I have found that there is an issue with the "" script which retrieves the <last N runs> as described in the usage. The issue at hand is that the script does not retrieve the last N runs. The GUI relies on this script to update the Run number in the state diagram.

I have opened an issue on daqinterface: Bug #24105

We'll follow up there and once it gets fixed we'll test and close this one.

The implemented function replaces the method of retrieving the run number iterating the run_records folder by parsing the output of "".
