    Base library used in UTIL-G-3, UTIL-G-2, and UTIL-H

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

    Description:
    UTIL-G-3, UTIL-G-2, and UTIL-H use a "demo library" for getting/comparing values. It seems that different kinds of libraries have different demo libraries. How can we know for a particular library what demo library is being used?

    Resolution:
    The demo library is determined by two tab100 variables:

    (1) BASE-DEMO-LIB: If the value is "2" then the first three characters will be "MAB"; otherwise, the the first three characters will be "USM".

    (2) DOC-TYPE-XXX:

    If DOC-TYPE-BIB is "Y", then the library number will be "01" (USM01 or MAB01) .
    If DOC-TYPE-HOL is "Y", then the library number will be "60" (USM60 or MAB60).
    If DOC-TYPE-ADM is "Y", then the library number will be "50" (USM50 or MAB50).
    If DOC-TYPE-AUT is "Y", then the library number will be "10" (USM10 or MAB10).
    If DOC-TYPE-ILL is "Y", then the library number will be "20" (USM20 or MAB20).

    You can see what the base demo library is for a particular library by entering these commands:

    dlib xxxnn <where "xxxnn" is the library for which you want to do util g/h >

    echo $base_demo_lib

    [Note: If the base_demo_lib shows as the library itself rather than the USMnn library, see KB 8192-4215. ]
