Hi Bruno

$ cat /etc/resolv.conf|wc -c

So it reads all 68 chars.

OK, stepping thru...
$ run -debug -inspect=on ./test-read-file

  st_ctime = 1255974436,

  st_reserved = {0, 0, 0}
(eInspect 3,1152):

So this is why it errors here:
          if (len != statbuf.st_size)
              fprintf (stderr, "Read %ld from %s...\n", (unsigned long) len, 
              err = 1;

The problem is, that here /etc/resolv.conf is a symbolic link to a structured 
EDIT file in the Guardian namespace, /G/system/ztcpip/resconf (which in 
Guardian is $SYSTEM.ZTCPIP.RESCONF). These EDIT files in Guardian have a 
structure that is very much different from 'flat' files in UNIX (or OSS, for 
this matter). 

$ ls -l /etc/resolv.conf
lrwxrwxrwx    1 SUPER.SUPER        SUPER         24 Jan  9  2010 
/etc/resolv.conf -> /G/system/ztcpip/resconf
$ ls -l /G/system/ztcpip/resconf
-rwxr-xr-x    1 SUPER.SUPER        SUPER       2144 Oct 19  2009 

/etc/resolv.conf does not always exist here (even if it should), but if so, it 
most likely points to that Guardian file.
Similar for /etc/hosts, /etc/networks, /etc/protocols, /etc/services. This 
should ensure that both personalities use the same setup. Guardian EDIT files 
are only readable from OSS (when using POSIX APIs), not writable.

So we'd need to make sure that in this test we use a file (or symlink to a 
file) in the OSS namespace. One file that always exists here would be e.g. 
/etc/profile.sample, so I'd use:

#ifdef __TANDEM
#define FILE1 "/etc/profile.sample"
#define FILE1 "/etc/resolv.conf"
#define FILE2 "/dev/null"

Or do you have a better idea?

Bye, Jojo

That should work too. When on Linux I change FILE1 to "/tmp/symlink" which is
a symlink to a regular file, then test-read-file passes. Since it's not the
same for you, it's worth investigating. It might be some incompatibility
in stat() or fstat(), that is, something pretty fundamental.

Just compile this program with debug information and single-step it.
