gawkon VMS POSIX
Ignore the instructions above, although `vms/gawk.hlp' should still be made available in a help library. The source tree should be unpacked into a container file subsystem rather than into the ordinary VMS filesystem. Make sure that the two scripts, `configure' and `vms/posix-cc.sh', are executable; use `chmod +x' on them if necessary. Then execute the following two commands:
psx> CC=vms/posix-cc.sh configure psx> make CC=c89 gawk
The first command constructs files `config.h' and `Makefile' out
of templates, using a script to make the C compiler fit
expectations. The second command compiles and links
the C compiler directly; ignore any warnings from
make about being
unable to redefine
configure takes a very long
time to execute, but at least it provides incremental feedback as it runs.
This has been tested with VAX/VMS V6.2, VMS POSIX V2.0, and DEC C V5.2.
gawk works like any other shell utility. Unlike
the normal VMS port of
gawk, no special command-line manipulation is
needed in the VMS POSIX environment.
