Hi Michael,

        Thanks for using the PRF.

>>     ACE VERSION: 5.4

>>     HOST MACHINE and OPERATING SYSTEM:
>>         HP rp8400 HP-UX 11iv1
>> 
>>     TARGET MACHINE and OPERATING SYSTEM, if different from HOST:
>>     COMPILER NAME AND VERSION (AND PATCHLEVEL):
>>         aCC
>> 
>>     CONTENTS OF $ACE_ROOT/ace/config.h:

>>     CONTENTS OF $ACE_ROOT/include/makeinclude/platform_macros.GNU
>> (unless
>>     this isn't used in this case, e.g., with Microsoft Visual C++):

>>     AREA/CLASS/EXAMPLE AFFECTED:
>>         ace/CLASSIX
>> 
>>     DOES THE PROBLEM AFFECT:
>>         OTHER? (Licensing)
>> 
>>     SYNOPSIS:
>>         Nearly all the files in ace/CLASSIX have a copyright in them

>>         Example:
>>         CLASSIX_Dgram_Mcast.cpp:
>>         //     Copyright 1998 Nokia Telecommunications

>>     SAMPLE FIX/WORKAROUND:
>>         Get the copyrights out of the code, or put special permissions
