The Question is:
We will be updating our VAX to V7.3 for COBOL, BASIC, and C.
We plan to recompile/relink all the programs under the new compilers just to
see that everything still compiles correctly in a development area.
My question is: Once we decide all is fine with the new versions in our
we don't plan to move all of the recompiled/linked
code to Production.
We plan to just move the run time libraries,etc. to
our Production area.
Is this correct or should we move all of the
recompiled/linked code to
our Prod area as well ? Thanks.
The Answer is :
The OpenVMS Wizard would assume that merging the files would be more
work than it would be worth, and would choose to remain with the same
image versions or would migrate to the newer versions of the images.
The OpenVMS Wizard would tend to prefer to use the newly-built versions,
both for the compiler optimizations -- and more centrally -- for the
simplicity involved, so there is no question about which source and
derived files are in production. (The OpenVMS Wizard would preserve
linker maps and compiler listings, of course.)
