Re: system tracing program - trace/truss

The error EF_A3 and EF_T8 not declared are due to some problem in the V5.1B Tru64 header file. The build goes fine on V4.0G. When the /usr/include/machine/reg.h file which contains the definitions for the above constants is viewed in the two versions of OS,

V5.1B contains this line
#if defined(_KERNEL) || defined(_EXCEPTION_FRAME)

whereas V4.0 doesn't. I dont know how are _KERNEL and _EXCEPTION_FRAME set.

The Enhanced system V Functionality
(ESVF) kit contains the truss utility; I believe it is available in APCD2.

I install "entended system v" from APCD #2, but trace/truss not installed.

srv42#which truss
no truss in /sbin /usr/sbin /usr/bin /usr/ccs/bin /usr/bin/X11 /usr/local /opt/zip

srv42#whereis truss
truss:

srv42 #trace
ksh: trace: not found

Another way to find a utlity back on the system is to "grep truss /usr/.smdb./*.inv "

You will find that it is in /usr/opt/svr4/usr/bin/ (from subset ESVFBIN200)
