Software management HP/UX 9.00

Hello, all!

I'm newbie in HP/UX and at my job I'm dealing with HP/UX 9.00. Due this OS is an old one, I couldn't find some info, concretely, about software management on it. Can you please help me?

At least viewing, installing/removing... I mean analogue to swlist etc in later versions of HP/UX. Indeed, I can view /usr/bin directory, but that's not the way... Also, I need to update some software.

What are you calling software? Part of HPUX? or third party software (e.g. ORACLE)
In this release of OS there is a distinction between S700 and S800 of HP-UX, and they dont have the same tools...
What box are you on? as S700 or S800, and what release of 9.XX,
If it is a series 700, you can do alot with sam

Mostly third party, that's a machine where students studying Unix, and my job is to maintain this computer. I'm not interested actually in deep learning of this OS, for my own purposes I'm using FreeBSD 7.0.

Thanks a lot for the advice, I'll see, what I can get from sam (that's 700 series machine).

Since it is really old (beginning 90'ies) do you have the material to bring the system up again in case of crash?
I you dont, do you have a DAT device for it?
What model is it ?

Self-modifying code is easier to read and maintain because the instructions in the source program listing are always the instructions that will be executed.
True or False?
