Since your application does not have to be integrated in the MIDAS
environment no specific requirements for compiling your program exist. That
also means, that you can skip chapter .
You only need to include the MIDAS Communication library libxcon.a when
linking your application. Like all other MIDAS libraries libxcon.a is
stored in $MIDASHOME/$MIDVERS/lib.
Thus, compiling and linking a MIDAS client module would be:
% cc -c myclient.c
% cc myclient.o -L$MIDASHOME/$MIDVERS/lib -lxcon -o myclient.exe
An example of an interactive MIDAS client program can be found in Appendix .
