X86 Macro compiler/LLVM error

Post by cct » Mon Apr 01, 2024 2:20 pm

Trying to compile some macro code that was ported from VAX to Alpha, and worked on I64, and 3 files are coming up with:

LLVM ERROR: invalid symbol redefinition

Not that I know diddly about macro, but what does this mean?
I have been looking at the latest Vax Macro reference manual and it doesn't reference LLVM at all. Are there any suitable references available?

Also is there any rule fo thumb for what command line to compile old macro on X86?

My web-site is mainly a guide/blog on how to build specific open source software on OpenVMS.

But you are always free to ask for a binary. grep.exe is now available from the website.

I normally prefer the native "SEARCH" when searching in files

Code: Select all

   Or create a tool to download dependencies automatically.  Something
like, say:


   The fundamental problem seems to be that much open-source software is
developed for GNU/Linux environments where tools exist to handle these
tasks, while VMS lacks them.
