Ask the Wizard Questions

C Language: C examples

The Question is:

[ I don't know the OpenVMS version...]

I'm a student at the UPC university, that they have some
VMS's & Alpha's connected in a network (cluster?).
I'm would get information about the VAX O.S., the C
libraries ( the VMS's HELP don't let's me so much
information about this... ), and some examples or
turorials about this...

Are FTP servers that have this information?
Where are they?


PS:...and sorry for my very *BAD* english...

The Answer is:

   As you are a student, you will want to become familiar with the
   various materials available to you at the university, and with the
   process of gathering this information together.  As a start, contact
   the computer center staff and ask for assistance, and in particular
   ask for access to the Digital documentation set for OpenVMS and for
   the particular C compiler installed on the system, and for any local
   documentation available at the university.

:Are FTP servers that have this information?

   Yes, but it is always best to look locally first.

:Where are they?

   The OpenVMS Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) posting -- a monthly
   posting in comp.os.vms -- is typically a good place to start when
   looking for non-site-specific information.  The OpenVMS FAQ is
   available at the following locations:

     comp.os.vms newsgroup
     comp.answers newsgroup
     news.answers newsgroup
     CompuServe VAXFORUM, Library 0, VMSFAQ.TXT

   There are a number of FTP sites containing examples in the FAQ.
