I believe that MATCH rule call actually returned an empty list no
matter what your model command returned. Try writing it like this:
if [ os.name ] = HPUX
if [ MATCH "^(9000/)" : [ SHELL "model" ] ]
type SHARED_LIB : sl : LIB ;
type SHARED_LIB : so : LIB ;
I believe MATCH rule returns a list of strings found at locations
marked using parentheses in your given regex. Since you gave no
parenthised of the expression - nothing was getting returned.
Also, I have not looked the the file you plan to insert this into,
but could your if-logic perhaps be missing setting the .so extension for
HP-UX machines that are not PA-RISC?
Hope this helps.
