Alpha-Level Open-Source Software and POSIX.1 support for VOS

Last updated 2009-05-31.

This directory contains open-source software packages that have been ported to the Stratus® VOS operating system using the alpha-level version of POSIX.1 support that is available for download from this page. Software in this stage is not fully operational; not fully tested; and not fully documented. However, because some people may be interested in trying it out, it has been made available on this site. This software is available in versions that should work on VOS Release 12.4.0 or later, and on any architecture.

It is up to you to determine the usefulness of the software in this directory to your company. Please contact the individual authors for further information, or to report bugs.

Look for the "new" tag to find files that were uploaded in the last 3 months. Look for the "updated" tag to find files that were revised in the last 3 months.

Files ending in ".save.evf.gz" are bundled files; here are instructions on how to unbundle them. IMPORTANT: Be sure to transfer bundled files to your system in "binary" mode! They will get corrupted if you transfer them in "ascii" mode.
