View .PFY files on UNIX

Technote (FAQ)


Question

Can you create .PFY files using IBM Rational PurifyPlus on Windows and view them on UNIX?

Cause

The warning message is not quite clear from the following usage on AIX.

# purify -view hello.pfy
Purify viewer: Warning: File hello.pfy is not a Purify view-file.
Usage: purify -view [-flags] {appname | file.pv ...}
You must specify either an appname or one or more file.pv arguments.

Answer

You can not open or view .PFY files created from Rational Purify for Windows on UNIX.
