The command uniexp (available in du_upgrade_toolkit until 6.10.21 and UVMS binaries since version 6.10.01) when used to export some objects into a XML file, generates a file that does not have a final end of line character.
This may cause some issues with commands like cat / ed or other when used to display/edit the xml file, as seen below:
Launch a export of an object into a xml using uniexp:
uniexp -mshost UVMS_HOSTNAME -msport 4184 -login admin -pwd XXX -company COMPANY -area X -NODE -upr "*" -file /tmp/uprocs.xml
a. Either do a tail -1 file on the file or open it with a visual text editor such as notepadd and note that the last line is missing a LF:
tail -1 /tmp/uprocs.xml
b. When using a line editor such as ed you will see a message stating that it had to add a final line to the xml file because of that:
Release : 6.10
Component : Univiewer Management Server and du_upgrade_toolkit
Command impacted: uniexp
XML format does not require end of line characters or end of file character as it's not a POSIX format.
Update to a fix version listed below or a newer version if available.
Dollar Universe 6.10.91 - Available
A modification was done in uniexp to add a final /n in the generated XML file to avoid such issues with text editors.
