    src/sbbs3/atcodes.cpp
    Log Message:
    New @-code: !x to perform Ctrl-A style terminal/attribute control

    Most Ctrl-A code terminal/attribute effects can now be invoked via @!x@ where x is one or more Ctrl-A sequence operands (e.g. @!B@ to set the current attribute to blue, @!P@ to pause the terminal). Multiple attribute codes may be specified in a single @!x@ sequence. Both upper and lowercase attribute codes are supported. The "^A@" sequence is not supported, but there's already an @-code to perform the equivalent operation ("SHOW:20").

    Rationale: when using PabloDraw to edit display (e.g. .msg) files, there was no easy way to explicitly clear (set to "normal") the current attributes at the end of a line of text. If that line of text contained a background color and the line caused the terminal to scroll, that background color would fill the next/new line resulting in some potential undesirable effects. There are 2 common solutions to this problem: either clear the screen before displaying the file (not always desirable) or clear the attributes at the end of the line (before the CR/LF). This can now be achieved by adding a @!N@ (the equivalent of Ctrl-AN for "normal" attributes) to the end of a line. There's no way to insert custom Ctrl-A sequences or other way to force PabloDraw to clear the attributes at the end of a line, that I found.

    I chose the '!' character because it's (on my keyboard anyway) the Shift-1 key and Ctrl-A is ASCII 1. I considered a sequence such as @A:x@, but that's one more character and since this sequence usually won't display anything, a shorter sequence is likely preferred. For the shortest-possible sequence, use Ctrl-A sequences instead. However, for many consecutive Ctrl-A sequences, the @-code equivalent might actually end up being shorter(!). @-codes aren't support in as many places in Synchronet where Ctrl-A codes are supported (for security reasons), so it's not like this is going to replace the use of Ctrl-A codes everywhere.

    how many genders are in the list.

    However many the sysop configures in SCFG.

    In a minute, this CPS value will be of more use since it'll be reflective of the user's actual download rate (in characters/bytes per second) instead of just some randomly-chosen numeric constant.

    Log Message:
    Add GETDIM @-code to get the current ANSI terminal dimensions (rows and cols)

    This code will do nothing if there's no user logged-in or their terminal is
    not ANSI or their terminal dimensions (rows and cols) are set to specific values (not auto-detected). This code does the same thing as calling JS console.getdimensions(). Since it waits (up to 5 seconds) for a CPR response from the terminal, this does potentially slow down output, so caveat emptor.

    This could be used by a sysop to address issue #529.

    Log Message:
    text.dat string IDs can now be used in/as @-codes, directly

    The TEXT:<x> @-code can now be used with the text.dat string ID rather than
    the text.dat string number, if preferred.

    For convenience and brevity, ALL text.dat string IDs are now valid @-codes (case-sensitive). While this functionality is redundant with the TEXT: @-code now, if there are any conflicts between new/existing @-codes and text.dat string IDs, the TEXT: @-code can be used to overcome such conflicts.

    This should help with localization (to other languages) by using common single-word replacements (Which, Quit, Next, etc.) in text.dat strings.
