Is IBM still shipping that?  I'd thought with all their investment in 
Linux they weren't putting more into AIX, no?

Probably the only thing useful on the server is multi-dimensional 
arrays, introduced in v3.0. Most other enhancements have been on the GUI 
side.

Don't know for sure. Have you written support at runrev.com?

Most of the Unix OSes they used to support (Irix, Sun, etc.) are no 
longer shipping, with many of those companies following IBM's lead in 
migration to Linux.
