Worked in 5.4.1/W

I've got some ACL code that we have been using with ADEPT 5.4.1/W. The
code is:

# read the template file into a named paste buffer
read -buffer template -sgml -nocc "$template_file";
# paste the contents of the buffer to the current location
paste template;

What this did in 5.4.1/W was insert the contents of the file as SGML
into the current document. When I run this same code in 7.0 it pastes
the contents of the file as ASCII text. Any ideas out there?

Here is an example of what the contents of the "template_file" are:





Thanks.

If all you're doing is reading into a buffer in order to paste the
buffer, you're better off doing

read -sgml -nocc "$template_file"

which should insert the contents of the template file at the
insertion point.

BTW, you're not the only one who's had problems pasting sgml
rather than plain text. I think there might be a bug there
somewhere, but haven't had the time to explore it.
