Brad,

If you compile with Target Release V3R1 or V3R2 on your Risc box, you 
can then save with Target Release V3R1 or R2, restore the pgms and 
stuff with no problem.

Be aware that if you do your SAVOBJ/LIB with target V3R1 and then 
restore to a risc box, it will take a LONG time.  Longer than if the 
object was compiled on a CISC box and then restored to RISC.  I do not 
know exactly what is going on in this, but if you are going to restore 
to a RISC box, save with a target release of V3R6 or better.

forseen ?

Hello.

We are currently thinking of upgrading our developement machine to a
RISC box (50S, I think).  We have multiple plants that use our 
software,
some on RISC, most on CISC.

We did some testing today and it seems if you compile an object on a
RISC box as V3R2, and run it, it does not get converted to RISC (or
already is RISC).  We can send it to a CISC box and it seems to run
without problems.

I guess we are used to sending programs from our CISC devo box to a 
RISC
machine and having it convert the object automatically.  We thought 
that
if we compiled to V3R2 on a RISC box, and ran it, it would convert to
RISC, making it unsendable to CISC boxes.  But, it seems this isn't 
the
case and that things will work out fine.

Does anyone have experience, or things to watch out for after we 
convert
to RISC and still send the object to CISC boxes?
