I was wondering about what state the development of support for iBCS is in
at the moment. Is it possible to run INFORMIX for SCO ??

Pretty solid really. I'll try and remember to send the relevant bits of the 
README to c.o.l.a next release...

SQL yes. For 4GL you either need a SCO development system or an Informix 
port to Linux :-(. You can, of course, run the compiled binaries with iBCS 
on Linux.

  Oh, that's Standard Engine. I think Online needs a couple more tweaks to 
some of the IPC stuff...
