ZLIB Source updated to allow sucessful MAKE

We are looking at the Zlib source for use with the Crc Builder program which produces member and file level CRC’s for the data within the file. This will allow the user to verify the synchronicity of the files across systems. The source can be downloaded fro free and used at will as long as you stay within the terms described in the files, we are simply providing a copy which we fixed up to allow the REXX script to create the modules and programs correctly.

To create the necessary objects simply copy the save file contained in the attached zip file to your iSeries, restore the library (ZLIB) and then create the objects using the REXX script QREXSRC(MAKE). Add the library ZLIB then call the script using STRREXPRC SRCMBR(MAKE) SRCFILE(ZLIB/QREXSRC).

You should end up with all of the modules and programs correctly generated in ZLIB. The source we have updated creates the MODULES in ZLIB not QTEMP as in the original script. We did this so we can add the modules to a binding directory in the future.

We can declare no credit for the source, we simply changed the REXX script to allow it to sucessfully create the programs and modules. A change notice has been added to the CHANGELOG to this effect.
