critical impact:

libcomplex and libtask - not supported; use standardized versions (CrUn240)

LIB Impacts

Problem description

The identified libraries exist on Tru64 UNIX, but not on HP-UX. However, a standardized replacement technology exists.

The libtask and libcomplex C++ run-time libraries have been moved to the retired subsets directory (Tru64_UNIX_Retired) on the Associated Products, Volume 2 CD-ROM.

The redistribution kits that ship on the Tru64 Associated Products distribution have been removed from releases after Tru64 5.0A. Although applications can continue to use these libraries, they are linked statically. These libraries might be completely removed in a future release.

Solution description

Use the respective standard versions of these class definitions.

If you have code that uses the nonstandard complex class in the library, we recommend that you use the template complex class defined in the C++ Standard Library. If you have code that uses libtask, we recommend that you use the POSIX Threads Library.
