You'll want to investigate the uname command, present on most (if not
all) Unix systems.  With most (if not all) versions of uname, a "uname
-srv" will give you the information about the OS and its version level
if things are properly configured.

1. Question running C++ compiled application on newer OS version versus on older OS versions of AIX?

My question is, taking the latest AIX C++ 6.0 compiled binary on a 5.2
version and running it on an older version AIX OS such n such as 3.2 to a
4.1 version, will there be any complications for that binary to execute? Is
so, can you please give me some examples?

Appreciate any input you can give me.

Thank you,
Jt
