After many years of being away from Informix, I am back building an Informix demo. I want to use the 4gl standard demo.
For reasons I won't discuss here, I have installed IDS 12 in one directory and 4GL 7 in a different directory. I'm on centos 8.
I've never installed tools and engine in separate directories, and it seems a good idea, but I can't find any doc on how that affects environment variables.*
I have created a file called 4gl.ksh that I source that looks like this:
export INFORMIXDIR INFORMIXSERVER ONCONFIG INFORMIXSQLHOSTS GL_USEGLU PATH
I was able to run r4gldemo successfully with this setup. It creates and loads the stores7 database and moves and compiles files to my current directory*. I looked into the r4gldemo script and apparently it does this via fglgo...so that works.
I now try to run
and r4gl literally does nothing. Just returns to the prompt. Same thing if I run just r4gl by itself...nothing.
I have INFORMIXTERM set to xterm, which is what my putty is.
*on a side note, I try to run dbaccess w/ this env setup and I get:
Unknown error message 32370.
