    "Word too long" error while running write_vectors step in Encounter test Reply

    Hi,

    I am getting an error called "word too long" while executing write_vectors step in command line prompt of ET with version 8.1.200.

    A particular keyword in the write_vectors step namely "releasepioffsetlist" is having 173 primary inputs listed under it and assigned with offset values.

    As a workaround i reduced it to 164 primary inputs under this keyword then it is working fine (vectors are getting writtern).

    Please help me on this issue.

    Thanks

    Krishnaraj

     Hi Krishna,

                 I guess this is issue with linux, there is some limit in linux when considering the hash/length of a variable (may be we can change this limit with some settings but i am not aware of that).

                        I also had the same issue when assiging a variable with some details, below are the details of the issue i had and the way we sloved.

     Issue occured when i used:

    echo "\n\t$toolLogFiles" >> logs/infralogs/$stageName.log

     

    Issue sloved with:

    foreach logFile ($toolLogFiles)
    echo "\n\t$logFile" >> logs/infralogs/$stageName.log
    end

     

                    Hope you can use similar method to get rid of the issue.

     

    regards

    deepak.

     Hi Deepak,

    Thanks a lot for your reply.

    If it is like there is a limit for a command length in unix then can you let me know what is the commnad line buffer size?

    How can i change the command line buffer size?

     Thanks

    Krishnaraj

    Krishnaraj,

       Is there a reason you are using version 8.1.200 of our software?  We are releasing 11.1 in a couple of weeks which puts you 3 major releases behind.  There have been command, variable and character length issues in the past.  Most of those have been fixed.  Please try your design with a a more recent released version and see if you have the same issue.
