Closed as program error.
When compiling .c files with dependency file generation, the dependency file is created with permission -rw-rw-rw by default, plus the effect of umask. For .cpp files, however, the files are always created as -rw-r--r--. This creates problems during software development collaboration, since people in the same group cannot write over the dependency files created by other people in the group. $ umask 0 $xlc_r -MF t1.d -qmakedep=gcc test.c $xlC_r -MF t2.d -qmakedep=gcc test.cpp $ll *.d -rw-rw-rw- t1.d -rw-r--r-- t2.d
Manually modify file permission using chmod command.
PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Dependency files for source compiled as C++ is created without write permissions for 'group' and 'other' USERS AFFECTED: Users of make dependency files requiring write permissions for 'group' or 'other' using an appropriate umask.
The permissions bits are now specified to be 0666 before application of the umask by the system.
