01052: Pro5 Rev 5, pro5 is no longer a executable under Unix


Pro5 Rev 5, pro5 is no longer a executable under Unix


In earlier PRO/5 releases prior to revision 5, running the PRO/5 install script and selecting STANDARD or SQL would copy the corresponding pro5b (STANDARD) or pro5u (SQL) executable to a pro5 executable. 

Starting with PRO/5 revision 5 the PRO/5 install creates a pro5 script file which calls the appropriate pro5b or pro5u executable based off the STANDARD or SQL selection. The reason for this change was to allow us to set the correct path information to the additional libraries installed for the new encryption capabilities. These libraries are installed in a /lib directory off the parent Pro5 directory. 

Alternately you can set the LIBRARY_PATH environment variable to the library location or copy the library files to the operating system’s shared library which will allow you to run PRO/5 as an executable. Copy the appropriate pro5b or pro5u to pro5. 

The shared library path environment variables for the 
Unix systems are as follows: 

Most others: LD_LIBRARY_PATH 

Note: This article does not apply to Pro5 Rev 6.
