Adding to Device Control Library - Alpha /

OpenVMS V8.3 - Itanium Processor R2660 machine


I am running the following command:

$ LIBRARY /EXTRACT=LEX17CPI SYS$LIBRARY:SYSDEVCTL_IBM.TLB

And getting the following message:

%LIBRAR-W-DIFTYP, expected TEXT library SYS$SYSROOT:[SYSLIB]sysdevctl_ibm.tlb;1 to be ELF OBJECT

The module LEX17CPI does exist in SYSDEVCTL_IBM

$ LIBRARY/LIST SYS$LIBRARY:SYSDEVCTL_IBM.TLB

However, I believe I might have copied this library from an Alpha system that I migrated from.

I wanted to add another setup module to the library, but I wanted to look at the one I tried to extract as an example when creating the new one.

Is that going to be possible?

And am I going to be able to add new modules created on this system to that library?




Another question: How do I enter control codes in the editor? I have the printer manual so I probably have the correct codes to enter, but I only did this once, a long time ago.

That one I can answer. In EDT, or in EVE with the EDT keypad, press .

Re: Adding to Device Control Library - Alpha /

The message was a warning level and processing should have continued. You might get better results specifying /TEXT and a /OUTPUT to control the naming and placement of the extracted file.

e.g.

$ LIBR /EXTR=LEX17CPI /OUT=LEX17CPI.TXT SYS$LIBRARY:SYSDEVCTL_IBM.TLB /TEXT
