"Fossies" - the Fresh Open Source Software Archive
Member "muscle/zlib/zlib/os400/README400" (21 Nov 2020, 1871 Bytes) of package /linux/privat/muscle7.62.zip:
As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard
) with prefixed line numbers.
Alternatively you can here view
the uninterpreted source code file.
1 ZLIB version 1.2.11 for OS/400 installation instructions
3 1) Download and unpack the zlib tarball to some IFS directory.
4 (i.e.: /path/to/the/zlib/ifs/source/directory)
6 If the installed IFS command suppors gzip format, this is straightforward,
7 else you have to unpack first to some directory on a system supporting it,
8 then move the whole directory to the IFS via the network (via SMB or FTP).
10 2) Edit the configuration parameters in the compilation script.
12 EDTF STMF('/path/to/the/zlib/ifs/source/directory/os400/make.sh')
14 Tune the parameters according to your needs if not matching the defaults.
15 Save the file and exit after edition.
17 3) Enter qshell, then work in the zlib OS/400 specific directory.
20 cd /path/to/the/zlib/ifs/source/directory/os400
22 4) Compile and install
24 sh make.sh
26 The script will:
27 - create the libraries, objects and IFS directories for the zlib environment,
28 - compile all modules,
29 - create a service program,
30 - create a static and a dynamic binding directory,
31 - install header files for C/C++ and for ILE/RPG, both for compilation in
32 DB2 and IFS environments.
34 That's all.
37 Notes: For OS/400 ILE RPG programmers, a /copy member defining the ZLIB
38 API prototypes for ILE RPG can be found in ZLIB/H(ZLIB.INC).
39 In the ILE environment, the same definitions are available from
40 file zlib.inc located in the same IFS include directory as the
41 C/C++ header files.
42 Please read comments in this member for more information.
44 Remember that most foreign textual data are ASCII coded: this
45 implementation does not handle conversion from/to ASCII, so
46 text data code conversions must be done explicitely.
48 Mainly for the reason above, always open zipped files in binary mode.
