Thank you for the review. Agree, these scripts are guide on how to write 
scripts. On the other hand, if the user tries to run these scripts on 
the latest kernel +
supported makedumpfile for that release, they would fail. These scripts 
are outdated,
when run on latest kernel due to data structure changes. I can take up the
responsibility of maintaining eppic scripts against kernel changes for 
every makedumpfile
