Re: JAM File

It would really help if you explained in what context you use jam Files. they do not appear to be a standard windows or other file type.

Are they Java Macros, Joint Assembly Modules, or recipes for preserves.

Re: JAM File

If You mean the JAM "make" utility (the one Ian points the URLs to), then it builds on VMS too.
Just for curiosity I tried it once, and basically it works (although needs work to support ODS5).
I (and my users) don't actually use it. It seems to be an attempt to produce just another make utility, and I question its usefullness.

Re: JAM File

Aside from its usefullness, here You see an example of a jamfile for VMS:
http://wwwvms.mppmu.mpg.de/~huber/util/jamfile.
together with
http://wwwvms.mppmu.mpg.de/util_root/data/jambase.

It was working once on an ODS2 disk, but not after converting to ODS5.
