The language in which BTrieve was written (8086 Assembly) doesn't prevent
it from running on another OS, ON INTEL MACHINES of course !!!
Novell has a version for Xenix, but ONLY for 80X86 family.
There is no version for other machines, because Assembly is not portable.

        Thanks. I'm waiting for more answers.
