Qwest (now CenturyLink) used to have a few Purify licenses (really OLD versions
though). I think they were all Windows licenses or work on ancient OSes like
Slowlaris 7 or RHEL 3.2. But I'll check. Even if I find one, using it
for ESAPI for C++
might not be feasible because of ancient C++ compiler, etc. IIRC, they licensed
them to particular dev servers and have to be used there. We do very little C++
anymore (all maintenance; no new development), so if we do have any Purify
licenses, there's only a handful of them left. I do know an unfortunate fellow
that sits close to me that has to work with C++ so perhaps he knows. But I
wouldn't hold my breath.
