POLYMAKE needed
« on: June 09, 2022, 08:37:49 am »
I need the (old msdos) "polymake" program to be able to compile a program package for msdos, because the "make" program is accusing a long sequence error, and there is no way to modify it, it doesn't work. Is it possible to send it to my email alexdedalus@hotmail.com or provide a download link? I thank!

I don't think "polymake" was one of ours.

Polymake was a 16-bit product by a company called INTERSOLV.  32-bit Opus Make by Opus Software is supposed to run Polymake make files.  Neither company still exists.  It may be necessary to convert the make file to use a make tool that is still available (or cross compile from Linux back to MS-DOS).

I was pretty sure "Poly" was Intersolv/PVCS related (I think they were originally Polytron).

You could try setting up a project with SlickEdit's built-in build tool.  https://youtu.be/1I_RkocjsiU

edwardn9, Where is possible download the "32-bit Opus Make by Opus Software"?

Dan, I dont understand how to do this. Is possible help me more clear?

Does SlickEdit's compile project for msdos? That is, use it to accept Makefile.mak and compile the sources to run under msdos, as they were made to run?

Thanks!

Why doesn't this work with the make that comes with Microsoft C 5.1?
What is wrong?

I can answer your question about the make tool supplied with MS C 5.1 though: That tool nowhere near as capable as PolyMake, in fact it is not really worthy of the name 'make'.

Back in the day, I used to be able to make PolyMake jump through burning hoops. However, "Back in the day" is literally 30 years ago and I can no longer remember what the different transformation macros ($[f,...] and such) do. But let's see what we can do in this day and age:

  • Can I assume that the compiler is MS C 5.1?
  • And that you have a machine that this compiler runs on?
  • If so, what kind of machine?
  • And are there other tools available on it??

$[f,<path>,<list>,<ext>]   Build filename from <path>, <list>, and <ext>
$[r,<text>]                Base name of <text>
$*                         Path name of the target minus the extension


Microsoft NMAKE from back in the day will not process these.

ebbe, I'm using an 86Box emulator, but I can naturally switch to another emulator if you deem it necessary, such as PCem, DosBox, or even VMWare. I have them all installed.

I already tried to use the C Lattice compiler, but not even the make source, it managed to compile.
So not to complicate things, I'm back to MSC5.1, and I'll try to translate MAKEFILE.MAK to a version that is understandable by MASM's make (anyone up for this challenge?).

If anyone has any other "make" available, that has the executable that runs under msdos, I would be very grateful.

Some msdos repository must have a polymake for msdos, I'm still looking through the most popular repositories, but there must be hundreds of them, and maybe someone with luck will be able to find it.

These last lines in the original makefile:

$[f,$(.PATH.obj),$(MNAME),obj]+
...
...
...

, I think they are completely unnecessary, as we don't see lines like that, in traditional Makefiles, nor in UNIX. I believe they can be replaced naturally to make it compatible with the traditional makefile. Well, it's not a complication like that, which the command line of the LINK program will need to do its job.

And that's exactly what I'm doing, according to my post above, with my MAKEFILE modified, to be compatible with the traditional make of MS C and/or MASM.

I reviewed my MAKEFILE.MAK, and posted it just above. (June 13, 2022, 06:21:51 am) LOOK...

But it still doesn't work, giving error:
MAKE: warning U4014:usage...

and he ends up doing nothing.

Having nothing to do with the above error, but some programs are needing a library:
"Blaise Computing C Tools Plus", but I can't find it anywhere to download. Can someone help me?

There's some info about c tools here
http://www.phildavidson.com/services/ctpfunc.htm

there's a download here but you have to register and registration isn't working for me
https://vetusware.com/download/Turbo%20C%20Tools%206.01/?id=3713

also some info about c tools here
https://ia601203.us.archive.org/13/items/Blaise_Computing_Inc_Products/Blaise_Computing_Inc_Products.pdf

here's a download
https://old--dos-ru.translate.goog/index.php?page=files&mode=files&do=show&id=2095&_x_tr_sch=http&_x_tr_sl=ru&_x_tr_tl=en&_x_tr_hl=en&_x_tr_pto=sc
There's a link on that page to a zip download that works - I've attached to this post.
The zip file contains some "arj" files which 7 zip knows how to uncompress.
It has header files, object files and lib files - dated 1989.

I recently discovered that POLYMAKE in addition to MAKEFILE.MAK, also uses a second file, BUILTINS.MAK: See my post up there, followed by the original MAKEFILE.MAK.

Of the two I compiled the current MAKEFILE from scratch, so that it is compatible with the traditional make used in MS C 5.1 for msdos.

But make still doesn't work, and neither does make -f MAKEFILE.MAK, Giving the same error:
MAKE: warning U4014:usage...

and he ends up doing nothing.

Graeme, Oh my God, 1000 thanks, you're the man! You can count on me for whatever you need, Thanks!

I'll see if it works with MS C, as this library is for Turbo C. And I still have to find out why make doesn't work with my MAKEFILE.MAK.

The MAKEFILE.MAK for some detail that I must be forgetting (some comma or sign not accepted by make), does nothing.
So I decided to compile by hand, "cl" by "cl", then "make" by "make", but when reaching the linker, it gives hundreds of errors, because maybe the LIB provided by "turbo c tools" is not compatible with the MS C.
So I guess I should keep looking for Blaise Computing's "c tools". Or find a way to make the "turbo c tools" libs compatible with MS C.

Anyone have a better idea?
