The Question is:
We have observed a change in the behavior of the PURGE/CONFIRM command after
upgrading to VMS 7.3. As shown, replying "All" under VMS 7.1-1H2, only applies
to the specific associated filename (this is the preferred behavior), while
under VMS 7.3, replying
"All" purges all the files. Was the change in the behavior of this command
The Answer is :
On nothing more than the description here, the older behaviour
certainly looks unexpected and invalid. The input command ALL
was not really processed as ALL files, after all.
Please note that V7.1-2 contains repairs for number of problems
that were found in V7.1, V7.1-1H1, and V7.1-1H2. Please upgrade
to at least V7.1-2 (or later).
