I'm a little confused. I can certainly create a temporary POSIX file and
view it with listfile ;temp, as donna explained.

But I cannot create a temporary POSIX file in a dummy directory. CIERROR
-383, a warning, simply means the temp file was not found, for whatever
reason.

A cierror 273 on a build means the file was not built, for whatever reason.
What is important to get is the FSERROR. I my case, I got a CIERROR 273
when I created a temp POSIX file in a dummy directory, but the FSERROR is
457, which is critical.

Just do a showjcw and see what the fserror is and let us know.

Then why is my code not working? --


Back to my original posting --

<< In my program I am purging a file in the temp domain and then building it
again in the temp domain (possibly has different parms on the build
statement, that is why I am purging the old one first)

>-0383>-0007>PURGE

/DEV/PUB/mama/papa/baby/bear/porridge/.sh_history,TEMP;NOCONFIRM

The -383 is telling me the purge failed because the file does not exist in
the temp domain, which is just fine.

So further down in the logic I am building the file in the temp domain.
The build command fails.

Works just fine on files in the MPE file space but obviously isn't working
in the HFS POSiX space:



<
>+0279>+0106>BUILD

/DEV/PUB/mama/papa/baby/bear/porridge/.sh_history;TEMP;CODE=2700;REC=-8192,0
001,V,ASCII
;DISC=147483647;ULABEL=027


<
>>Build of file "!" failed. (CIERR 279)


<<

The +279 is the code returned when the file already exists in the temp
domain.

Can anyone tell me why this isn't working in the POSiX area but works fine
in the MPE area?
