David,

ok I understand the uid on the file stuff.

ps -ef shows two processes running. xterm and foo2. I'm not trying to
attach to xterm but to foo2. Has IRIX given foo2 root because xterm (a root
task) has started it?

If yes, I'm going to need to get around this and my admin is reluctant to
give me the root password. Any way to get around this without being root?
I really need to debug these processes with the debugger.

I don't remember this being an issue on AIX.

thanks

Duane
