/****************************** findfile ******************************/

NB:  If  the macro DVI  is defined  when this  file  is compiled, then
additional code will be executed  in isfile() to  optionally trace the
lookup attempts.

If the macro TEST is defined at compile-time, a test main program will
be compiled  which takes paths and  names from stdin,  and echos their
existence and expansion to stdout.


Search for a file  in a list of  directories specified in the  pathlist,
and if found,  return a pointer  to an internal  buffer (overwritten  on
subsequent  calls)  containing  a   full  filename;  otherwise,   return

This version has been extended to use the file cache stored in an
optional hash table pointed to by fsf_table.  If the table exists, and
a match is found there, then it is assumed to be a valid file name and
the operating system is not consulted at all, nor is the path list

Note that this permits finding files whose directories are not
specified in the path list.  You can view this as both a bug and a
feature.  Since the user can control the contents of the FSMAPFILE
file, and can suppress it entirely, the feature outweighs the bug.

Filename caching is a valuable economization because file system
lookups are relatively time consuming.  Of course, if the cache is
incorrect, a returned filename may not exist, and a later open attempt
will fail; that should alert to user to update the FSMAPFILE file.

The pathlist is expected to contain directories separated by one (or
more) of the characters in the system-dependent SEP_COMP string
constant.  The search is restricted to the directories in the path
list; unlike PC DOS's PATH variable, the current directory is NOT
searched unless it is included in the path list.

For example,

      findfile(".:/usr/local/lib:/tmp", "foo.bar")

will check for the files


in that order.  The character which normally separates a directory  from
a file name will  be supplied automatically  if it is  not given in  the
path list.  Thus, the example above could have been written


Since multiple path separators are ignored, the following are also

      findfile("./ : /usr/local/lib/ : /tmp/","foo.bar")
      findfile("./   /usr/local/lib/   /tmp/","foo.bar")

For VAX VMS, additional support is  provided for rooted logical names,
and names  that   look like  rooted  names, but  are not.  Normally, a
logical name  in a path  will look name  "LOGNAME:",  and a  file like
"FILE.EXT"; combining them gives "LOGNAME:FILE.EXT".  A rooted logical
name is created by a DCL command like

$ define /translation=(concealed,terminal) LOGNAME DISK:[DIR.]

In such a case, VMS requires that what  follows the logical name begin
with a directory, e.g.  the file is "[SUB]FILE.EXT".  Concatenation of
path with name gives "LOGNAME:[SUB]FILE.EXT", which is acceptable.  To
refer   to  a   file in   the   directory   DISK:[DIR],  one    writes
"LOGNAME:[000000]FILE.EXT", where 000000  is the magic  name of a root

If, however, the logical  name looks  like a  rooted name,  but wasn't
defined  with  "/translation=(concealed,terminal)", then VMS  will not
recognize it.   [That  is an easy mistake to  make, and  issuing a DCL
"show logical LOGNAME" command will NOT reveal the error.]  Similarly,
if the logical name  looks like a  directory name, and the file begins
with a directory name, VMS will not recognize that either, even though
there is no ambiguity about what is meant.

We therefore make the  following reductions after  an  initial attempt
fails.  First, expand the logical name, skipping further processing if
that fails.  Then, reduce the concatenation as follows:

      [DIR.]FILE.EXT          -->     [DIR]FILE.EXT
      [DIR.][SUB]FILE.EXT     -->     [DIR.SUB]FILE.EXT
      [DIR][SUB]FILE.EXT      -->     [DIR.SUB]FILE.EXT

If  the logical name  points to a  chain of names,  the standard VMS C
run-time library getenv()  will return  only the first  in  the chain.
Chained logical names were added in VMS version  4.0 without operating
system support  to retrieve all members  of the  chain.   The only way
I've been able to  find the subsequent  members is to spawn a  process
that runs a VMS DCL SHOW LOGICAL command, and then parse its output!

Under ATARI TOS, PC DOS, and UNIX,  environment variable  substitution
is supported as follows.  If the initial lookup fails, the filename is
checked for the presence of an initial tilde.   If one is  found, then
if   the  next  character  is   not  alphanumeric or  underscore (e.g.
~/foo.bar),  the  tilde  is  replaced  by ${HOME};     otherwise (e.g.
~user/foo.bar), the tilde is stripped and the following name is looked
up using getpwnam() to find the login directory of that user name, and
that  string is substituted  for the ~name.   Then,  the  filename  is
scanned for  $NAME  or ${NAME} sequences,  where NAME conforms  to the
regular expression  [A-Za-z_]+[A-Za-z0-9_]*, and environment  variable
substitution  is performed for  NAME.  Finally,  the   lookup is tried
again.  If it  is successful,  the  name[] string  is replaced by  the
substituted name, so it can be later used to open the file.
