We have actually gotton this far with ooRexx on AIX. The problem is that, once installed, it dies on invocation. Have you been able to solve this problem? If so, please supply us with a patch.


I was able to execute the sample scripts...

Hello,
I managed to compile ooRex 3.0.0 on AIX 5.3

- IBM vacpp 6.0

- static libraries

---------- snip -----------------
#!/usr/bin/ksh

# Changes
# =======
# ./samples/unix/api/callrexx ->  link error / had no time to dig in;
disabled build
# changed all // comments in /* */
# QueueCommand.cpp -> deleted line #define  SYSREXXSAA
# SUBCOMCommand.cpp -> deleted line #define  SYSREXXSAA

export CC=xlc_r
