The Question is:
Is there a translation list of the following "f$getsyi" arguments?
The Answer is :
No such (complete) list is available.
The include files $ALPHADEF and $VAXDEF will be of interest for the
listing of hardware model codes, as will the available OpenVMS
documentation for general information on the four itemcodes.
Dependence on thee hardware model and similar returned values is not
something the OpenVMS Wizard typically recommends -- these values are
most useful to identify specific platforms for those cases where an
application must specifically handle differences within a particular
platform or within a platform family, and for informational (display)
purposes. Applications that attempt to process or to display additional
platform-specific information tend to be maintenance problems -- as new
platforms are released, these values tend to change. (This is the root
of the problem discussed here, as the OpenVMS releases do not regularly
recieve updates as platforms are released, and as existing listings
within shipped OpenVMS releases are seldom updated when new platforms
are released after the software itself is available.)
With unfortunately no additional details and no background available
-- this with a one-line question -- the OpenVMS Wizard is unable to
provide you with alternatives or suggestions specifically targeted to
the actual problem. Accordingly, please contact the support center.
