my original question:

> given two files /var/tmp/Ex???? and /var/tmp/Rx???? (both
> with the same pid number), how does one reconstruct the
> saved file?

and the answer is:
run /usr/lib/expreserve -a # sunos 4
or /usr/lib/expreserve -a # solaris 2

after which the user can do
        vi -r # get the filename
        vi -r filename # recover the filename

i didn't try this option:
        /usr/lib/expreserve < /var/tmp/Ex?????

vi(1) says:
vi -L Lists all the List the names of all files saved as the result
        of an editor or system crash.
