VSI PASCAL 6.3-143 files missing files on kit installation

Post by nortonti » Sat Jan 27, 2024 4:15 pm

Hi,

I'm trying to install VSI Pascal Compiler V6.3-143 and received error message during installation (see attached image).

The file PASCAL063.C is empty and it´s not a valid saveset backup file.

I execute "backup/list pascal063.c/save" command and I can not to see any files inside of saveset neither the stamp of backup command executed for create the saveset.

The others saveset PASCAL063.A, PASCAL063.B and PASCAL063.D from kit downloaded from VSI are right and I can to see the files inside of each saveset using "backup/list savesetname/save" command.

Thank you.

   Same here.  The installation worked, too:

V90 $ pascal /version
VSI Pascal x86-64 V6.3-143 (GEM 50XC4) on OpenVMS x86_64 V9.2-2  


> The file PASCAL063.C is empty and it's not a valid saveset backup
> file.

   Empty would be invalid, but around here, it's not big, but it's not
empty:

V90 $ dire /size PASCAL063.%

Directory V90$DKA0:[prod.v9r2s1]

PASCAL063.A;1               360
PASCAL063.B;1            151938
PASCAL063.C;1                90
PASCAL063.D;1               198

Total of 4 files, 152586 blocks.

   Try the UnZip operation again?  I'd expect an error message from
UnZip if the archive were damaged.  Otherwise, my guess would be that
something bad happened to the file after UnZip extracted it.

Is anybody able to get useful information from the X86VMS-PASCAL-V0603-143-1-RNOTES.PDF that's embedded in the zip file? I'm aware that there is PASCAL063.RELEASE_NOTES text file, this reply was intended to report a possible issue with the pdf.

   I had no trouble using (an old) XPDF 3.02 on an IA64 system under
V8.4-2L3 or Preview on a Mac.  Copy+paste results differ, but they look
about the same:

VSI Pascal V6.3-143 for OpenVMS x86-64 Systems
                Release Notes
               21 December 2023
[...]

Arne,

I see in result of your backup/list command that was block size defined is equal to 9000 (not 32256).

I'm downloaded zip file from VSI using Windows, then extracted files from zip and after transfer for OpenVMS system.

Then I change the block size to 32256 for all saveset files, but if PASCAL063.C is different from 32256, can be the problem.
The command used was "$ SET FILE /ATTR=(RFM:FIX,MRS:32256,LRL:32256,ORG:SEQ,RAT:NONE) pascal063.c"

Can you to execute DIR/FULL PASCAL063.C and confirm the block size for us ?

Thank you.
José Norton

José,

is there a particular reason why you don't transfer the ZIP file to the VMS system and UNZIP it there?
FYI, VSI delivers an UNZIP.EXE in SYS$COMMON:[SYSHLP.UNSUPPORTED.UNZIP]

HTH,
Martin

Or use the command procedure from

https://github.com/fernandezcuesta/smsc ... IBUTES.COM

to correct the file attributes.

or use "/repair" backup qualifier :

$ backup/list save_set /save/repair

---

/REPAIR

Helps BACKUP to reset the RMS file attribute of a save set file
which gets corrupted when a save set is transferred via HTTP
or copied using FTP or compressed and uncompressed using ZIP.

You can use the /REPAIR qualifier to repair the save set attributes.
