OpenVMS …empowered


Kednos has closed its doors!

After many years supplying PL/I compilers to OpenVMS and Tru64 UNIX users around the world, from October 2016, Kednos will cease trading.  The PL/I compilers, run-time libraries and integration tools will no longer be supported or sold by Kednos.

However, this website will remain as a place to download software kits for those still holding valid licenses.  It also is still possible to request a hobbyist license and use the compilers in a non-commercial capacity.

What is PL/I?

PL/I is a powerful high-level programming language that is a superior alternative to using Fortran for scientific applications, COBOL for commercial applications and C for systems programming. Enjoy using the King of Programming Languages and don't worry about buffer overrun exploits.

Why should you use PL/I?   Find out!    How does PL/I compare to C?

From this site you may download both documentation and kits for the PL/I compiler for OpenVMS for both Alpha and VAX. As well as PL/I Run-Time Library kits for OpenVMS VAX, Alpha and I64. Also, you may download the kits for the PL/I compiler for Tru64.
