critical impact:

paths.h - not available (CrUn337)

HDR Impacts

Problem description

The <paths.h> header exists on Tru64 UNIX but not on HP-UX.

This is a BSD header that defines macros like _PATH_BSHELL and _PATH_DEVNULL for the paths of important system utilities and files.


C/C++ Header Filespaths.h

Solution description

Copy the header or its macros.

All of the paths in the Tru64 UNIX <paths.h> header file are the same on HP-UX except for _PATH_MAILDIR and _PATH_UNIX. _PATH_MAILDIR is /var/mail on HP-UX and _PATH_UNIX is /stand/vmunix.

New behavior

#define _PATH_MAILDIR "/var/mail"
      /* Tru64 UNIX: "/var/spool/mail" */
#define _PATH_UNIX    "/stand/vmunix"
      /* Tru64 UNIX: "/vmunix" */
