Notes for VMS created on 22 December 2008
      -removed the "porting library", since it seems to be corrupt for new
       versions of the CRTL. Now VMS-file names are not translated to
       "unix-style" and vice versa. Only "unix-style is alolowed for the
       moment. To force CRTL routines to return "unix-style" filenames one
       has to define DECC$FILENAME_UNIX_REPORT to ENABLE, before running
       fontforge.
       i.e.
          $ define DECC$FILENAME_UNIX_REPORT ENABLE
	  $ fontforge
	  $ deass DECC$FILENAME_UNIX_REPORT



Notes for VMS created on 17 November 2005

Compilation :
      -use MMS or MMK in the main directory (the one containing this file)
      -Ignore all messages about undefined symbols during linking of the
         shareable images. I have no idea how to supress them.

To use :
      -the file [.libs]libfontforge.exe should be in a directory defined by
         the logical SYS$SHARE. So either copy it to it or redefine it
       i.e.: 
       assign dev:[fontforge.fontforge.fontforge.libs],sys$sysroot:[syslib] sys$share
      -To use the plugins (an example is in the [.plugins] directory) you have
       to create a logical FONTFORGE$PLUGINS pointing to all directories to
       be scanned for plugins
       i.e.
       define/job/trans=(concealed)/nolog fontforge$plugins dev:[fontforge.fontforge.fontforge.plugins.]
       Note that the final "." before the "]" is essential.
    Note that both logicals FONTFORGE$PLUGINS and SYS$SHARE can be defined
      system-wide, for a group of users or for a single user only.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
