C compilation and LINK?

» close window

The Question is:

I have one problem in compile and link one program. I use LIB$SPAWN in my
 program but I do not Know how to do the CC and the link can you help me?

The Answer is :

  Please read the C programming manuals.  The C manuals are
  available on-line, and explain OpenVMS application program
  development (using C) in some detail.
  The correct syntax for this operation, assuming a current
  Compaq C or HP C compiler, is:
    CC program
    LINK program
  OpenVMS system service declarations are in the starlet.h
  include file.
  Without some information on the error being reported and/or
  the source code, no more specific answer is feasible.
  Please also see the OpenVMS FAQ discussion of C programming,
  and also of programming with string descriptors.
  Examples of lib$spawn() and system() calls abound, as well.
  Please see the Freeware, SYS$EXAMPLES:, and other areas.
