The result of a subroutine call cannot be looked up directly in a database map. Consider this RHS of a rule:
$( uucp $>96 $1 $)
Here, the intention is to pass
$1 to rule set 96 and then
to look up the result in the
uucp map. Instead, the literal
value 96 and the value in
$1 are looked up together and fail first.
$1 is passed to rule set 96, and the result of that
subroutine call becomes the result of the RHS.
%s of IDA sendmail databases will not work as
is with V8 sendmail. To make it work, replace it with a
%1 throughout the IDA source file, then reverse the
keys and values, and finally recreate the database file.
This conversion can easily be automated with sed(1) or awk(1).
If you are running a Solaris 2.4 or earlier release of Sun's operating
system, your database files should not live on
tmpfs mounted file systems.
File locking was not implemented for
tmpfs until Solaris 2.5.
Avoid assuming that all
K command switches mean the same thing
for all classes. The ad hoc nature of class submissions by outsiders
makes that assumption perilous.
Not all initialization errors or lookup errors are reported. For some
of them you will see an indication of an error only if you use the
-d38.2 debugging switch (see Section 37.5.128, -d38.2).
