Author ZLIB 1.2.8 and Curl 7.32 now available at VMS-PORTS

Today the CURL project at http://curl.haxx.se/ released curl 7.32.

The VMSPORTS team is pleased to announce that ZLIB 1.2.8 and Curl/libcurl 7.32 PCSI kits are now available for OpenVMS at https://sourceforge.net/projects/vms-ports/

These kits are compatible with GNV but do not require it.

If you do have GNV installed, make sure that the GNV$STARTUP procedure is run so that the [vms$common.gnv...] directories are visible.

You can find PCSI kits for these port at:



ftp://encompasserve.org/gnv/ in the axp0830, i640840
or vax0730 directories.

The ZLIB 1.2.8 kit is upward compatible with both the previous JEM ZLIB PCSI kits and with the PCSI kits produced by Jean-Francois Pieronne.

As the producer is different, you have to uninstall the older JEM ZLIB package before installing the VMSPORTS ZLIB package.

This provides the libz library as a set of shared images, with both exact case and upper case symbols.

Thanks to Harmut Becker providing a patch to Macro32, we can now generate exact case transfer vectors on VAX.

The customizations that I did were the creation of the shared images and PCSI kitting procedures. The rest of the source is from the original ZLIB package.

The CURL 7.32 kit contains LIBCURL shared image and requires both the ZLIB 1.2.8 kit and the current CPQ (VAX Only) or HP OpenSSL kit.

The release notes describe how to obtain the OpenSSL kits from HP and how to use the HP OpenSSL 1.4 kit on a system with out replacing the older HP OpenSSL 1.3 kit.

For this reason, the PCSI installation procedure does not enforce a requirement for the HP OpenSSL version.

The Curl 7.32 kit contains fixes for the long standing form post bug and the upload files bug from using the Curl utility.

I have not run the curl test suite at this time, some work needs to be done to get it to run on VMS.

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?

The openvms disks question is frequently answered in the forums, and is not something to ask about in the shout box.
