This script will allow the user to save or print the currently displayed
message - or save multiple messages to disk. The user is given the choice
whether to include the headers or not, and if the file already exists on disk,
whether to overwrite or append.

The default filename for a single message is taken from the message subject. Any
'/', ':' & ' ' characters are converted to '-', ';' & '_' respectively.

The default filename for multiple messages is taken from the Conference name
with '.msgs' added as a suffix, i.e. 'ALT.SYS.AMIGA.THOR.msgs'.

Of course, in both cases, the user can set the filename to whatever he or she
desires.

To save multiple messages, use shift-click in the message list window to select
the required messages. If the message list window is not open, the user will be
prompted to open it before running the script again.

For printing, the current message is first saved to the file 'T:Temp.msg' and
then copied to the PRT: device.

This script will only work from within Thor.

Any comments or suggestions, please email me. Thanks

History
V1.5       Fixed a bug where a System name with spaces caused the script to
(14.5.98)  fail. I can't believe I didn't think to find/fix this last time
           around in V1.4.  Thanks to Robin K. Brookes for highlighting the
           problem

V1.4       Fixed a bug where Conference names with spaces in caused the script
(11.9.97)  to fail. :(

V1.3       The save directory now defaults to the Save Dir, as set in Thor's
(15.2.97)  Global Paths (thanks to Paul Gooch for the suggestion).

           Each message in a 'multiple message save' has a divider showing the
           message number, the conference and message creation date.

           General tidy up of the code

V1.2       Added support for saving multiple messages to disk.
(13.2.97)

V1.1.1     BUGFIX: SaveMsg now also converts '/' to '-' in the filename.
(10.2.97)
           Changed printer output to PRT: device instead of PAR: device.      

V1.1       Added the capability to print individual messages, with or without
(9.2.97)   headers.

           The script will now find the path to Thor (using ENV:THOR/ThorPath), 
          rather than use the assign 'Thor:', which may or may not exist on all 
          systems.

V1.0       Initial release.
(8.2.97)
