This project is part of the GNU Project.

This package has been decommissioned, see GNV.

GNU vmslib is a bunch of files and small routines that can help people to port GNU programs to VMS. It consists of a C function library, with routines that are missing in the current system C libraries that have been seen so far, maybe with the exception of GNU libc. In GNU vmslib, there are also a bunch of scripts (in VMS terminology, they are called `command procedures') which help a lot in writing makefiles, and other scripts. There is more, please read the README file in each directory for further instruction.

GNU vmslib is different from the package you usually use by not really being a program that you can use in itself. Rather, you will tend to copy a few, or maybe all of the files to whatever other GNU program you wish to port. There is one program (really a script) that can be used directly, and that is gen_descrip.com. It is a command procedure that takes an input file and generates a makefile, which you can use to automagically copy the right files to the right other GNU packages.
