swlist | grep -i inform

Hi Kamal,
Informix is not installed through swinstall so you wont find anything in swlist
To check if you have informix 4GL installed or not go to $INFORMIXDIR/bin (which is the base directory where the informix is installed) and you should have a file called i4gl
i4gl -v and you should get the version of 4GL installed like this
INFORMIX-4GL Version 7.30.HC4

The informix software is installed on most of the unix plarforms using RPM tools.

On hpux it is not available on depot format so that this can be recognized using 'swlist'.

Rajeev is right,check the $INFORMIXDIR/bin for the product executables.

Re: informix 4gl

Login as informix and use these commands

1. To see if you have runtime and the version

fglgo -v

2. To see if you have the compiler

fglpc -v

Hi Kamal,

You can also try

You can also try
