I downloaded the unzup software for alph vms and when i tried to @unzip from the directory it is in dka0:[000000.users.prk] prk is my user director on my system. It gives me the following error %DCL-E-OPENIN, error opening ZKD�� as input
-RMS-F-SYN, file specification syntax error
%DCL-W-IVVERB, unrecognized command verb - check validity and spelling
can someone help point me the right direction or state a solution
here is the mistake i was making found it with in the help file form unzip it self. If i typed "run unzip.exe" it would run but when i asked it to unzip a file it gave an error to many parameters. here is the fix
unzip :== $dev:[dir]unzip.exe for in which in my system would translate to
unzip :==$dka0:[000000.users.-prk]unzip.exe you are supposed tp put the in the login.com file so this happens on boot up.. the is to "define foreign command systeml"
it seems if i play long enough i will figure it out. but i panic put in on here then i have to post my own answers so please bare with me. I also hope that this helps some other noobie so they can continue to learn and not give up Like i have so many times i have installed vms.
malmberg December 12 2017 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.
