PPWIZARD IN UNIX

These are things you need to be aware of:

These Work!

I either test under or have reason to believe that PPWIZARD works under:

  1. BeOS
  2. Linux
    Known to work with RedHat:
  3. FreeBSD
  4. Mac OS X
  5. SunOS
    Tested on SunOS 5.8 (64 bit enabled) using GNU "find" version 4.1 (64 bit) in place of Sun's regular "find". If you do not wish to change the "find" command (which appears to be very non-standard) you could use a /Hook of "GetFileList".
  6. z/VM 3.1 (mainframe) running Linux
    Tested on Red Hat Linux for S390 ver 7.2 running on an IBM G5.

You will need to obtain the Regina source code and compile it (there are now binaries in Red Hat package manager format). All my testing used the generated "REXX" program. The source can be obtained from my http://dennisbareis.com/regina.htm.

As with all operating systems, I am keen to fix any problems. Unix is a bigger unknown to me with all its different shells, etc.

If you have a problem, please use the "-debug" command line switch and redirect the command's output, along with the name of the shell you are using and any other relevant details (all zipped please). I will typically have a fix for you in a few days and maybe a workaround even faster.

Status Under BeOS

Looks like Unix to PPWIZARD. No known issues.

Status Under Macintosh OS X (Darwin)

Looks like Unix to PPWIZARD. No known issues.

Status Under AIX

May or may not work (probably does), regina is available. Anyone using it on AIX?

Status Under HP-UX

May or may not work (probably does), regina is available. Anyone using it on HP-UX?

Status Under QNX

May or may not work, regina is available. Anyone using it on QNX?

Status Under TSO

I have reorganised PPWIZARD's internals and done other things to make it easier to port (and have taken care of EBCDIC/ASCII issues) in an attempt to get it to work on REXX370 on OS390/zOS (Unix environment - omvs?).

It will not work as is, I need help (it may be close). I have a few stubs (e.g. "FileQueryExists()" that need filling out.


email me  any feedback, additional information or corrections.
See this page online (look for updates)
