Problem description

The mcs development tool exists on Tru64 UNIX, but not on HP-UX. This tool will be available on a temporary basis in the Tru64 UNIX Migration Environment for HP-UX.

The mcs development tool allows users to perform operations on the comment section (.comment) in ELF object files and archives. It is commonly used to mark object files with tool or product names and versions.

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.
