Porting Applications to zLinux from other Platforms
Although Linux on System z is the same Linux that runs on other platforms, there are some challenges when trying to port applications to the platform that were developed elsewhere. These challenges are not well documented, which adds to the problem. By documenting these challenges, we hope to shed light on the issues and perhaps spur responsible parties to make changes that will help solve them. At minimum, we hope to assist anyone who is porting an application in their work.
