  • Greetings,

    See the conversation between Moritz and myself in the "Help" forum.

    I'm trying to get ooRexx installed on SunOS 8 and 10 boxes with SPARC processors. I understand they need to be compiled as 32-bit applications, but that much information isn't getting us anywhere.

    I am able to issue 'rexx -v' successfully with the current installation:

    stevej:13> /usr/bin/rexx -v
    Open Object Rexx Interpreter Version 3.1.1 for SUNOS

    Syntax is "rexx [-v] filename [arguments]".
    stevej:14>

    However, the following program bombs out easily:

    !/usr/bin/rexx

    Numeric Digits 20
    Interpret 'Say' arg(1)

    stevej:15> lsay '10 / 3'
    Bus error (core dumped)

    For some reason, gdb doesn't like the format of the core file...

    This system is SunOS 2.8, but we also have 2.10 boxes in the same group which would need to run the interpreter as well.

    Could anyone provide some guidance on how to build this properly?

    Thanks, Steve

     
    • Hmmm... I seem to be read-only on that list... maybe because I'm not logged in...

      Thanks, I'll figure it out...
