Building a MIDAS Client Application

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 [*].
