13:54 mtompset Greetings, #koha.
13:54 mtompset @later tell cait Is that what you are thinking of on 4162?
13:54 huginn mtompset: The operation succeeded.
13:54 cait hi mtompset ;)
13:55 mtompset Now, back to 8462.
13:55 cait bug 8462
13:55 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=8462 major, P3, ---, kyle, Signed Off , OpacHiddenItems and hidelostitems hide items, but query result count is off
13:55 cait mtompset: just wading through some old bug reports
13:55 cait bug 4162
13:55 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=4162 normal, P5 - low, ---, mtompset, Needs Signoff , Inventory Tool Fails Silently
13:56 cait mtompset: the content could be a problem here
13:56 cait some have - and other characters in their barcodes
13:56 cait also it could be non ascii - although that would be not a wise thing to od, but i have seen it
13:57 mtompset That would cause problems printing the barcodes.
13:57 cait not necessarily
13:57 cait we had a library using barcodes with ß in horizon
13:58 mtompset Really?
13:58 cait yep.
13:58 mtompset Because I recall us having issues trying to print even lower case.
13:58 cait it depends on your barcode type i think
13:58 cait wich characters can be encoded or not
13:59 mtompset No, it tied into the PDF mess.
13:59 cait well not every library uses koha for barcode printing
13:59 mtompset if I recall.
13:59 cait or they use rfid
13:59 cait we don't enforce such barcodes in circ, so i think we can not add a restriction on the inventory tool
13:59 cait i like the length
13:59 mtompset okay... then printable characters?
14:00 cait sounds good
14:00 mtompset just change the regex.
14:00 cait i can add a comment to the bug
14:00 mtompset please do.
14:01 cait thx for taking on an old bug :)
14:01 cait in my dream world we'd have like 200 open bugs instead of almost 1000
14:37 mtompset It is simple enough, and I needed a bit of a break. :)
14:40 mtompset Greetings, druthb. :)
14:45 druthb Hi, mtompset. :)
15:23 tgoat joined #koha
15:25 mtompset cait: Should space be allowed in the barcode?
15:25 cait i think i'd just check for the length of the first line
15:26 cait it's quite hard to tell really
15:26 cait i know some use longer barcodes and just changed the db...
15:26 cait gah.
15:30 mtompset longer barcodes?!
15:31 cait people do crazy things :)
15:31 cait @quote get 123
15:31 wahanui
15:31 huginn cait: Quote #123: "rangi: #thingsihavelearnt if there is a mad scheme a library somewhere will be doing it ... except madder" (added by wizzyrea at 09:20 PM, March 30, 2011)
15:38 cait mtompset: i might be the wrong person to ask about this patch - i am too suspicious of libraries doing crazy things.
15:39 mtompset :)
15:39 mtompset I'm just trying to come up with a nice determine the size of items.barcode field code which is ansi sql or nice.
15:39 mtompset because let's say they do something stupid like change it, without tweaking the schema.
15:40 mtompset need to go old school DBI on this, I think.
15:40 cait hm not sure how to do that
15:40 cait i mean it would be flexible, but others might just say to leave it at 20
15:55 tgoat joined #koha
16:44 mtompset cait: I think this is a better patch now. :)
16:45 mtompset 4162
16:47 cait :)
16:47 cait fighting with CAS...
16:48 mtompset Oh my. My Deepest Sympathies. Authentication Methods suck. :)
16:50 cait yeah they do
16:50 cait biblibre provided atest server, but I can't get it to work
16:50 cait hopefully i have enough hints for them to see why it's still failing

18:44 barton afternoon, all
18:44 cait hi barton
18:45 barton I'm curious about command line utilities for koha.
18:46 barton I know that there are a handful that are bundled with koha ... either to run as cron jobs or the koha-* utilities...
18:47 barton but are there third-party command line scripts out there?
18:59 cait ?
18:59 cait I guess there are some things like the migration toolbox scripts that are somehow separate
19:00 cait but i am not sure that is what you were thinking about
19:00 barton well, really I'm just looking to make my life easier, in any way that I can ...
19:01 barton I'm a command line weenie...
19:01 barton any way that I can get useful trouble-shooting info out of koha is a plus for me.
19:01 barton I just wanted to know if anyone had any tools that I hadn't already seen.
19:02 cait hm don't know of anything from the top of my head
