db_mt.zip
« on: June 22, 2016, 11:03:44 pm »
Many years ago I developed a script for building Perl. That script involved grabbing a file called db_mt.zip which was located here:-

http://www.math.ohio-state.edu/~ilya/software/os2/db_mt.zip

I don't think it was ever uploaded to Hobbes, and I believe Ilya Zakharevich who created the file has moved elsewhere.

Anyone know any public repository which has this file available?

Or even better, some instructions on how to build db.a which is the only file in the zipfile.

It certainly is! Many thanks....

Can't figure out why I couldn't find it

I just need to find gnu sed 2.04 which used to be here:-

ftp://ftp.leo.org/pub/comp/os/os2/leo/gnu/systools/gnused.zip

and I can get back to my original UX2BS build system...

I think OS/2 support was removed from Perl since UX2BS and I know the last few times I tried to build Perl with EMX and kLIBC, it was quite broken.
Paul has patches for kLIBC and of course there is the source RPM and the SVN repository at netlabs in the ports repository.
EMX is so outdated now that not much will build with it unless the stdint and a couple of other headers are written for it

Hi John,

http://www.os2site.com/mirrors/leo/gnu/systools/

That's excellent Ian, apart from the fact that anonymous retrieval via wget is not allowed.

Hi John,

Would db_mt.zip be the same one here http://www.os2site.com/sw/dev/perl/index.html?

I could enable anonymous access via FTP but then there would be no website access, and I would have no internet access at all due to the saturation of my link. I like to use my internet access occasionally, therefore the restrictions.

People, including some with OS/2 identified strings like to download the same files in the same directories on repeat, with multiple streams. I consider this a DoS. There is no reason to attempt mirroring the entire website, with multiple download threads from multiple IP's that end up downloading the same file x number of times. This became a very common occurrence, one that leads me to believe someone simply wants to piss me off or get rid of the website.

It's one of the main reasons I introduced username and password access to os2site.com. We can use the internet link that we have paid for, I don't need to pay more for an increase in data on my current internet plan, others can use the link to see the websites here, and the person paying the bills is a lot happier, me :)

It is also someones favorite pastime to tell me how stupid I am to host a website at home, they aren't willing to pay for server hosting though, and I wont be updating the website remotely if its hosted somewhere else because it becomes to slow and difficult to do using a remote link.

Hope that explains a bit why things are the way they are.

I've downloaded db_mt.zip from http://www.ilyaz.org/software/os2/db_mt.zip using a normal browser, it redirected to the ftp link and downloaded fine. It's the same one of yours I have on os2site.com.

(edited for grammar)
