Indetification/Build_identification

IA64, VMS 8.3-1H1, Pascal V6.1-116

Given an image "image.exe", linked without options ion identification:

$ ANA/IMA/SELECT=(IDENT,BUILD) image.exe
(full-spec om image file)
"01"
""

Obviously, symbol ANALYZE$IDENTIFICATION is "01" and ANALYZE$BUILD_IDENTIFICATION is ""

I know I can set IDENTIFICATION to another value specifying IDENTIFICATIOPN= in the link option file, but how do I set BUILD_IDENTIFICATION to another value? I couldn't find it in the LINK manual...

Re: Indetification/Build_identification

You add this line in the Linker .OPT file

BUILD_IDENT="my_string"

AFAIK, this stuff is reserved for HP.

If you want to adjust it, set this via the PCSI installation and particularly the generation setting. (This is how PCSI tries to avoid regressions.)

Or yes, via a linker directive.

Reserved for HP...That explains why setting this element is undocumented (up to today).
