Writing Netware programs/NLMs

Question:
Where can I find information on how to write a program that is going to run on a Novell 3.x or 4.x server? Can you install an EXE and run it on the server?

Answer:
Programs that run on Novell 3.x or 4.x servers have to be Netware Loadable Modules (NLMs). Once you have accomplished building an NLM, you would then load it at your server's console by typing in:

 :load
 myfirst.nlm
NLM code can be written in a programming language like C or C++. You would also compile it very similarly to other .exe files, the main difference being that you would give it a .NLM extension.

You can contact Novell directly for more options on how to build and use NLMs on your server.
