Last updated 2013-11-20.
The commands described on this page have been integrated into OpenVOS Release 17.0. Thus, if you are running this release, you do not need to download any of these files. The versions of the commands that are provided with OpenVOS Release 17.0 are fully-supported by Stratus Technologies; if you have any questions about them, please contact Stratus Customer Service.
This directory contains programs that can be used to compress and decompress VOS files, or can be used to convert a VOS file to a stream file while retaining its original VOS structure information for eventual restoration. Unlike other programs on this file server, these programs are available already compiled. Over time, we will be converting the file server to store all files in compressed, encapsulated form using these tools.
Together with the standard VOS save and restore commands, these commands enable you to save a complete VOS file or directory in a single, compact stream file without losing any VOS file type information. Such files are called "bundled" files for convenience.
The VOS command macro "bundle.cm" can be used to create a bundled file, and the command macro "unbundle.cm" can be used to turn a bundled file back into the original VOS file or directory.

You need the VOS Standard C compiler (aka ANSI C Compiler; the cc command) in order to compile the source code for gzip. Note that the VOS ANSI C compiler is able to compile the gzip source code without ANY changes! The source code will not compile with the older VOS C compiler.
Either the VOS C compiler or the VOS Standard C compiler can be used to compile the source code for encode_vos_file.
These programs are not supported by Stratus Customer Service.
