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

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

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