Socket connections in DIBOL

Socket connections in DIBOL

Socket connections in DIBOL


i do a little DIBOL programming on the side and was looking to set up a socket connection to my work computer via DIBOL. don't ask why: lets just say i enjoy challenges

but i'm currently using DIBOL 7.3.1 and cannot find any references to sockes in the manual.

Does DIBOL support sockets or should i just use C++ instead? (that sounds a little boring to me )

Thanx a million for any help


RE: Socket connections in DIBOL

Take a look at the post "DBL and C interface".
Maybe call a C subroutine...are you running on OpenVMS?

RE: Socket connections in DIBOL

From memory the Synergy DBL socket API appeared in version 6.

Look in the Synergy Langauage reference manual under Language API, Socket API. There are a set of functions (%SS_) to handle
all the socket stuff.
