safe_open - not supported; temporarily available (CrUn139)

Problem description

The safe_open function is a security-related function that exists on Tru64 UNIX, but not on HP-UX. This function will be available on a temporary basis in the Tru64 UNIX Migration Environment for HP-UX.

The safe_open function opens a file for I/O with comprehensive or customized security checks.

The Migration Environment contains Tru64 UNIX APIs, development tools, and commands and utilities to assist customers in migrating their applications from Tru64 UNIX to HP-UX.

Solution description

The safe_open function is in the Tru64 UNIX Migration Environment.

Applications will be able to use this function from the Tru64 UNIX Migration Environment for HP-UX. However, there may be some minor differences between the safe_open function in the Migration Environment and the one in Tru64 UNIX, mainly in the area of file system handling and access control lists. Review the safe_open(3) manpage in the Migration Environment to see if the differences have any impact on your application.

Note that the Migration Environment is temporary.
