11:06 ecognito Hi, all.  Just installed Koha 3.0 and am trying to do a z3950 search, I get the following error message:
11:06 ecognito Modification of non-creatable array value attempted, subscript -4 at /usr/share/koha/intranet/cgi-b​in/cataloguing/ line 189.
11:06 ecognito I have the library of congress set up my Z39.50 server... not sure what else I need to do...
11:09 ecognito At the bottom of it mentions a z3950 client daemon but I can't find the script file it mentions.
11:17 soul9 you need the yaz library and ZOOM from cpan
11:18 ecognito Should already have all them.  I made sure I installed all prerequisites that running perl mentioned.
11:20 soul9 yeah, then there are some configuration options that affect z3940 searching. like query* options iirc
11:20 soul9 go to admin/ and search for query on top
11:20 soul9 i dunno what specifically is failing for you, sorry
11:20 soul9 i know i had to play with these for z3950 to work iirc
18:46 atz anybody know where the "T-prefix" barcode style originates?  is it Follett?
18:46 gmcharlt atz: yes
19:54 atz gmcharlt: is it our intention to use the t-prefix filter to convert the following:
19:54 atz T32  => T0000002
19:55 atz T42  => T0000002
19:55 atz i'm guessing not
19:56 atz TFOOBAR  => T0000000
19:57 atz TZZZZZZ => T0000000
20:16 atz ryan: can you clarify why we are dropping the first digit at the T ?
20:56 ryan atz: follett systems strip a leading T\s ...
20:57 ryan it's impossible to tell if a barcode as printed has the T or not in some systems that come  from Follett.
20:57 atz ryan: we strip the T AND an additional nonzero digit, then recompose it into T%07d
20:57 atz see the examples T32 and T42
20:59 ryan atz: that's a line of code often customized, i think.
21:00 atz ok... i sent a in a patch that left the behavior unchanged, but it should be documented what the code is *attempting* to do
21:00 atz i included some test cases based on my limited understanding of what was intended
21:01 ryan originally, it should have converted 'T32' to '32', afair
21:02 atz that's what I would think.
21:02 ryan it definitely was not supposed to convert to T\d+
04:52 anasha hello #koha wish you all happy new year!
