Multi Font Files and Release 6-7

From: David D. Loeffler <Loeffler@MCC.COM>
In Symbolics 3645 1Release 7 Problems0 in Genera 7.0, Mailer 5.2,
IP-TCP 52.0, microcode 3645-FPA-MIC 394, FEP 127,
Machine serial number 4864,
h:>loeffler>patches>release-7>mcc-electric-lisp-mode.lisp, on Dave's HAL 9000:
We are having 2SERIOUS0 problems with Release 6-7 and multi font files.
Our group has 51 Symbolics machines. 2 are running release 7 and the
rest are running release 6.1 with Rel-6-7 loaded. All of our code
development uses multi font files and now we have found that the systems
running Rel-6-7 have their own way of writting out multi font files so
that they can not be read correctly from Release 6 or Release 7. These
files can be read correctly only from other machines running release 6.1
with rel-6-7 loaded.
Viewing files written out by Rel-6-7 reveal a "*" being insterted where
normal a "0" is inserted at the being of the file then later in the
file the "*" seem to be inserted at random.
Warning: If you have MULTIPLE FONT files in Rel 6 the Rel-6-7 system
will screw those files so that Release 7 and Release 6 will not be able
to read them with font shifts in the right places any more.
