When porting legacy DOS applications to Windows NT it is no longer possible to use DOS interface libraries to communicate with the motion controller. Access to peripherals, including the motion controller, requires an NT device driver.

Software platforms have emerged to take hand coding out of the net processor development cycle. Here's a guide for choosing these tools.



The complexity involved in porting your application from a current Windows or OS/2 application to NWSIPX depends on whether you decide to maintain the same logical flow of your program. The new notification methods provided in NWSIPX allow you, in many cases, to write your program to be more efficient than was previously possible. If you choose to modify the logical flow of the program, porting the application may be fairly time consuming (this would be much like writing the network components from scratch, which is essentially what you are doing). Porting the application and maintaining the programs original logical flow, however, is fairly easy



Using Linux as an embedded operating system has many measurable engineering advantages - broad hardware support, scalability, excellent performance, high reliability, and open APIs. There are also enticing business reasons to employ Linux - no run-time royalties, free or low-cost available software components, and freely available source code.



Migrating Solaris applications to AIX Need to migrate applications from the SUN Solaris platform to the IBM AIX platform? This document makes it easy. In most cases, migration will require nothing more than a simple recompile. But there are exceptions. In this paper, the IBM authors discuss various migration scenarios and focus on the instances that require changes to the application source or to the way the application is built for an easy move from Solaris to AIX



There are several methods of porting a UNIX solution to an iSeries server, depending on what system facilities the solution uses and what kinds of function the solution provides to customers. This section's discussion focuses on C and C++, though some considerations apply to other development environments found on UNIX. The IBM Solutions Enablement porting team has facilities and consulting skills to help you assess the best environment "fit" for your application so that you will provide the strongest solution for your iSeries customers while delivering that solution in a timely, cost-effective manner. Because there are different application models and different integration needs of applications, "one size" does not "fit all." [ NOTE: If you are using Java, see the Java section below.]


Porting Mac OS X to Intel

With the initial success of OS X (hey, it works) and the beginning of a migration to a Unix-based platform, much has been made of the possibility of Apple porting OS X to other platforms. The initial reaction of many is that this would greatly expand Apple's market share and allow them to gain on the Wintel competition. As I think through the ramifications on Apple's business, I have determined that porting Mac OS X to other hardware would be the last thing on which Apple should focus.



Porting DOS Applications to Linux Trying to port a DOS application to Linux? Alan Cox gives you hints and practical help. With a little care, the average DOS application can be easily ported to the Linux system. This article looks at some of the techniques involved, and tries to provide a small ``builder's kit'' of handy little DOS routines people always want under Linux



Porting Scientific and Engineering Programs to Linux You can port nuclear engineering programs written in FORTRAN and C to Linux easily and efficiently. The relatively exorbitant cost of hardware and compilers necessary to put together a fully functional engineering workstation puts them out of reach of most students or professionals, who desire a workstation at home. Even for large companies cutting costs without loss of efficiency is desirable. With the advances in Intel processor speed and the ever growing software base available for Linux, the combination presents a good solution for the low cost workstation.


MacOS X System Architecture

This documents talks about Mac OS X system architecture at a concept level, making it useful for anybody who is thinking of porting his applications to Mac OS X.
