Whoa.... Cut him a little slack, Larry.
He asked for a version of MAKE fro VMS and somebody reply was a simple,
"You don't need it." With no alternatives or explanation offered.
As he said, not very helpful. And probably not very accurate either.
I realize VMS has alternatives, but someone who is not familiar with
VMS won't know this. And, if you are already familiar with MAKE and
don't know any of the VMS equivalent systems it is very likely easier
to install a version of MAKE than to learn a new system, especially if
you are working on what is probably a one up project. Or, possibly
the project already has a Makefile which would make MAKE the real
correct answer tot he question.
