         This is an FAQ which has been explained numerous times on the list.
It was explained in the PROBLEMS file through v2.7.2, with emphasis
in the INTALLATION file that VMSers read it, and there are extensive
comments in the for-VMS-with-MultiNet sections of tcp.h to guide people
in acting on what is explained in the PROBLEMS file.  Al, at my request,
has included a prominent entry for this in his VFAQ.  I also, on more than
one occassion, have tried to explain it to you, and encouraged you to
read the PROBLEMS file, but invariably got your stock replay that you
do not have access to a VMS system (though you did, at the time) nor the
"time" to deal with such things, and obviously didn't read or comprehend
what is in the PROBLEMS file.  The problematic "artifact" here lies in
basic reading comprehension and written communication skills, and
personality structure.  If you "do that" in Your Development Version,
you will be doing what the PROBLEMS file instructs to do when encountering
that compiler message, but making matters worse for people with other
combinations of VMS compilers and MultiNet versions, i.e., it will be
another loose cannon shot.
