Programming / Open watcom lib question
« on: February 18, 2017, 09:39:33 pm »
Does anyone know where there is a list that indicates which functions are contained in which lib files? I specifically want to know which lib file contains the time functions. Are all the time function code isolated by itself in one lib file? I would just like to recompile that lib file, if possible since I modified some of the code in 2 of the functions. This is version 1.9. I have downloaded the source. Creating apps with it is working great but recompiling existing lib files from source is turning out to be another ballgame with me apparently.


Programming / Printf and ansi color codes
« on: February 03, 2017, 09:51:08 pm »
Just a simple question guys. Using open watcom 1.9  and wondering if it supports using ansi color codes with printf to change text colors? I have never done it using printf or is there a better way than printf to do it in open watcom? Thanks.

Programming / Open Watcom libraries
« on: September 07, 2016, 02:17:33 am »
Hi all, I wonder if someone could point me to some info on how to compile the clib source. I have open watcom 1.9 for OS/2 and I have downloaded the source and modified some of the time function code but I have never done a compile on the clib stuff. Could I just simply recompile the time function code or does all the libraries have to be compiled at once? Is this info buried somewhere in the help file? I will continue to browse it.

Applications / Program object question

Virtualbox 5.024

Hello all, is it not possible to have environment variable substitution in the Working Directory field for program objects?

For example: the program object for the text editor. If I have the HOME environment variable set to c:\home\adam and I want the Text Editor's Save As dialog box to always open in my home directory is it not possible to just specify %HOME% in the working directory field for the Text editor's program object? I have tried using %HOME% and that doesn't work. I have tried several different permutations but nothing has worked yet. I am beginning to think it just doesn't support variable substitution.

Setup & Installation / Problem installing eCups 2.1
« on: March 18, 2016, 01:05:39 am »
Hi all, I am trying to install the eCups 2.1 port on an os/2 4.52 system and it is giving me all kinds of grief. I double checked with the Arca Noae Package Manager that I had all the dependencies installed according to the online readme file at These 4 wpi packages refuse to install because I get a message stating that:"\eCups\cups is referenced as a macro but is not installed. Terminated.


Has anyone actually gotten this to install?

Utilities / Jonathan Pollard's Internet Utilities
« on: March 10, 2014, 01:18:33 am »
Does anyone know how to get in touch with Jonathan de Boyne Pollard? He doesn't check his SMTP email anymore because of all the spam crap he is getting. I tried emailing him a month or so ago but no reply. I wanted to know if he is still working on his Internet Utilities and if he had planned on releasing them or not? There are several of those there that I would like to use with his command interpreter and command-line utilities.

Programming / REXX programming question
« on: December 14, 2013, 09:01:04 pm »
Hi guys just a simple question. Is there a way in REXX to take a low order 32-bit value and a high 32-bit  and combine them? I want to combine the 2 32-bit values returned from Dos QuerySysInfo that contain the number of seconds from the system clock. I can get them separately and print them to the screen but I want to combine them into a single number even though right now the high-order word contains 0.
