Sorry for off topic mail, but this is one of handful mail groups I'm
in and one of two the best to ask for this particular thing.

Does AIX's cpp define some nice constant to recognize I'm compiling on
AIX ? ``#ifdef unix'' works for any other system I've tried, but it
fails miserably on AIX ;-( After I define symbol ``unix'' explicitly, all
my code compiles cleanly, the problem is just to find out if I have to do

It claims it's ``AIX version 4'' if I telnet on it.

Thanks a lot for any help.
