Unfortunately, UNIX has no undelete command. Recovery procedure
involves a device-level copy (i.e., dd) to a scratch area, then
writing some custom code to identify the starting block of the file,
and ending-block (or size) of the file. Then you will still have to do
some data massaging.
There are companies out there that will be glad to help for a fee.
They advertise in the back of the HP trade rags.
(Probably not what you wanted to hear, but to add insult to injury,
may I suggest you ask your employer to send SOMEBODY to an HP-UX
sysadmin class within your organization)
