Yes, that has a version of cxl for Borland Turbo C. Researching it seems the original author sold it to someone else who extended it. cxlos2.lib is a static lib and it being built for Borland is likely the reason that newer Watcom's aren't compatible.
Unluckily there is no pp386d.pch a precompiled header. There is a wpp386.pch which seems to have been built in my attempt to build it. It might be possible to find the header that was precompiled or reverse engineer it. Unluckily I'm not a Watcom expert.

Well I certainly appreciate your efforts thank you very much for trying...

Greetings,

I wonder if this one is any different, I will look around for the libraries... I found some called TCXL, and these https://github.com/steeve/ToneLocs, the ZIP attached includes a CXL folder might be the ones

So do you think its a no-go?  Ah well it would have been nice to use lora again on os/2 as that was my original setup on my BBS back in the early 90's..

Thanks for your efforts I surely do appreciate it

Greetings,

A few of us have been trying (very much amateur's) to compile this source code on arca for a BBS program.  I believe it is watcom C?
Anyone have some advice, direction? Or willing to give it a try if you have the experience? Ill attach the zip of the source..

Hope everyone is well

Regards,

Greetings,

Getting further along in getting my Arca setup going... I am trying to get it to print.  I have the above mentioned HP printer on my network, Arca sees it, which was good but when I print to it, it prints one garbled line across the top of the page and that is it... Anyone point me where to trouble shoot?

Hope everyone is well and staying safe

Applications / Path

Greetings All,

I hope everyone is well out there!  I cannot remember, can I start an application say like file commander from a 4os2 prompt from any dir by say typing "fc"?  I have that dir on my path statement in config.sys, I just do not recall if that is possible under os2 or arca?

Regards,

Rick

Utilities / Re: Text editor

Personally, I use File Commander for things like a cmd line text editor, file manager etc. Shareware but no nags etc, http://silk.apana.org.au/fc.html

Thank you, this is just like midnight commander which I am familiar.....!

Regards,

Rick

Greetings,

I have followed all of these tips on a thinkpad t430s with 1080 screen.  I have it mostly working, however once in DOS session I can get BBS started but for some reason if I do a simple "dir" command it closes DOS completely

Any thoughts

Regards,

Thank you all for your help I just had to repurchase arca  :o because to buy the maintenance program after expired was more expensive than just purchasing the whole OS again.. kind of shitty of arca but oh well...

That second link is the information I did actually try.  Your fist link to the mantis doesnt seem to work.

Setup & Installation / Dos and WinOS2
« on: July 08, 2022, 02:38:14 am »
Greetings,

I have just discovered that both dos and winos2 prompts do not work, in fact loading either window or full screen hangs my laptop. I do not recall this issue when I installed arca on this laptop before but it was awhile ago.  I looked on arca web site and seemed they had directions to fix similar issues so I did try those, autoexec.bat and the config.sys change but problem persists.  Any ideas?
