syslogd

Post by issinoho » Tue Feb 13, 2024 8:14 am

Has anyone successfully ported/compiled the freeware syslogd package available from the VMS Software Freeware pages to x86?
Here's what I get when I try a naive compile...

Code: Select all

@build_syslogd

        return;
........^
%CC-W-NORETURNVAL, The function "main" returns a value, but no value is given in
 this return statement.
at line number 389 in file DKA100:[TEMP.syslogd.src]logger.c;1

    return;
....^
%CC-W-NORETURNVAL, The function "main" returns a value, but no value is given in
 this return statement.
at line number 431 in file DKA100:[TEMP.syslogd.src]logger.c;1
%ILINK-F-OPENIN, error opening SYS$COMMON:[SYSLIB]ucx$ipc.olb; as input
-RMS-E-FNF, file not found
%DCL-W-SKPDAT, image data (records not beginning with "$") ignored

True.

But I think Perl for VMS has been in good shape for a very long time.

And it is certainly available for Alpha and Itanium:

Ah - VSI also got them:
