smiley How mouch precise the implementation of OpenVMS for itanium processor? I mean the bit field instruction called by C is very critical for our application. And implementing it on intel architecture is not an easy task. Exists some instruction emulation on C lib to do this task?

smiley Othersides anybody know why force HP the OpenVMS to guest of virtual machine instead of real hardware. Maybe the emulated hardware help to handle resources of computer?

I'm not sure what you are asking. The C compiler for OpenVMS I64 works just fine.

OpenVMS can run on real hardware (HP Integrity server, Alphaserver, VAX) or as a guest on HPVM - your choice.

Exchause me, sort explanation:

smiley The bit filed handling is very critical in every platform. Even if the code writed in C the C lib itself use mostly many of assembler "tricks" to handle bitfield. One of the VAX processsor advanatge was the precise bitfield support. If the VMS moved to Intel architecture more problem can occured here because the different processor register and instruction structure.

At practice you can image the file contain 1-32bit wide bitfields in mixed sequence.

smiley So my question was anybody have experience (good or bad) with bitfield on VMS/itanium platform?

There are instruction sequences that are used to implement bit field operations such that the user(you) won't see the difference. What you are really asking is whether or not the same functions are available and the answer is yes. You should be able to take you C program and recompile and run it on the I64 platform without significant change. Without seeing the actual code, I cannot say no changes will be required, but for the most part, the code should work as is.

Probably. More people hang out on the comp.os.vms newsgroup.

HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?

Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?
