    debug mode for p_manage_50

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    The documentation for p_manage_50 does not indicate how to turn on the debug mode. The normal "setenv DEBUG Y" does not appear to make a difference. The current log suggests that there are two debug modes:

    "b_manage_50_create_hols debug mode is off"
    "b_manage_50_create_z30s debug mode is off"

    How are these turned on? Can they be turned on individually? Together?

    You can set either or both of the record creation routines (items and holdings) to debug mode by altering the proc used by the procedure. The shortcut to the proc directory is ap. There, you will find a file named p_manage_50. To set both routines to debug mode, add these two lines after the start_p_proc line:
    setenv b_manage_50_create_z30s Y
    setenv b_manage_50_create_hols Y

    You can set just one, if that serves your purpose.
