) to a site
    Also take a look at FDISK.COM.

    If you try to make something idiot-proof, someone will invent a better idiot.

    Sounds like a job for a Windows app, rather than a DOS app, especially since dealing with TCP/IP communications is VASTLY easier in Windows than DOS.

    That said, there is a TCP library in the FILES section at -- you'll still need to install and configure a TCP stack for the DOS copde to work though. (Ugh!)

    However, for a simple FTP transfer, you might try using the FTP.EXE app installed with Windows.

    The shopping-cart app is another aspect altogether, and using CGI applications is a common solution and you can write these with PB/DOS... there are some CGI routines (server-side for a Windows-based server such as IIS) in the same FILES location.

    Good luck!

    Looking for web based app

    Hello all:

    This may be in the wrong area but it involves DOS and the web.

    Anyone out in the Pb-Dos world know of any web apps that will let
    me upload an active list of things (ftp?) to a site that will
    allow several remote users to log in and see what is in stock
    at any one of a dozen or so actual locations logged at our
    central (home grown erp) system.

    The remote user then grabs (shopping cart?) the item & qty
    needed and this should reduce the count in the central system,

    The pb dos "inventory" should be active / alive and web aware.
    (downloads every __ so ofter or when a web trigger is active
    that denotes a need to refresh the main file in the central
    PB dos system.

    Or: inner branch transfer somehow that lets the location that
    has the item know to ship to the remote user somehow.

    A potential joint venture ?

    This could be a real the power app linkage my customers have been
    looking for. The linkage from a PB-Dos app to the web and back
    seems like a need to fill (Henry Kaiser once said).
