HP-UX Patch naming conventions

Unlike other operating system, HPUX maintains specific nomenclature for every patch that is released.

Below is list of prefixes for every patch category and its short description.

PHCO_: refers to a patch for commands and libraries

PHKL_: refers to a kernel patch

PHNE_: refers to a networking patch

PHSS_: refers to a patch for HP-UX subsystems

Every patch is then post-fixed with unique number that identifies a specific patch.
