Subject: What will "ACKT=NO" do?

Hi,

One of my records reads from hardware then triggers a chain of actions
through FLNK.  From time to time it can get stuck: SEVR=INVALID, 
STAT=SCAN.  When it gets into this problem, it stops the FLNKing --
which is the desired behavior, but stops forever.

Now, when next scan is due, I would like the record to forget about
the previous problem, and try again.  If it can read (SCAN the streamdevice
input), do everything as usual; if it fails, do not FLNK -- stop the
chain, just forget about this cycle.

Will this "ACKT=NO" do the trick?  Please help to confirm.

Thanks and best regards,
Dehong
