The Question is:
Was vmsinstal written with some kind of code generator ? Is it available ?
The Answer is :
What you see in this and in several other DCL command procedures is a
result of a tool known as DCLDIET. This DCLDIET tool was implemented
many years ago, and to effectively resolve problems -- largely the disk
storage and processor performance that was available with the VAX-11/700
The OpenVMS Wizard cannot and will not recommend this tool, and would
prefer that OpenVMS itself not use such a tool. Like all optimizations,
the particular need for DCLDIET has effectively passed -- further, the
problems and limits present with VMSINSTAL itself have also led to the
replacement of VMSINSTAL with PCSI.
OpenVMS Engineering does not maintain the DCLDIET version of this nor
of any other similar tools processed with DCLDIET. All changes to these
tools are made to the original source version of the tool, and not to
the version that has been subjected to DCLDIET.
If you wish to subject your own DCL command procedures to DCLDIET -- and
this is not recommended -- please see the DCL_CHECK_DIET directory on
the OpenVMS Freeware V5.0 distribution. Pointers to the Freeware are
available in the OpenVMS Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).
