locked #bugreport ALL.TXT #IssueReport

Team:

I am noticing that under some conditions, the date field is omitted from ALL.TXT for monitored calls, but not for transmissions I make.

What is a little more odd, this did happen when switching from 160 meter FT8 to 6 meter MSK144.

Is this a known issue?

I have just downloaded and installed the rc4 version in case the issue is resolved.

(I use the ALL.TXT file to recreate QSOs that don't get properly logged due to an xquartz crash. Usually I run WSJTX on Intel NUCs running Ubuntu after doing "ssh -Y <linux-host>" and xterm. Works most of the time, but xquartz on mac has proven to be unexpectedly crash-worthy.)

Hi Bill,

I ran into this problem when I tested some function in my Alltext.exe program that I sued for the same function.
I found that when I used WSJT-X  2.3 rc1 (or rc2).  The Date and time was only included in the TX record that
was written to the All.txt file.

I believe the problem was fixed when 2.3 rc3 was released.

Well, my issue was in the RC3 release.  I'm now running with RC4, and will see if it iis still there.

This issue still exists for Rc4, but apparently only for MSK144.

this has been this way for quite a while, I would have to look at release notes.  but sounds normal.  if the date does not change why append with it and slow the process..

I has not been this way for a long time. It was a bug that was corrected but seems to be still in the version that bill is using.
I was running the Windows version and it was corrected in a later RC release. 
If appending the date and time slows the process on your PC, then you have a problem with your hardware.

So if adding the date to the beginning of a log file takes more than a handful of microseconds, I would be surprised. The bulk of time would be actually taking the underlying unix time (in seconds) and converting it to a string. This is already done for the display of the signal on the left panel.

Secondly, the date is not changing on either the 1.840 lines, nor on the 18.100 or the 10.136 FT8 lines, but the time is put on those lines.  Clearly the time changes, however.

Further, for the MSK144 lines, they occupy the clock time between 210419_140330 and 240419_070515, which is on the order of 7 hours. At what time does the line Z4VUR/R RH0BDY/R R DH26 occur? There is no way to tell from ALL.TXT.

Finally, why would it behave differently on FT8 as opposed to MSK144?

With respect to the release notes, for RC3 it says:

 - Repair regression with missing time-stamps in the ALL.TXT journal.

It would appear from my RC3 use and now RC4, that there are situations still exhibiting the behavior.

I am thinking this is a bug.

Hi Bill,

I ran into this problem when I tested some function in my Alltext.exe program that I sued for the same function.
I found that when I used WSJT-X  2.3 rc1 (or rc2).  The Date and time was only included in the TX record that
was written to the All.txt file.

I believe the problem was fixed when 2.3 rc3 was released.

Team:

I am noticing that under some conditions, the date field is omitted from ALL.TXT for monitored calls, but not for transmissions I make.

What is a little more odd, this did happen when switching from 160 meter FT8 to 6 meter MSK144.

Is this a known issue?

I have just downloaded and installed the rc4 version in case the issue is resolved.

(I use the ALL.TXT file to recreate QSOs that don't get properly logged due to an xquartz crash. Usually I run WSJTX on Intel NUCs running Ubuntu after doing "ssh -Y <linux-host>" and xterm. Works most of the time, but xquartz on mac has proven to be unexpectedly crash-worthy.)

Hi Bill,

Yes, it is a bug. I would suggest you test the RC release of ver 2.4 and see if it is in there as well.

I had to make special provisions in my Alltext.exe program to accommodate that bug.  

73,

Subject: Re: [WSJTX] #bugreport ALL.TXT

So if adding the date to the beginning of a log file takes more than a handful of microseconds, I would be surprised. The bulk of time would be actually taking the underlying unix time (in seconds) and converting it to a string. This is already done for the display of the signal on the left panel.

Secondly, the date is not changing on either the 1.840 lines, nor on the 18.100 or the 10.136 FT8 lines, but the time is put on those lines.  Clearly the time changes, however.

Further, for the MSK144 lines, they occupy the clock time between 210419_140330 and 240419_070515, which is on the order of 7 hours. At what time does the line Z4VUR/R RH0BDY/R R DH26 occur? There is no way to tell from ALL.TXT.

Finally, why would it behave differently on FT8 as opposed to MSK144?

With respect to the release notes, for RC3 it says:

 - Repair regression with missing time-stamps in the ALL.TXT journal.

It would appear from my RC3 use and now RC4, that there are situations still exhibiting the behavior.

I am thinking this is a bug.

Dave sorry disagree

If you ‘filter’ all.txt to get all MSK entries - to see what was sent etc - no date there.
Your argument assumes there will be details ON THE SAME day before/after the MSK entries to allow you to find the date - what is to say the details before (or after) are for the same day.

The log file should show the date/time for each entry.
