The UnixWare 7 Software Development documentation
assists you in developing applications using the
UnixWare/OpenServer Development Kit.
This topic is part of the
UnixWare 7 documentation set.
The titles included in the Software Development documentation
are listed below, in a suggested browsing order for developers
new to UnixWare 7:
Porting, integration, and compatibility
How to run SCO OpenServer and UnixWare applications on UnixWare 7; as
well as how to port applications and their source code
to the UnixWare 7 Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).
Also describes the APIs appropriate for using the UnixWare/OpenServer Development Kit
to develop applications that run on any SCO OpenServer and UnixWare 7 system.
Programming in standard C and C++
Discusses the UnixWare system programming environment and
utilities and provides details of the C and C++ languages, file
formats, link editor, libraries, and tools.
Debugging and analyzing C and C++ programs
Describes tools for identifying problems in your programs and
improving program performance.
Software development tools
Describes the UnixWare 7 tools for developing and packaging
Programming with system calls and libraries
Describes the basic operating system services provided by the
UnixWare 7 kernel.
Programming with the pre-standard C++ libraries
Describes the C++ class libraries provided with the C++
Using network programming interfaces
Covers networking APIs, such as XTI/TLI, Sockets, RPC, NIS,
network selection, name-to-address mapping, the connection server,
writing a port monitor, and REXEC client support routines.
Character user interface programming
Tells you how to use the Form and Menu Language Interpreter
(FMLI) and the Extended Terminal Interface (ETI) routines
to write menu-based and forms-based character user interfaces
for your applications.
Developing Visual Tcl applications
Contains information on using the SCO Visual Tcl
scripting language to create Motif-based graphical user interfaces for
Using this scripting language allows you to
construct sophisticated graphical applications without the complexity
of directly using, for example, Motif or curses.
Developing SCOadmin applications
How to create system management applications (known as managers) using the
SCOadmin system administration framework and development environment.
User interface style conventions
Provides guidelines for creating graphical and character-based application
interfaces that are consistent with the interface style used by existing
Message store programming
Describes the message store API for Mail and Messaging.
Desktop Management Interface programming
Describes how to create and distribute the Desktop Management Interface
how to integrate DMI Service Providers with a product and
how to integrate DMI-enabled management applications into
Programming interfaces for EELS
Describes the two programming interfaces provided for access to
EELS. The first interface is the propritory interface
provided by EELS and the second is the XDAS
conformant interface (conforming to the specifications laid down
by the ``Open Group'').
Development Kit Features
Describes the new features in the UDK.
