critical impact:

ESCDELAY environment variable - not supported (CrUn232)

LIB Impacts

Problem description

The ESCDELAY environment variable exists on Tru64 UNIX, but not on HP-UX.

If the ESCDELAY environment variable is set, the identified functions wait for the specified time period between the escape and following key sequence that indicate a function key. Setting this delay time is useful when function-key sequences are being transferred over a slow network.


Command ArgumentsESCDELAY

Solution description

Review your code and remove any dependencies on the ESCDELAY environment variable.

The ESCDELAY environment variable is nonstandard, so portable applications should not depend on its availability.
