Known Errors

These are the known errors in our products, logged as reported with versions and platforms affected as well as corrections and work-arounds.

This list is largely historical, since it records all problems that have been reported throughout G&R history. Only the most recently reported problems still exist, unless you are using a very old copy of the product, in which case you should update the product to the most recent version.

E0157: Glink, RSBK script command only acts upon numeric literals

Product: Glink
Platform: Windows
Status: Closed, fixed in 5.4.3
Last updated: 1996-10-17 12:47:15

The RSBK command for reading the scrollback is documented as
reading the screen when negative line numbers are used. In
release 5.4 this only works if the line number is specified
as a numeric literal, i.e.

   RSBK %1 -1 1 80

will work, but

   RSBK %1 %2 1 80

will not work when the %2 variable contains '-1', instead
giving an error message that the parameter is out of range.

This error is only found in 5.4, not in earlier releases.

A workaround is possible, just replace

   RSBK %1 %2 1 80

(for example) with

   CALL ("=RSBK %1 " %2 " 1 80")

This delivers the value as a literal rather than a variable
