Migrating Suprtool to HP-UX
Recently I was asked why Suprtool for HP-UX doesn't work or even exist, when our web site had references to the product all over. I was incredulous, but apparently someone had been saying that Suprtool for HP-UX did not exist!!!!

Merge is a Qedit command that matches lines in the current workfile with lines from a "merge" file, based
