bbsget - Fetch and print articles in a remote Telnet-BBS
bbsget [ -d ] bbsname board login[:password] [ recno... ]
This script logs into a remote BBS supported by the BBSAgent backend. The bbsname should be one of the
*.bbs descriptors, and board is any board name within that BBS.
The third argument is usually
guest, but it may also be a colon-delimited login:password string.
You may specify one or more recno, or accept the default -1 (the last article). Note that it counts from 0, and negative indices means to count backwards.
Debug messages are printed if the -d flag is specified.
To display the last article of melix board in the Elixus BBS:
% ./bbsget elixus melix
