While installing C, the procedure tells me to decompress the header files (if not I64).
How can I do this?
As far as I remember, the C installation offers to install reference copies of the header files (the C compiler itself works from text libraries).
If you want to mimic that behaviour:
- create directories SYS$COMMON:[DECC$LIB.REFERENCE.DECC$RTLDEF] and SYS$COMMON:[DECC$LIB.REFERENCE.SYS$STARLET_C]
- list all modules from SYS$LIBRARY:DECC$RTLDEF.TLB and SYS$LIBRARY:SYS$STARLET_C.TLB using $LIBRARY/LIST tlb_filename
- for each module in the text libraries do $LIBRARY/EXTRACT=module/OUTPUT=dev:[dir]module.H tlb_filename
I could probably hack together some DCL to do automate the process (in fact, I've done this once).
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.
