The test file format (normally this is managed internally, but you can add program-ipformat etc manually) is : If there is nothing selected the parameter is set to '-none-' defque: (path to raw, input file) defque:/fip/zsav/ft/data/gbpoint rawfile: (actual filename of the input file) rawfile:TMMid_FILM_VENUE_20090205.xml param: (name of the parameter file in form/text) param:XMLTEST xchgin: (optional name of xchg-before in tables/xchg) xchgin:PREXML If there is no xchg before, use '-none-' xchgin:-none- default -none- xchgout: (optional name of xchg-After in tables/xchg) xchgout:POSTXML default -none- job: (name of the optional JOB in tables/form/PROCESS) default -none- livedest: (fipDU in USERS file for sending a live test) default -none- copypath: (full path of a folder to copy data to) default -none- program-ipformat: (full path of ipformat program) NOT used for jobs. default: normal /fip/bin/ipformat program-ipformbl: (full path of ipformbl program) NOT used for jobs. default: normal /fip/bin/ipformbl program-ipxchg: (full path of ipxchg program) NOT used for jobs. default: normal /fip/bin/ipxchg Version Control ;11i5 06jul01 WINNT why I dont know and jobs added ;a MACOSX ;b-d 20jan04 added -b and -f ;e-f 17mar06 WINNT again and added G ;g-h 16apr06 added -z testname ;i 11feb09 added program-ipformat and program-ipxchg ;2 percy_win added ;3 added -h licencehostname ;010 29mar99 LINUX (copyright) 2021 and previous years FingerPost Ltd.
