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.
I wrote the following remarks about conducting effective pre-production testing for my “VOS Corner” column in the Stratus User Group newsletter for December, 1996. They are still relevant today, almost 13 years later.
I enjoy meeting our VOS and OpenVOS customers. Customers ask me where we are headed with VOS/OpenVOS, and colleagues ask me where we should go with VOS/OpenVOS. I’ve often said that I get my best ideas from our customers.
Recently a number of VOS and OpenVOS customers have switched from using the standard ftp client (ftp.pm) to the secure ftp client (sftp.pm).
I have just uploaded a port of the GNU indent command to the VOS anonymous FTP site. This command adds or removes whitespace from a C program to make the appearance conform to a set of standards.
I’ve been doing some research into handling XML (Extensible Markup Language) data on VOS and OpenVOS, and I thought it would be useful to share what I learned with a wider audience.
Customers often ask me how to get Stratus to add a feature to an existing product, or how to get Stratus interested in offering an additional product or service.
I’ve been fielding questions from VOS customers who are considering upgrading to OpenVOS Release 17.0 and they are all asking the same question – what’s new, and why should I upgrade?
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.
Stratus will be celebrating its 30th birthday next month!
