Version NN Invalid


We executed an  unix command from PL/SQL stored procedure and got the 'Version 27 Invalid' message from DRGFilt, but executed the same command directly from unix box in putty, everything was fine. The following is the command:

'/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1/bin/drgfilt_lnx_64 -0 f27 drgmasks.f27 /home/mhuang/DRGFilt_control.txt </home/mhuang/DRGFilt_input.txt >/home/mhuang/output.txt'
What does the 'version 27 Invalid' mean to DRGFilt?  Also can we add our custom keyword in the control file? We plan add more fields into the control file.


re: "Version 27 Invalid"
This means that version 27 could not be initialized. Usually, this means that the drg masks file could not be found or could not be read.

re: custom keywords
No, DRGFilt does not allow custom keywords; however, you can put line comments into the file so long as those comments are preceded by a sharp sign, like this:

sex 156 1
# this is a line comment
