That one wouldn't be essential. It's more important to get builds on
platforms that have earlier OS's or, in the VMS case, earlier TCP/IP
versions than the ones for which C-Kermit 8.0.206 is already built.

: Or as a compromise, "DEC/HP VMS".

Understood, but on the other hand if I left it out somebody else would
complain. This way more searches succeed. Also, it *is* more complicated;
e.g. DEC OSF/1 and Digital Unix, but Compaq and HP Tru64 (DEC never called it
Tru64, unless I'm mistaken)... Plus, if you think it's complicated now, just
wait til VMS comes out on IA64. Then we'll have:
(VAX vs Alpha vs IA64) x ([Open]VMS version) x (TCP product) x (TCP version)
How inconsiderate of DEC to complicate our lives by making products that
never die. I've got a VAX upstairs running VMS 5.5 that hasn't been rebooted
in years. And I don't even feel that I'm tempting fate by saying that.
Anyway back to the point -- the binaries we need the most right now are for
older platforms: Digital Unix 3.x, OSF/1, VMS prior to 5.5, Ultrix versions
prior to 4.5. The AT&T 3B2. Solaris prior to 2.5.1. The Sun3 and Sun4.
Any version of AIX besides 4.3.3. Any version of AIX, SunOS, or Solaris
with X.25 support. Older versions of IRIX or DG/UX. Any version of
NeXTSTEP, OpenSTEP, ESIX, or NCR MP-RAS. Unicos... Are there any Crays left
There are also some new platforms I don't have binaries for yet -- QNX 6.1,
Zaurus, Ipaq... Oh yeah, and some other new Linux-based PDA (not Zaurus)
from Korea, can't remember its name just now.
