# FWIW, the v2b26 package fetched at 10.Nov 1523 MST compiled cleanly on hp-ux 10.20, as delivered. (Thanks for the -Ae compiler flag, Kent.)

Good, it worked. I was wondering if it would get picked up. :) Great!

# There was one complaint, something I haven't seen before, and that I don't understand. Maybe somebody on the list recognizes it? In the string of calls to cc, I got:


# Expect 13 shift/reduce conflicts.
# yacc getdate.y
# conflicts: 13 shift/reduce
# cc -c -Ae getdate.c

This is due to the yacc grammer in getdate.y. In earlier versions we did not have any yacc parsing required. With the addition of getdate.y we do. I put the warning message

   Expect 13 shift/reduce conflicts.

in when someone said there was problems with the build. This is normal. The actual header in getdate.y states

   **  Originally written by Steven M. Bellovin <> while
   **  at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  Later tweaked by
   **  a couple of people on Usenet.  Completely overhauled by Rich $alz
   **  <> and Jim Berets <> in August, 1990;
-> **  This grammar has 13 shift/reduce conflicts.
   **  This code is in the public domain and has no copyright.

This is not an error but normal output from the yacc parsing.

# Running a preliminary set of test messages shows everything working as expected.


Thanks Tom.
