Wrong description of DECC$SELECT_IGNORES_INVALID_FD feature in C RTL Manual

HP C Run-Time Library Reference Manual for OpenVMS Systems Order Number: BA554-90014 June 2010 describes DECC$SELECT_IGNORES_INVALID_FD feature as the following:

"
DECC$SELECT_IGNORES_INVALID_FD
With DECC$SELECT_IGNORES_INVALID_FD enabled, select fails with errno
set to EBADF when an invalid file descriptor is specified in one of the descriptor
sets.
With DECC$SELECT_IGNORES_INVALID_FD disabled, select ignores invalid
file descriptors.
"

In fact, the feature works the opposite way.

Somebody from HP monitoring this forum: please report it to the appropriate group at HP.

Boris,

please feel free to send mail to

openvms.programs (at) hp.com

if you feel you've found a problem in OpenVMS documentation and you don't have a support contract with HP.

I sent them email. We do have support contract but this is not something we're interested in pursuing officially. A "thank you for reporting the problem, it will be fixed in the next doc. release" will be good enough. I'll reply here when I get a response.

Hi Boris,

Thanks for reporting the problem. As you pointed out; the HP C Run-Time Library Reference Manual should be modified to correct the behavior of DECC$SELECT_IGNORES_INVALID_FD feature logical when it is enabled/disabled.

We track this problem internally; and should be fixed in next document release.

Thanks,
