BULLETIN lets you read and post messages on PPPL bulletin boards. There are several bulletin boards of interest to the TFTR user:
|TFTR||Machine Schedule, Access Information,|
|and Meeting Notices|
|TFTR_SHOTS||Parameter Summary for Recent Shots|
|SNAP||SNAP and SNAPIN Bulletins|
$ BULLETIN >select TFTR select the TFTR bulletin board >set readnew to be prompted to read new TFTR bulletins when logging in OR >set brief to be told of new TFTR bulletins as they are posted >set notify to be told when there's a new message in TFTRIf you prefer not to be prompted for TFTR messages when logging in, then set noreadnew. If you don't want the one line description that there are new messages in TFTR, then set nobrief. (Repeat the settings selecting SNAP, TRANSP or any other bulletin.) To read a new TFTR message, type:
$ BULLETIN TFTR >read or <return> >exitThe HELP from within BULLETIN is good (not so with $ HELP BULLETIN). BULLETIN is a lot like VMS MAIL.
