If you have ever tried to use POSIX-based programs to process VOS structured files, you may have encountered some restrictions or seen some behavior that you didn’t understand. In this post I will try to explain what’s going on.
Did you miss the webinar? Well, we have the video right here for you! Watch an overview of the steps that you can follow to port open-source code to the Stratus OpenVOS operating system. I review the OpenVOS POSIX environment, explain how to find and download open-source packages, discusses the process for building and installing [...]
I recently fielded a question from a VOS customer who wanted to know how to get his shared virtual memory regions to align between his legacy non-POSIX programs and his new, POSIX-based programs. This customer had used the create_data_object command to create several different shared virtual memory regions. He had then used a bind control file [...]
If you have used the POSIX shell (“bash”) on VOS, then you know that you can run various POSIX commands and use all of the nifty tricks that bash provides, such as input and output redirection. But did you know that you can use these same features with many VOS commands? For example, if you would like [...]

When we first started offering these ports, most VOS customers were using Continuum (HP PA-RISC) systems. Stratus still has many customers on these systems, but we also have many customers on the newer V Series (Intel IA32) systems. I have [...]
