The situation is not ideal, for certain! It's just one of those things that hasn't gotten fixed.

I'll see if I can take a look sooner rather than later and rewrite the manual results parsing.

MISFIT is automatically taking care of this situation, changing the lines in the result file in the proper way. Unless James have time to provide a fix...

Thank you James. I am sure it would be worthed at the end. Imagine how many threads like this one you would prevent to happen :-).

Default humans are so odd sometimes

This bug has been causing grief for years and dozens of posts have been written with countless tales of woe and no one cared enough to fix it. Then this one thread comes along and the wand is waived and people suddenly respond.

BloodIce you should run for office because when you speak... people listen. YOU HAVE MY VOTE.

That is not true. Originally, there was no mfaktc support in manual reports. Since mfaktc only output the string "mfaktc" on no factor lines, the current solution was put in place -- if any no factor line containing mfaktc was found then it was assumed all factors were found by mfaktc. This was fix #1.

Fix #2 was the change to mfaktc to output the string "mfaktc" on factor found lines.

We are now awaiting James fix #3 to make use of fix #2.

Admittedly, progress has been quite slow. Sorry.

Sometimes, when the wheel squeaks, it's just not as urgent, right then, as the loud banging and thumping from the smoking motor ...

Later, when all else is quiet, the squeak happens again, and the mechanics say, "Hey, remember that squeak? Let's fix it this time." It's not that the squeak was more persuasive that time.
