Does anyone know if I can move a compiled program (.r) from a PA-RISC server running OE 10.1C to a Itanium server running the same version of OE.
Has anyone tried this? Does this work?
Compiled ABL programs are platform independent, so they can be moved from RISC to Itanium to Linux to Windows to ... without any problem.
However, they are not bit number compatible. Programs compiled on 64-bit platforms are not designed to run on 32-bit platforms & vice-versa.
One might note that they are also UI dependent.
But, even if it works, I always recommend a recompile on a new platform. It is a good way to avoid surprises.
