Error description

  • When running an IBM Rational ClearCase cleartool find command
    for a specific attribute, you get different results in the
    command shell than you do in the cleartool interactive shell:
    
    Example 1:
    In a Microsoft Windows command prompt, nothing is returned in
    the command:
    M:\test\none_test\dir?ct find . -version
    'Defect_Num=='RFC-12333'' -print
    
    M:\apply_label_test\symlink_none_test\dir?
    
    In the cleartool interactive shell, you get the following:
    
    cleartool? find . -version  'Defect_Num=='RFC-12333'' -print
    .\foo1.txt@@\main\1
    cleartool?
    
    Example 2: If you use the syntax in the info center for the find
    command, you see:
    
    M:\test\none_test\dir?ct find . -version  'Defect_Num ==
    'RFC-12333'' -print
    cleartool: Error: Extra arguments: '=='
    Usage: find { pname ... [-depth | -nrecurse | -directory]
                | [pname ...] -all [-visible | -nvisible]
                | -avobs [-visible | -nvisible]
                }
                [-name 'pattern']
                [-cview]
                [-user login-name]
                [-group group-name]
                [-type {f|d|l}...]
                [-follow]
                [-kind object-kind]
                [-nxname]
                [-element query]
                [-branch query]
                [-version query]
                {-print | -exec command-invocation | -ok
    command-invocation} ...
    
    In the cleartool interactive shell, you see:
    
    cleartool? find . -version  'Defect_Num == 'RFC-12333'' -print
    .\foo1.txt@@\main\1
    
    WORKAROUND:
    
    Use the cleartool interactive shell instead of  command prompt.
