First, I suggest you upgrade to version 1.0.4. I gather 1.0.3 has a bug in it. Second, I got it to compile under AIX 3.2.5. I doubt there is something iun the older version that is no longer there. Third, what compiler did you use? I suggest you use the AIX C cc compiler. I had some problems with gcc although it compiled. Cheers, Brian.
