Specify Item Number within a Job

$job_item index|-1|-2 total

This command is used to indicate the index of an item and the total number of items launched in a job. It is added to the FS files generated for the job and the index is incremented as each FS is created. As each FS file is created, its filename is added to the .JCF file for the job instance.

A negative index number indicates a transmission associated with the job but not part of it, such as a proof or job report. As each such FS file is created for the job, its filename is added to the .JCX file for the job instance.

The parameters on this command are used as follows:

index the index or sequence number of the FS file in the job
-1 a code indicating a job proof transmission FS file
-2 a code indicating a job report transmission FS file
total the number of items in the broadcast job. This value is omitted when the index value is negative.

Default: none (required command in job admin)

Examples:

Normal job item:

$job_item 37 4560

Job report:

$job_item -2
