Where does it leave the "ptr" pointing to?

Indeed, they found an original new way to get it wrong. Please point out to them that the ptr is supposed to be advanced *past* the input. Not to the last character of the input.

Reported to my SCO contacts. However, I guarantee this won't be fixed in 7.1.4 (the next release), as it just went Gold.

Also, I suspect 7.1.3 and below have the bug, and are prevalent.

And, I just proved it on my 7.1.2 (AKA OpenUNIX 8.0.0) system:

$ cc -O -o test3 test3.c
$ ./test3
ptr=8049682, points to N
ptr=8049686, points to f
$ uname -a
OpenUNIX lerlsof 5 8.0.0 i386 x86at Caldera UNIX_SVR5
