Refer to the topic UNIX Installation Procedures for installation procedures common to all UNIX platforms.
The PI-API-SOL1 is distributed on 3.5" floppy disk. The files on the disk must be extracted to the PI home directory. The following commands will perform this:
# cd $PIHOME
# tar -xvf /dev/rfd0
After restoring the files from the floppy, the following directories should exist under PIHOME:
bin dat include lib src
After successful installation of the PI-API, you will need to modify the pistart script:
Using an editor, open the file $PIHOME/bin/pistart. Find the following line: PSARG=-e # -cx for solaris 1
Modify the line to read:
PSARG=-cx # -cx for solaris 1
Make a similar change to the file $PIHOME/bin/pistop. You will need to make the files writeable:
chmod u+w pistart
chmod u+w pistop
Certain predefined constants are required for successful programming with the PI-API. Your compiler may automatically define these or provide a means to define constants for all compiled modules. If not, these defines must be included in your source before the PI-API header files are included.
For this platform the required constants are:
