To subscribers of the difax and ldm-users groups: Originally I wrote (with some typos):
We are about to migrate away from satellite reception of difax and over to the idd completely. Having looked at the Unidata home page and noted the solutions for printing difax charts. So I went out and picked up the pbmplus utilities and am trying to build them on our system (a SPARC20 running Solaris 2.3) using Suns C compiler. I've hit two snags and am wondering if anyone out there can provide some guidance:
1. I initially got an error in compilation when strings.h could not be found. Searching around our system, I found the file in /usr/apps/SUNWspro/SC3.0.1/include/CC but suspect that it is for C++ instead of C. Is this true?
2. I copied the above strings.h file to /usr/local/netpbm where I am building the utilities and edited Makefile and pbmplus.h as instructed. The results of the subsequent make were:
cc -Xa -O -I.. -s -o atktopbm atktopbm.c libpbm.a Undefined first referenced symbol in file rindex libpbm.a(libpbm1.o) ld: fatal: Symbol referening errors. No output written to atktopbm *** Error code 1 make: Fatal error: Command failed to target `atktopbm'
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Thanks to all of the people who responded: Dana (dana@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx) Peter Schmid Andrew Devanas Dave Dempsey Dave Wilensky Robert Pasken Russ Rew The problem turned out to be a stupid one. I had not completed the configuration for System V and still had some BSD stuff in there. Once that was corrected, everything looked fine. I appreciate the discussion on printing DIFAX and the offers of scripts from several of you. My first shot is going to be following FSU's model. Then we'll see what happens and customize as needed.
