Subject RE: Problem with num_put on zOS
Date Wed, 01 Mar 2006 18:16:11 GMT
As far as I know the library was configured for zOS using sp6 code and that
was simply adapted to sp7.  I guess I don't know what you mean by
configuring the library.  I thought that was what I was doing by changing
the rwc_std_11d.h file.

This should be "If you don't reconfigure the library..."
