Non-Uniface server jobs launched from Uniface

Author: tatiana@ca.ibm.com (tandron)

Hello all,

Is it possible to program Uniface to directly schedule a non-Uniface program to run on an AIX server? The key word is "directly". We know we can spawn a DOS command to launch, say a C program, but is there a native Uniface capability to do that?

 

Thanks

  1. Hi

    activate a 3GL C signature. In your case, which seems to be AIX specific, its quite simple : fork from the C function, and exec your program. Being portable with Windows would be more challengeous.

    Kind regards,
    Richard
