Subject: OS/2 port


(bear with me, I'm new at using mailing lists)

I started lurking here a few weeks ago in hopes of getting insight about
how to compile MC on OS/2.  Since the only programming I know is DOS Basic,
it is a fruitless but entertaining pastime for me.

2) There are at least two nc-like filemanagers for OS/2 - File Commander/2 
( and OS/2 Commander 
(, both shareware.  I don't think that the 
remaining OS/2 users care about licence too much.

OS/2 is waning but not dead, and I imagine OS/2 users care about licence
as much as any group of users.  I have been using OS/2 Commander; it has
some bugs and so far as I can tell is not being maintained.  A good port
of MC would certainly be an improvement.

3) It should be possible to compile MC with EMX using standard sources and 
build process (configure; make) - like the Cygwin port.

Interesting.  That didn't work for me and I assumed that was why there 
was an EMX-specific Makefile.  I'll look more closely at it.

If anybody wants to work on the OS/2 port (I mean fixing the problems, not 
just testing) please speak out now.

Unfortunately, I don't know enough to be much help.  It would be nice 
if someone from the UnixOS2 project at would get involved.
