searching for files reaching file version limit

searching for files reaching file version limit

searching for files reaching file version limit

(OP)
I want to do a check on files reaching the file version limit. Tried the solution mentioned at thread951-1266570: Display Directory with Versions almost to the limit but that one did not work. I created a file that is above the threshold of 20000. It did not find that file.

Quote:

>dir test.txt

Directory xxx:[EXE.USER]

TEST.TXT;20100 TEST.TXT;1

Total of 2 files.

>> Reporting on versions greater than 20000 <<

All file versions within specs.

All file versions within specs.

I found a similair routine somewhere else but that one had the same problem:

CODE -->

$ v = 'f$verify(0)                      ! find high version numbers
$ show device d/moun/out=disks.lis      ! get a list of disks
$ open md disks.lis                     ! start reading list of disks
$ v = 'f$verify(0)                      ! find high version numbers
$ show device d/moun/out=disks.lis      ! get a list of disks
$ open md disks.lis                     ! start reading list of disks
$ read md sl/end=have_disks     ! blank line
$ read md sl/end=have_disks     ! device ...
$ read md sl/end=have_disks     ! name ...
$ on control_y then goto have_disks
$r: read md sl/end=have_disks
$ if f$edit( f$extr( 0,5, sl), "collapse") .eqs. "" then goto r ! skip wrtlck
$ on error then goto r
$ on severe then goto r
$ s = f$extr( 0,12, sl)+"[000000...]*.*"
$ ivs = f$edit( s,"collapse")
$ write sys$output "working on ",f$parse( ivs, ,,"DEVICE")," ",f$time()
$s: fs = f$search(ivs)
$ if fs .eqs. "" then goto r
$ v = f$parse( ivs, ,,"version") - ";"
$ if v .gt. 32000 then write sys$output ivs
$ goto s
$have_disks:
$ close md
$ dele disks.lis;/nolog
$ exit 1+ 0*f$verify(v) 

That gives the following output:

Could this have something to do the VMS version? We are on OpenVMS V7.3-2

RE: searching for files reaching file version limit

How about something simpler like:


$ del version_max.txt;*
$ dir disk$1:[000000...]/select=version=minimum=30000/out=version_max.txt
$ if (f$file_attributes("version_max.txt","FFB").ne.0)
$ then
$ write sys$output "FILE(S) WITH VERSION NUMBER > 30,000 DETECTED (32,768 MAX ALLOWED) - SEE version_max.txt"
$ ENDIF

In order to understand recursion, you must first understand recursion.

RE: searching for files reaching file version limit

(OP)
I tried this line but it gives an error:

%IVKEYW, unrecognized keyword - check validity and spelling
\VERSION\

I looked for it in the VMS HELP for the DIR command but there is no /VERSION in there.
