Error description

  • Whilst the overall behaviour is different between Windows and
    UNIX the problems caused by this are common to both platforms.
    If you check the userstatus in the job report section you would
    find it is truncated to 'f:' on both platforms. The difference
    in behaviour is caused by the difference in behaviour of the
    construct kill(0,0) on the two platforms, on windows this
    returns -1 and thus asserts the job being waited on has gone
    away (crashed). On UNIX it returns 0 thus the code thinks the
    child is still alive and waits for the correct termination code.
    The PID of zero comes about because the '\' characters in the
    user status make a mess of the returned jobinfo which has '\'
    separated fields.
    
    The obvious workaround is to not use the '\' character in the
    user status field
    

Local fix

  • do not use the \ backslash
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    SERVER
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    The user status for a job is not documented as having a
    restriction on the characters that can be used, however '\' is
    problematic as it is used to separate a number of entries in the
    status list returned from a repository call
    ****************************************************************
    RECOMMENDATION:
    Fixed in release 8.2
