When I issue the mkdigest command to MD 1.94.3 I get the following
message. I'm using perl 5.003 and IRIX 5.3, and I installed all MD
patches from the archives up to about a week ago.
The relevant part of the aliases is that for xyz-outgoing I have
"| /path/majordomo/wrapper digest -r -C -l xyz-digest xyz-digest-outgoing"
as part of the alias. I copied the form right out of the 1.94.3 release
notes, and the files xyz and xyz-digest exist. I looked through the
digest program for the error string, but it isn't there and I can't
even find this string in any of the files in the MD directory (I
searched for the word "such"). Any ideas what is happening, where the
message comes from, and how I can set about fixing it?
It looks to me as though the option -C requires a filename for an
argument and isn't accepting "-l", but that doesn't gibe with my
admitedly poor ability to read the digest program.
The command was
mkdigest xyz-digest PASSWORD
