Yes. And that leaves you where exactly on HP-UX,
HP-SUX customers would need to pester HP so they collaborate with SGI personnel in FAM.


AIX... ?

Does AIX still exist?

(all remarks are product of a black-humor mood)

Basically, the changed file notification is the problem of the operating system and low level layers. We only index. Those people interested in having our product work in their particular architectures can contract us to collaborate with the SGI people to support their operating sytstem. Most every other component in our system is automatically portable, beecause it's written in python. Installation footprint might become a concern, but for our target platforms, Python is already installed, and there's a fairly standard Python distribution that can be installed in almost every platform. Furthermore, we could investigate into reducing the Python installation footprint. We basically employ the POSIX and the XML parsing utilities.
