 +==== Automatically hatch a list of files to FDN ==== 
 +
 +The '​[AutoHatch]'​ stanza tasks MUTIL with automatically hatching / sending nominated files to Mystic echomail nodes connected to nominated file bases.
 +
 +This can be a useful tool if you wanted to automate regular files to be sent to echomail nodes. E.g a weekly ​ FTN style nodelist (e.g. FSXNET.Z33) or infopack or other files you want to ensure both new and old echomail nodes should possess locally on their systems.
 +
 +To enable this function you modify the '​[general]'​ stanza as follows:
 +
 +  [general]
 +  ​
 +  AutoHatch ​          = true
 +
 +For this function to work each file defined must already exist in a file base on your BBS.
 +The syntax for each file to be hatched is defined on a individual line.
 +The format is 
 +
 +        file=<​base ID or echotag> | filename | replaces filename (optional)
 +
 +An example of this might be:
 +
 +        file=nodelist | fsxnet.z99 | fsxnet.z99
 +        file=3 ​       | infopack.zip
 +
 +The above will hatch two files.
 +
 +One called fsxnet.z99 to be hatched to a filebase with an echotag of '​nodelist'​ and ensure the file being hatched replaced any prior file called fsxnet.z99 on the receiving echomail node. 
 +
 +The other from a file base on the BBS with an ID of 3 and send the file called infopack.zip located in that file base out to all connected echomail nodes.
