If you select text and then use E, to edit the label, you may see an error if your text height is greater than 80. One workaround is to delete the text and reenter it with a height that is within the proper range. Another workaround is to use an old
vembinary to edit the height and set it to within the range.

hppa.cfrontmay fail. The problem seems to be with the
ldcommand line argument. You must use the

gcc-2.7.2distribution, but this PTF is superseded by the PTF U436313. This PTF allows you to upgrade the cc IBM compiler from the release 188.8.131.52 (delivered with AIX 3.2.5) to the release 184.108.40.206 which compiles gcc-2.3.6.

ar, which seems to have problems if it is run on two files whose names are not unique in the first 13 characters. We have renamed a number of stars to workaround this problem. The

ldstyle incremental linking because of problems with g++ shared libraries. This means that the SunOS4.x binaries must be linked statically instead of dynamically, so the binaries are much larger than on platforms that use
dlopen()style incremental linking. It also means that only the symbols that are used by stars present at link time are actually present in the binary. This can be a problem if your incrementally linked star uses a symbol from
libg++.athat is not used by a star present at link time. See Appendix D, "Shared Libraries" for more information.

gcc-2.7.2may not choose the expected cast. In particular,
g++has been known to cast everything to

This will be dramatically slower than double or integer arithmetic, and may yield unexpected results. It is best to explicitly cast states to the desired form.
