We are running Franz Lisp, opus 38.79 in VMS 4.1, Eunice 4.1 .
The way "funny" VMS filenames such as i.am.funny (two dots) and
longfilename.l (more than 9 characters in first-filename) are hashed by
Eunice was changed from version 3.X (HSN/HSH filename extensions) to
version 4.X ($-sign encoding).
The problem is even though we are running in VMS/Eunice 4.1, Franz only
understands the VMS/Eunice 3.X funny filename hashing e.g. for
(load "longfilename.l") . It gives a "file not found error" if the
filename is hashed using the 4.X hashing scheme.
Can anyone clarify this situation for me? I.e. is it likely to be a Franz
problem or a Eunice problem we are facing? We have not rebuilt Franz yet,
but would this help? Would recompiling some C file help? There's a
function cvt_unix_to_vms . Is this the culprit? Is this a Franz function
or a Eunice function? Any advice would be appreciated.
Also, some .exe files work fine without rebuilding from 3.X . Others
err out with: [EUNICE: $IMGACT failed, Status = %X84d8cbc - Couldn't get
message string]. Does anyone know what this means?
