You did not provide any specifics, but my guess is that your situation involved serializing/deserializing across endianness, between Linux on a little-endian architecture and Solaris on a big-endian architecture, and that the script was a workaround which swapped bytes in a data file.

Perhaps improperly deserialized data is a factor in the OP's issue.

Hi Maverick,

We could have checked so many areas including bit size, endianness, etc. But it is quite surprising that the program runs fine in linux env few times and suddenly throws error intermittently. we are trying to use "VALGRIND" tool now. If you have any other leads, keep me posted.

Thanks
