Programming / Re: Non-yum/rpm vs. ordinary (?) eCS

And here we have the second reason why I'm sticking with WarpIn and not going the RPM/YUM route, the first being my unwillingness to shut the door on older versions of OS/2 just for new installer with a new set of problems.

Good for you.  As my first post in this forum, and after having recently re-discovered OS/2, and being a developer myself (such as it is with the VB-style stuff I use), I currently have no intention of supporting YUM, RPM or related repositories as an OS/2 developer.    While all versions of OS/2 in use can use WarpIn, not all of them can use the YUM/Repository feature that is so far exclusive to ArcaOS, which itself will still support WarpIn just fine.

Since I have no intention of shutting any doors on previous versions of OS/2, I'm sticking with WarpIn, at least for the foreseeable future.

Applications / Re: Visual BASIC for OS/2

IBM VisualAge for BASIC for OS/2 v1.2 can be downloaded here on this abandonware site:

Note that it seems to only work on OS/2 v2.1, Warp3/4, and eCS v1x.   I was able to install it on eCS v2.1, but was not able to get it to run.

This is a real find, as this is available NOWHERE else on the net.
