CMD Impacts

Problem description

Some Tru64 UNIX ls functionality does not exist on HP-UX.

The ls command lists the contents of the directory.

On Tru64 UNIX, placing an = (equal sign) after each socket file name when ls is called with the -F option is supported. This functionality is not available on HP-UX.

On Tru64 UNIX, the -F option places a / (slash) after each file name if the file is a directory, but not if it is the symbolic link to a directory (it uses an @ (at sign) instead). HP-UX does not discriminate between directories and symbolic links to directories in this context; a / (slash) is used in both cases.
