Beat me to it, Steve!
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Nope, I disagree!!! I think he is looking for...
SOME.NAME(0)

or possibly the oldest catalogued generation i.e. -4 in a GDG that keeps 5 generations

/psychic day on

maybe using the ugliest terminology around the TS simply wants to know
what is the meaning of GDG.BASE.NAME.GxxxxVyy
also known as last qualifier or in some circles also as last node
cheers

When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort
