It should only be include files VMS has issues with.

If that's the problem, then it shouldn't be much trouble to have a separate script that rewrites the file names and source code to follow the POSIX portable filename rules. We could include that script as a separate file in Gnulib, or perhaps as a gnulib-tool option. This would avoid the need to change existing code, and I assume Bruno would be OK with something along those lines.

I already have a VMS specific edit script that can update the 7 modules in gnulib that include float++ that I can run as part of a prebuild script.

At the time I made that reply, my only Internet access was a small cell phone screen, so it was both hard to type or read other pages.

For this pass, I am mainly trying to get everything to compile with a minimum amount of VMS specific changes and support files.

That being said, wouldn't it be simpler for you to switch your VMS development host's file system to ODS-5? That way, you should be able to use these file names as-is, and you'll be less likely to run into similar problems with programs other than Gnulib.

The development host system is ODS-5 on Alpha/IA64.

The not handling of #include "float++" is a bug in the compiler that was recently discovered when I updated the GNV Coreutils package.

The compiler also sometimes has problems with #include "../xxxx.h", which need similar edits to work around.
