   I'm always glad to see that VMS has not been forgotten here.

   I didn't realize that any VMS-specific files were being maintained in
the official code.  My current (1.15a) source kit includes an updated
vms/wget.hlp which should be up-to-date.  It's in:


   vms/vms_notes.txt (also in there) includes a list of files changed or
added for VMS.  Most are in vms/, but decc_ver.c and vms.c are in src/,
and there are some descrip*.mms builders in lib/ and src/.

   Starting with a "tar" kit, I get:

deb4# make syntax-check
No version control files detected; skipping syntax check

   config.h_vms gets updated with every version, so, if you're seeing an
old vms/wget.hlp, then I'd guess that you're also seeing an old
vms/config.h_vms.  But the latest one could be little or no better in
this respect.  Can you reveal the actual complaints, or do I need to do
something with "git" to get the required "version control files", or

> Thanking You,

   Same here.
