Extension Limitations under DOS =============================== On DOS/Windows 9X systems the file name extensions of the output files, like `.tab.c', that may be used depend on the file system in use. The plain DOS file system has limited file name length, does not allow the use of a set of certain illicit characters and does not allow more than a single dot in the file name. The DJGPP port of `bison' will detect at runtime if (LFN) long file name support is available or not. LFN support will be available in a DOS session under Windows 9X and successors. Windows NT 4.0 needs a special LFN driver (`ntlfn08b.zip') or later available at any simtelnet mirror in the /v2misc dir) for proper LFN support in a DOS session. If LFN support is available the DJGPP port of `bison' will use the standard POSIX file name extensions of the output files. If LFN support is not available, then the DJGPP port of `bison' will use DOS specific file name extensions. This table summarizes the used extensions: LFN extension (Win9X) SFN extension (plain DOS) `.tab.c' `_tab.c' `.tab.h' `_tab.h' `.tab.cpp' `_tab.cpp' `.tab.hpp' `_tab.hpp' `.output' `.out' `.stype.h' `.sth' `.guard.c' `.guc'
