Any IDS version that ends in:

TC  - WinNT version
UC  - 32bit UNIX version
FC  - 32bit compiled on a 64bit OS
HC  - full 64bit version

The "C" part is a release bit. Typically "A" is alpha,
"B" is beta, "C" is the first customer shipment, and
"D" may be a full release.

As for "F" versus "H", you got them reversed, although
"H" is a bit more complicated than your note. An "H"
release might be 32-bit HP/UX 11, when there's a "U"
release that goes to 32-bit HP/UX 10.20, and the "F"
release will be for 64-bit on HP/UX 11. You won't see
"H" unless there's two different 32-bit versions.
