B.3.2.5 The VMS GNV Project

The VMS GNV package provides a build environment similar to POSIX with ports of a collection of open source tools. The gawk found in the GNV base kit is an older port. Currently the GNV project is being reorganized to supply individual PCSI packages for each component. See https://sourceforge.net/p/gnv/wiki/InstallingGNVPackages/.

The normal build procedure for gawk produces a program that is suitable for use with GNV.

The vms/gawk_build_steps.txt in the source documents the procedure for building a VMS PCSI kit that is compatible with GNV.
