ix38217 ifndef in termio.h
for _h_TERMIOS is in error. The "ifndef"
in the file termio.h uses _h_TERMIOS
which should be _H_TERMIOS (upper case
H). Since the _h_TERMIOS is not defined termio.h
continues and defines several variables that are already defined by the
file termios.h giving the error message "warning: XXXX redefined".
ix39461 The POSIX function of localeconv
is missing from the C libraries on AIX 1.3.
ix41997 Need support for non default
attributes on tape drives. Updated tctl
man page for new code so that users can now use tctl to change the settings
for the tape drives. For instance, if a drive supports compression,
it can be turned on using tctl.
ix44738 Extended curses drawbox
function does not set colors.
ix46219 The slattach
is not shipped with slip, therefore there should be no references to the
command in the man pages.
ix46214 cdshutdown man page has
an error under the sntax line, it says /etc/shutdown
rather than /etc/cdshutdown.
ix46322 The example for the sliplogin
man page says to create an entry in /etc/passwd
for a user and shows adding the user Sfoo. When using the adduser
command, the first character of a user name must be lower case. Therefore
our example should probably show a lower case user name since most users
will add a user using the adduser command.

ix27860 Application program uses
several processes all writing to a named pipe which is read by a single
process. After reaching the 2 gigabyte limit (2147483648, 0x80000000) the
writing process fails even though all data was read and the corresponding
ix30452 highlighting from tput bold
turns off when more cmd used tput bold; ls -l
| more; (use a long directory that will require entering space
bar to continue seeing output) After hitting the space bar, the output
is no longer highlighted.
ix30455 Using extended curses on
3151 connected to ps/2 with nodelay flag
the end window command puts escape sequence characters on screen (10;32;40m).
ix30503 An application written in
C code and Jovial code linked into an executable on AIX PS/2 at 1200 level
calls the pow() subroutine six consecutive
times. The function returns the correct expected value for
five calls of the loop, but, on the sixth call, a failure happens.
The correct values returned from the call should be a power of ten,
however, the sixth call returns an invalid value like a large negative
ix30611 Inter-language executable
made from C-code and Jovial code. The C code is compiled with debug flag
and .debug section exists in the executable. However, the Jovial
code also creates line entries as shown by "dump
-h". The fact that it has BOTH a .debug flag and line
number entries confuses dbx into thinking that this is a Metaware
executable and dbx tries to run mdbx . When the Metaware compiler
is not installed (and thus no mdbx) dbx bombs trying to run mdbx.
If mdbx does exists, then mdbx dies with "mdbx: internal error: nesting
depth underflow (0)" message.
ix31151 Copying a named pipe hangs.
According to the Commands Reference, the data in the pipe should be copied
to a regular file. The problem here is that there is no data in the pipe.
This has been documented.
ix31741 The step and stepi commands
do not work in dbx. DBX does not work correctly when a program assigns
a value to a global static 'char' variable. The problem was a mistake
in the opcode structure. That problem caused dbx to miss parse instructions
by not reading in the full line. For example:
a0 a9 3d 40 00
monvb 0x403da9, %al
a2 a8 3d 40 00
monvb %al, 0x403da8
was being chopped after the a9, so dbx thought the next instruction
was 3d rather than a 2.
ix31880 When ate
is in non-vt100 mode and a function key is pressed, the ESC character is
sent out but the rest of characters associated with the function key are
not transmitted until the next key is pressed at the keyboard.
ix31892 The filesize limit field
is not being read from the /etc/passwd
file. Using adduser (or vipw) to change filesize field in /etc/passwd
does not result in ulimit being changed from default when user logs in
A22801 was backed out.
ix36512 Xterm terminfo definition
does not exist on AIXPS2 R130.
ix36513 The manpage for ksh has
not been nroffed. If a system does not install nroff, the manpage
cannot be viewed.
ix36518 Sendmail.cf man page is
ix36529 If a program with a function
that has no body is used with dbx, dbx will show the wrong lines when asked
to display them.
returns a huge string value which is incorrect.
