AUTOGEN, MODPARAMS.DAT, and duplicates?

» close window

The Question is:

In the file MODPARAMS.DAT if an item is entered twice, which value prevails.

The Answer is :

  The last matching entry located is the one used.
  There is an obvious test to determine the particular behaviour
  of AUTOGEN here, too, of course.  (AUTOGEN will typically write
  a diagnostic into its report file for duplicates, as well.)
