Local fix

  • N/A
    

Problem summary

  • PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    During a non-default installation (NDI) a script is generated
    to run the c++filt tool in the ./bin directory.  For legacy
    reasons, in the generated script a call is made to uname to
    build a string value that is now unused.  Repeated calls to
    c++filt may have slower performance because of this.
    
    USERS AFFECTED:
    XL C++ users with NDI installations.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The generation of the uname call was removed.
    

Temporary fix
