The main directory tree has many hard links. That means that files should not be
edited in the normal way, which causes an old file to be renamed and a new file given
its old name. This will cause the other links still to refer to the old file.
Instead, make a copy of the file, then edit it, then copy the new file back to the
old one: that will change the old one and everything else linked to it in other parts
of the directory tree. Numbers like 5, 3, 9, 18 in the second column after the file
type specification indicate the total number of files linked.
The latest sources for 32 bit Linux poplog are not included in this directory
tree. They are included with the latest 32 bit Linux poplog available here:
They may not be compatible with the files currently linked to in this master
directory, because of missing #IF guards, Sorry!
The sources for 64 bit linux produced by Waldek Hebisch were never fully integrated.
His 64-bit X86-64 poplog can be found here:

Understanding how to use the files in those 'master' directories will require making use of the documentation on compiling, rebuilding, and porting poplog, in this directory: http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/research/projects/poplog/sysdoc The 'Master' directory NB: the master directory makes essential use of linux linked files. So don't try downloading directly. Instead fetch the tar file and untar it to get the required links between files. It contains the following, where the C.XXX directories contain all files common to architecture XXX or operating system XXX the S.XXXYYY directories contain all files needed to build a system with architecture XXX using operating system YYY Note added 20 May 2018 In 2013 Anthony Worall, Reading University, provided a complete mips+aix poplog source package, including executables, now available separately here: http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/research/projects/poplog/poplog-15.0-mips-aix.tar.gz Gzipped tar file: 13M http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/research/projects/poplog/poplog-15.0-mips-aix/ Browseable directory with contents of tar fle.

I thought that was a mistake, but did not try to convince them because I am an amateur and they were all professional software engineers! NOTE ADDED 25 Sep 2010Background to this file
This directory http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/research/projects/poplog/src/new includes some of my attempts to keep records of changes made to sources in the 32 bit linux system. I may later try copying the current linux sources and documentation over the S.pcunix tree. That would update a number of things and may break some others! I have made no attempt to install my new package directory included in poplog in the master tree $usepop/pop/packages Neither have I yet removed things from the master tree that were moved into that packages directory. See http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/research/projects/poplog/packages Several things that are now in the new packages directory (e.g. teaching materials, stuff for mail, etc.) were previously in the general poplog libraries. I may have broken some of the links a few years ago when I tried to copy some stuff back into the source tree (concerned with objectlcass I think). So expect to find broken bits. There are other fragments I was given later by various people: http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/research/projects/poplog/src/gz/ containing: gz/AREADME.txt Summary of contents. See that file for descriptions of the following: gz/S.poweraix.tar.gz gz/pcsolaris1552.tar.gz gz/src-S.axpvms-15.53.tar.gz gz/src-S.powaix.tar.gz DIRECTORIES (untarred files) gz/duplicates gz/pcsolaris1552 http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/research/projects/poplog/src-iris-vaxvms containing iris-src.tar.gz S.vaxvms.tar.gz I think these are just duplicates of a subset of the contents of the master/ subdirectory listed above, but I am not sure. There are also some files which I think contain code that was used to help maintain the source tree, but I am not sure whether it is complete: This came from a sussex directory: http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/research/projects/poplog/master.tar.gz -rw-r--r-- 1 axs poplog 50363 Jul 24 2002 master.tar.gz Contains: lockfile/ lockfile/lib/ lockfile/lib/lockfiles.p lockfile/lib/lockf.p lockfile/lib/ved_lockfile.p lockfile/help/ lockfile/help/lockf lockfile/help/lockfiles lockfile/help/ved_lockfile lockfile/auto/ lockfile/auto/trylockfile.p lockfile/auto/tryunlockfile.p lockfile/lockfile.p lockfile/locks/ lib/lockfile.p master/ master/auto/ master/auto/newmaster_header.p master/auto/newmaster_transport.p master/auto/ved_master.p master/auto/ved_newmaster.p master/auto/newmaster_utils.p master/com/ master/com/newmaster/ master/com/newmaster/installmaster master/com/newmaster/deletemaster master/com/newmaster/installmaster.OLD master/com/newmaster/deletemaster.OLD master/com/rmmaster master/help/ master/help/getmaster master/help/newmaster master/help/rmmaster master/help/ved_master master/lib/ master/lib/newmaster/ master/lib/newmaster/delete.p master/lib/newmaster/get.p master/lib/newmaster/header.p master/lib/newmaster/history.p master/lib/newmaster/install.p master/lib/newmaster/mark.p master/lib/newmaster/params.p master/lib/newmaster/recover.p master/lib/newmaster/unlock.p master/lib/newmaster/utils.p master/lib/newmaster/vedcomms.p master/lib/newmaster.p master/master.p lib/master.p ============================ There may be something I have forgotten which is mentioned somewhere in the top level file: http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/research/projects/poplog/freepoplog.html
