Hi David,
Is that the "libtoolized" version ?
Anyway, shoot over the code and I'll diff it up with my version and
then push to CVS. I have been holding off on updating the VBISAM CVS
to see if Trevor had time to pick up on a couple of requests.

Note : This is still not ready for use by Cobol (As it is C-ISAM conform and so
has it's lackings) -
Total key length is restricted to 120 bytes.
Maximum number of key parts is 8.
There is no facility to specify own key comparison routine.
Using manual locking, there is no way to lock a record on insert.


FYI, I've managed to compile VBISAM and run some examples based on VBISAM using MinGW.

It is based on the CVS version, 1.04, plus the bug fix by 'Roger While'.

It is not yet a complete port as Win32 does not support 'flock', but uses another format. So record locks do not work.

But otherwise it seams to work.

I would like to post the source code, and maybe a binary, on the VBISAM web on SF.

In the mean time any one who would like to try this please send me an e-mail.
