[archive] Acucobol runtime as a system service

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 16 January 2009]

I was wondering if anyone has tried, or if it's possible to execute AcucobolGT runtime via the inted.conf/services interface. Or is this how the Web CGI interface is handled?

If so, documentation says inetd.conf works with stdin/stdout/stderr. Can this be used with just normal cobol display outputs?

RE: [archive] Acucobol runtime as a system service

Unfortunately it cannot be used with normal COBOL display outputs. The ACUCOBOL-GT runtime has it's own terminal handling routines so you would end up with a myriad of problems trying to get something like this working.

When the runtime is running in CGI mode, as noted in the doc's stdin & stdout are the way information is accepted and distributed.
