"csh" and "dlib" commands give error: "Execute master cshrc; Variable syntax"
- Product: Aleph
- Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23
- Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct, Direct, Local, Total Care
When login is attempted or when 'csh' is entered at the Unix prompt, the following two lines appear in response:
Execute master cshrc
The dlib command also gives errors - and there is no way to perform "util" functions.
In setting up a new library for consortial borrowing (XXX40), a space was inadvertently omitted from the open_new_library command:
csh -f$aleph_proc/open_new_library xxx40 SMALL usm40 "" N Y
should have been
csh -f $aleph_proc/open_new_library xxx40 SMALL usm40 "" N Y
i.e., with a space after the -f. This somehow resulted in the above symptoms.
The following commands corrected the problem:
> cp -p aleph_start.private aleph_start.private.bad.20131003;
> mv aleph_start.private.save aleph_start.private
> source aleph_start
Log in, "dlib", etc., are now successful.
Enter the commands from the /exlibris/aleph/a20_1/alephm/.cshrc file individually. The first was accepted OK, but the second
got the "Variable syntax" error. The aleph_start.private, a file included in aleph_start, had been incorrectly updated (by the open_new_library script).
> ls cshrc
does not work. The following is required:
> cd /exlibris/aleph/a20_1/alephm
> ls -lrt .cshrc
> view .cshrc
