Re: HP machines for CMU CL


Bob Wheeler (the HP expert in the Mach group) confirms that the current
state of the system should be up to the task with two provisios:

1) The Mach port does not currently have the necessary HP-UX
compatibility hooks to drive the HP compiler/linker suite so
one machine will have to run the BSD port (on which you can compile/link)
and the other the Mach port.

2) The Mach port does not support AFS yet either so some amount
of remote copying will be needed as well.

I suggest that it might be most useful for William to talk directly
with Bob if he has specific questions about the state of the
environment with respect to how best to proceed with the port.
