More info on HP shutting down the Mass language labs -- apparently all activities are being transferred to CLL (Cupertino Language Lab). First mention of Cygnus in this thread that I've seen. ------- Forwarded Message Sender: email@example.com From: firstname.lastname@example.org To: email@example.com Date: Mon, 22 Dec 1997 08:25:47 -0800 Subject: WDB, a GDB-based debugger for HP-UX Path: cygnus.com!news.sgi.com!sdd.hp.com!apollo.hp.com!rehrauer From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Steve Rehrauer) Newsgroups: comp.sys.hp.hpux Subject: Re: WDB, a GDB-based debugger for HP-UX Date: 22 Dec 1997 14:28:50 GMT Organization: Hewlett-Packard Company, Chelmsford, MA Lines: 27 Message-ID: <email@example.com> References: <firstname.lastname@example.org> <34971415.4A4E@mmm.com> <67b email@example.com> <firstname.lastname@example.org> NNTP-Posting-Host: jurassic.ch.apollo.hp.com Xref: cygnus.com comp.sys.hp.hpux:77982 In <email@example.com>, Adrian Filipi-Martin says: > Hmmm.

Well, my communications with the Divine are a little more circumspect. :-) I'm guessing she's heard that the Chelmsford, MA site is being closed; its projects (including WDB) being transferred to our sister lab in Cupertino, CA; and inferring a long delay from those facts. In truth, the impact on WDB is unclear. The project has certainly not been cancelled, nor even put on hold! Feedback within HP has been clearly positive and supportive. There can't help but be some delays in the short-term, of course. But in the long-term, being physically closer to the other HP-UX language projects (to say nothing of Cygnus Solutions, the maintainers of GDB) can only be good for WDB, in my opinion.
