AUTOMATIC PROCESSING of MANUAL UPDATE FILES:

--------------------------------------------

Manual files in /mnt/aleph/opac and in /home/aleph/opac/data are to be named:

    'manual_update_ids_mta' (for bib record updates)

or

    'DEL_manual_update_ids_mta' (for bib record deletes)


If these files are provided, they will be processed by the half-hourly update process.

When the extract script completes processing, the filename/s will be appended by "_mnt_<date>"


formats:

--------

- for manual file with bib records to be sent to catalog as updates (see example file):

008170905DUK01 <9 digits and DUK01>


- for manual file with bib records to be sent to catalog as deletes (see example file):

DUKE005956595  <DUKE and 9 digits)



MANUAL-MANUAL FILE:

-------------------

To run the update script for the manual file only (no other bib records get included),

call the script with the input file, use complete path:


from /home/aleph/opac or /mnt/aleph/opac:

> ./endeca_delta_early_mta_manual.sh /mnt/aleph/opac/aaa yes


(NOTE: second input parm is optional, sets 'testing' to 'yes': output file is not sent)
