5.1.     Introduction

     Secondary input refers to input that has to be processed by an intermediate program that will produce a .J file to be then used by the JD suite.
     In some cases, the initial input on which these programs operate is originally entered in an Excel type format (e.g., with Typology of Pottery).
     In other cases, the initial input is a formatted directory, as with the V and W directories.

two spaces not allowed in VW, G\P and G\T filenames; if blank field is to be used, use dash

Back to top

     5.5.1     Multiple input within I\J folder

       The file I\J\FILELIST.TXT (produced by the FILELIST-J.BAT batch file within the I\J folder) is required in order to process multiple input files in a single pass. The file is deleted after running the JD program.
          The batch file RENAME J.BAT is a temporary utility that allows a global change of files with extension .-J to extension .J (for repeated processing of input files)

     5.5.3     Templates

       The file G\T\LoRes\FILELIST.TXT (produced by the FILELIST-JPG.BAT batch file within the G\T\LoRes folder) has the following format:
L_A16t0001 V14d4001 M726 lr.jpg
L_A16t0001a V14d4002 M726 lr.jpg

L_A16t0004b V14d4014 L914 lr.jpg
This file serves as the input for the PTD program, and must be produced before running the program.

5.6     Strata assignment to eements other than features

     The program S (see below, 15.6) operates automatically on the basis of the S batch file (see below, 15.4.2). It uses as input all the pertinent files found in the O folder.
     It presupposes that a strata assignment J file be first processed by the JD suite. This file must contain a log in the format described above under 4.6.4.

5.7     Strata assignment to aggregates and element assignment to aggregates (and viceversa)

     The program A (see below, 15.7) operates automatically on the basis of the A batch file (see below, 15.4.3). It uses as input all the pertinent files found in the O folder.
     It presupposes that an aggregate assignment J file be first processed by the JD suite. This file must contain a log in the format described above under 4.6.1.
     It also presupposes that the S program be first run, since the S program assigns strata to items and other elements that may define the aggregate, and are therefore used by the A program.

5.10     Typology of Pottery (Body and Shape Sherds)

     An original Excel input is supposed. It follows the exact format of the form for either body or shape sherds (see figure below, which gives only the left hand side of the form).

     Note that all extraneous lines (here, lines1-4 and lines 7-8) must have a semi-colon as the first character. They will then be disregarded by the TP program.
     The Excel file name has no fixed format. It will include the initials of the people who entered the date and then proofread them. It is recommended that the filename be entered in the line immediately before the data, with a semi-colon initial. For changes in the filename when it is processed, see below, 18.2.
     All lines that are not related to the data entry must begin with a semi-colon
     The critical line in the form is line 5. It gives the codes that are used to define the fields in the J file. The full list is given below:

.rd .ri .bk q# cp F2 ZcaA wm sh ZcaS1 ZcaS2 ZcaS3 ZcaS4 ZcaD1 ZcaD2

.qc w1 w2 ZcaM1 th ZcaC2 ZcaC4 ZcaW5 ZcaW6 ZcaW7 ZcaW8 ZcaW3 ZcaS9 ZcaF1 nt

     The first four fields (.rd, .ri, .bk, q#) must be filled in at the beginning and whenever they change.
     Field F2 can be left blank because it will not be copied to the .TP file. It is only useful for internal checking of EXCEL files.
     The sixth field (cp) must be filled in in all records. For body sherds, the numeration from 70 to 99 must be used (see Grammar 14.6). If a number is missing for an individual sherd, this presumably means that the physical sherd did not have a number written on it. In this case, numbers 69 and lower are used, with a note in the note field. This means that numbers from 70 up and from 69 down will not be written on the sherds, while numbers from 1 up will be written. As the system is fully implemented, the 69 and lower series will disappear.
