Porting UNIX Applications to Linux -- Hints and Tips

Did you know that Linux is the number two server operating system in the world today? Are your applications running on Linux today? If not, this paper is intended to give you hints and tips and describes a roadmap on how you can port applications to Linux. It is based on the experiences of software engineers from Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and from the worldwide IBM labs, who have been involved in many projects porting applications to Linux.

 

Technical guide for porting applications from Solaris to Linux, version 1.0

Solaris and Linux are loosely related to Unix, so they ought to be a lot alike, right? Not so - the differences pose a great many "gotchas." Let this technical porting guide show you the ropes for porting your Solaris application to the Linux platform.

http://www.alphaworks.ibm.com/tech/portingmanager/

PortingManager is a tool that provides assistance when porting C and C++ Solaris applications to Linux platforms, including zSeries Linux. It includes a GUI that displays a work area window where the user selects a source code directory tree to scan. PortingManager will then scan the source code and automatically identify Solaris APIs that may be incompatible with Linux. It provides Linux solutions for these incompatibilities, either in the form of API replacements or suggested work-arounds using coding examples.
