gawk: VMS Compilation

 
 B.3.2.1 Compiling 'gawk' on VMS
 ...............................
 
 To compile 'gawk' under VMS, there is a 'DCL' command procedure that
 issues all the necessary 'CC' and 'LINK' commands.  There is also a
 'Makefile' for use with the 'MMS' and 'MMK' utilities.  From the source
 directory, use either:
 
      $ @[.vms]vmsbuild.com
 
 or:
 
      $ MMS/DESCRIPTION=[.vms]descrip.mms gawk
 
 or:
 
      $ MMK/DESCRIPTION=[.vms]descrip.mms gawk
 
    'MMK' is an open source, free, near-clone of 'MMS' and can better
 handle ODS-5 volumes with upper- and lowercase file names.  'MMK' is
 available from <https://github.com/endlesssoftware/mmk>.
 
    With ODS-5 volumes and extended parsing enabled, the case of the
 target parameter may need to be exact.
 
    'gawk' has been tested under VAX/VMS 7.3 and Alpha/VMS 7.3-1 using
 Compaq C V6.4, and under Alpha/VMS 7.3, Alpha/VMS 7.3-2, and IA64/VMS
 8.3.  The most recent builds used HP C V7.3 on Alpha VMS 8.3 and both
 Alpha and IA64 VMS 8.4 used HP C 7.3.(1)
 
    ⇒VMS GNV for information on building 'gawk' as a PCSI kit that
 is compatible with the GNV product.
