$Dir on Solaris

If you are one of the few Solaris users and use the ‘Dir$’ function to read directories in your administrative routines to process databases in a directory. Be aware that it doesn’t work for databases over 2GBs in size. They’re omitted from list.

We PMRed it. But it’s already been closed. Apparently it’s a code limitation and won’t be getting fixed. I expect it will be all that 32-bit Solaris code we’re still having to use. Don’t you just love having your hardware tied down by software?
