The test installation was performed on a HP 9000/735 running HP-UX
- You can and should use the default cc compiler, both for the F2PS and
F2TEXT and other programs in $SYSUNIX, and for the regular compilation
(if installing from source).
- The Makefile for XAS did not work on HP-UX 9 (unless you have GNU
make or gmake). The macro expansion of $(ARCH) fails. Just
substitute "HP" for the string "$(ARCH)" wherever it appears and it
- Of all the architectures, HP (HP-UX 9) gave the most problems when
porting the GNU Readline library and incorporating it into AIPS. You
should not try and use the readline functionality and the suspend key
(usually Control-Z); the NORL option (no readline) of the aips command
can be used if you really must have the ability to suspend the program.
- The dual library feature (debug and non-debug libraries) is not
available for HP-UX. A HP-specific version of the LINK shell script
is used which is more primitive than the generic script.
