I am having a bit of trouble to run a DOS Comn. program on SCO R3.2V4.2, would
anyone can give me some suggestion on this problem please. Thanks in advance.
The problem is as following:
When I run this DOS Comn. program, I enter on unix prompt as:
dos +acom1 switch
(indirect control on com1).this program will run and communicate with com1,
this is fine, but the overall performance of the system is VERY slow if I run
different programs, even unix program or dos program. Then I tried to run
direct control on com1 by:
dos +dcom1 switch
the program is not running, it is stopping immediately.
Are there any parameter (e.g. kernel parameter, etc.) that I can tune to let
this program run indirect control on com1 with minimum disruption to the
performance of the system?. Or if I run this program in "direct control on
com1" mode, how would I run it?.
I also tried to run on com2 as well, but still the same result.
I don't really want to rewrite this dos program.
Please help, thanks.
If possible, please mail to me on this address
