Check the currently installed softwares

Could anybody suggest how to check the details with versions of softwares currently installed on Open VMS system?

Re: Check the currently installed softwares

$ PRODUCT SHOW HISTORY

$ TYPE SYS$UPDATE:VMSINSTAL.HISTORY

$ DIR SYS$HELP:*.RELEASE_NOTES

Typical Digital/Compaq/HP layered products will leave traces in one or two of the above places.

Third-party layered products may behave differently.

Re: Check the currently installed softwares


Volker points out the 'bulk' providers.
Many individual products have a /VERSION qualifier or "SHOW VERSION" command

For example:

$ fort/ver
HP Fortran V8.1-1-104930-50GBS

$ tcpip show version
HP TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS Industry Standard 64 Version V5.6

For compilers, without a version command, I typically just ask a listing for compiling nothing:


$ cob/list=tt: nl:
:
Source Listing 5-MAR-2009 09:34:12 HP COBOL V2.8-1444

Hein,

Thanks. but fort/ver didn't work
could you confirm if it's the correct syntax?
I need to check version of DECform and Fortran on the system.

Amaresh,

Like Hein said for cobol also works for fortran;
$ for/lis=tt: nl:

For DECforms:

$ Anal/inter sys$system:decforms

at the 4th page you see the version

Proost.

Have one on me.

Re: Check the currently installed softwares

I beg to differ. It does work... for me. As per above or per below:

DEMO$ fort/ver
Compaq Fortran V7.5-1961-48BCD

If it does not work for you, then either your version is way to old or there is no fortran installed.

What was the ERRORS message when you tried?

btw... the compiling NL: doe snot work directly for Fortran. It needs a little more:

$FORTRAN /LIST=TT: TT:
END
^Z
:
COMPILER: Compaq Fortran V7.5-1961-48BCD



$forms tran nl:/lis=tt:

DECforms V3.1-0 DS V3.9-111 IFDL Translator Source Code Listing

Thanks Hein.
FORTRAN is not on the system. I checked on different server and it worked.
