The Question is:
I am trying to re-compile a FORTRAN program that uses FMS from an old VAX VMS
5.5 system on a new Alpha OpenVMS system.
The problem I have is that the FMS function, FDV$ATERM() is reported as an
unresolved external on the new system. I have checked the docs, and can find
this in an old FMS manual, but no trace in newer documentation. Am I missing
something here? Is there a
replacement for this function, or do I need to remove it and implement the
Thanks in anticipation for your help.
The Answer is :
A successful call to FDV$ATERM indicates the target is a supported
terminal -- this routine could quite easily be replaced, of course.
The module that contains the FDV$ATERM routine is normally inserted
into STARLET.OLB, and is present so long as an appropriate version
of FMS has been installed.
If STARLET.OLB is replaced or somehow reloaded without the FDV$ATERM
module, then FMS must be reinstalled.
