Hi,

As I told Rick on the phone yesterday, I've now got
CIM MOF classes for tables (we're not using them)
and rows (we are) and properties for scalar/columnar
objects and textual conventions that include:

- Description
- ValueMap (enums integers)
- Values (enum labels)
- MappingStrings (formatted ptr to Printer MIB object)
- CIM MOF type and property name declaration

I'm working on adding support for string size limits
(MINLEN, MAXLEN) and integer ranges (MINVALUE, 
MAXVALUE).

Then I'll machine-generate one MOF for all Type 2
textual conventions (IANA-PRINTER-MIB) and one MOF
for Type 1 TCs and table/row/scalar/columnar objects
(Printer-MIB) in RFC 3805.

Then I'll cut-and-paste and complete my action item
to write the CIM_PrintOutputTray class (with the
exploded five SubUnitStatus properties).

Cheers,
- Ira

Hi,

Yesterday, I got the first clean, warning-free, compile
in some months of my MIB translation tool.  

ValueMap and Values clauses for all textual conventions 
and simple objects in Printer MIB came out correctly.

Considerable work remains to be done, but there's now
some light at the end of the tunnel.

Cheers,
- Ira
