Dear Sun Managers,

The file in question ended up being restored from backup.
As to the errors at the end of the file, the only lead I have
is that the machine had been brought down just before this problem

Thanks to the two people who responded:

original posting:

Dear Sun Managers,

A user has reported a problem "with a file which has been truncated."
According to this user, "the bit_error:label at the end is not the end
of the file." The file in question is within a ClearCase Versioned

I am not sure what to make of this. A search of the Sun-Managers
has not yielded any related information. Below I include a tail
as well as an od -c of the tail of this file.

Any help would be very much appreciated. I will summarize.
