A problem arose on vxWorks with conveting the host name to lower case.
On vxWorks the target name of the boot params is made the host name.
It is NOT converted to lower case.

Andrew suggests that aslibRoutines.c be changed to use

strcasecmp instead of strcmp when comparing host names.

Discussion:

I find strcasecmp on linux and solaris and is defined in header strings.h.
NOTE NOT string.c

vxWorks does not have it.
I dont know about win32 or darwin.

This if we do this it sounds like we should define

epicsStrings.h

and provide an implmentation for os/default and os/vxWorks.
I dont know about win32 or darwin.

thoughts anyone?

Marty
