BASIC example of TCP/IP $qio programming?

» close window

The Question is:

We need to communcate between out Alpha 2100, VMS 7.2-1, and a PC server
 running NT4, using sockets. We program in Compaq Basic, and all the examples
 are in C. It would appear that this can still be done using VMS system
 services such as $assign, $qio, bu
t we cannot understand exactly how. Do you have any examples, or could you
 proivide any further help.
Thank you.

The Answer is :

  The OpenVMS Wizard strongly recommends learning about the OpenVMS
  Calling Standard, as this is the cornerstone of programming on
  OpenVMS -- once you learn how the calling standard works.
  The OpenVMS Wizard does not have available examples of programming
  TCP/IP $qio calls, but expects that existing examples of calling
  $qio could suffice, in combination with existing C examples of
  TCP/IP $qio calls and the TCP/IP $qio documentation.  (The Wizard
  is aware of a Fortran example of TCP/IP $qio programming available
  from the customer support center.)
