MMS and case sensitivity

Hi Folks,

Have the issues with MMS and case sensitivity been resolved yet? I know there have been a couple of threads in this area with the hint that fixes may been due in 2009.

Anyway, MMS is unable to find known targets for:

module_1.PEN

Where module_1.PEN is described as:

MODULE_1.OBJ, MODULE_2.PEN DEPENDS_ON -
MODULE_1.PAS

The session used to do the build is set up as:

PARSE=TRADTIONAL
CASE=BLIND

Is this the expected behaviour or is it still broken? I can get round the problem by upper-casing all of the entries in the MMS file.

Its a bit of a pain because previously working MMS files (relying on it all being case insensitive) suddenly stop working.

Thanks for your help


Regards

Brian

You mean "problems"?

"still broken?" since when?

MMS /IDENTIFICATION

"suddenly stop working" when you change
_what_?

It's been a while since I had case problems
with MMS, but I don't know if that's because
MMS has improved, or because I changed all my
description files to accommodate MMS
limitations. My impression was that recent
versions do better with ODS5.

The latest DECset ECO kits on the FTP server
are full product kits. If you're several
versions behind, the remedy could be pretty
simple.

Re: MMS and case sensitivity

For a change we're about current

mms/id gives

%MMS-I-IDENT, MMS V3.9-00 © Copyright 2009 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P.

Apparently DecSet 12.8 ECO 2.

OpenVMS version is 8.3-1H1.

Re: MMS and case sensitivity

Hi,
Tim Sneddon has incorporated my changes into MMK (V4.1).
See:
http://www.kednos.com/kednos/Open_Source/MMK
If you want case sensitivity, use that version of MMK instead of MMS.
I have reported this issue with MMS to engineering, but I'm still waiting for an answer.
