C-Kermit UNIX Platforms

Also see:   C-Kermit 9.0 Platforms

UNIX is an operating system family that originated in Bell Laboratories in the late 1960s. In its beginnings, it was small, elegant, terse, and (since the operating system itself was written in a high-level language), portable to different kinds of computers, a rare feature in those days.

Since then it has evolved to be a large family of OSs, both open and proprietary, that taken together are one of the two most widespread of all OSs, second only to Microsoft Windows, although it predates windows by decades. The most well-known versions of Unix today are Linux, Android, Mac OS X, AIX, Solaris, HP-UX, and the BSDs (OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD, etc), but as you can see there have been many others through the years and many of them still exist.

C-Kermit has been built and tested successfully on 16-bit, 32-bit, and 64-bit architectures under portable UNIX versions including 4.2, 4.3, and 4.4BSD, AT&T UNIX System V Releases 3 and 4; and POSIX versions. C-Kermit 9.0 or earlier versions (in most cases, 6.0 or later) has been successfully built and tested on at least the following specific UNIX platforms:

The latest version of C-Kermit is not necessarily available for all of these platforms, many of which are no longer available to us, but source code and (in many cases) binaries are available for previous C-Kermit releases to cover all the platforms listed above.
