Description Magnus Enger 2010-07-08 18:16:00 UTC
I was having trouble processing koc-files with /cgi-bin/koha/offline_circ/process_koc.pl. I got this message, both for items that were on loan and items that were not on loan: "Warning: Unable to determine patron from item barcode (71556236). Cannot check in." 71556236 is a valid barcode. 

This hack on around line 192 of offline_circ/process_koc.pl fixes it: 

sub parse_command_line {
     my $command_line = shift;
     $command_line =~ s/\r//g;

Comments from IRC: 

[20:04] pianohack: magnus: Are these windows-style \r\n lines?
[20:04] magnus: pianohack: probably
[20:04] pianohack: magnus: All chomp does is remove the line ending on the platform you're running on
[20:04] pianohack: linux server, windows client?
[20:04] magnus: yup
[20:05] magnus: adding $command_line =~ s/\r//g; solves it
[20:05] gmcharlt: s/\r$//g; would be slightly more precise
[20:05] pianohack: magnus: You might consider just replacing chomp entirely with s/[\r\n]*$//g
[20:05] pianohack: No reason to have both, I don't think
