    ret-04 output file defect

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Problem Symptoms:
    * ret-04 ("Retrieve Catalog Records by Date") pads the line with 66 spaces to 80 characters total, rather than creating the expected 14-character lines (doc# + library).

    * This causes the subsequent ret-10 (cross files) to not work with this ret-04 output (unless one knows about the defect and edits the ret-04 output files to strip the extra characters).

    Program defect.

    Corrected by v21 rep_change 2228.

    Additional Information

    ret-01 ("Retrieve Catalog Records "), ret-03 ("Retrieve Records Using CCL"), etc., create files of record numbers with the library name attached, for example


    which is a 14 character string. They do not pad the lines with blanks.
