Description John Malmberg 2004-10-12 20:25:52 UTC
This is mainly for tracking some OpenVMS specific data display issues.

OpenVMS displays process IDs in hexadecimal, not decimal.

The ino_t type is displayed as a decimal tripple in parenthesis (nn, nn, nn)

The uid_t is normally displayed as an octal double in brackets, [0nn, 0nn]
unless POSIX uids are in use.  POSIX uids are only available on recent versions
of OpenVMS.

This affects SAMBA on OpenVMS in the area the STATUS and SWAT programs, but also
with the DEBUG statements that are all through SAMBA.

I think it is safe to say that while there are still relatively recent efforts to compile Samba on OpenVMS (I found an almost-successful effort on 4.3: http://www.ccsscorp.com/VMSblog/index.php?m=05&y=16&entry=entry160521-083131 ), Samba won't be changing display formats for OpenVMS.
