Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Yes and no. i5/OS has two optionally installable components — Qshell and PASE — that many sites install as standard options nowadays. Qshell is the ‘native’ shell and can be entered with the STRQSH (or simply QSH) command. PASE is an AIX run-time environment that supports AIX binaries and supplies a few different shells, e.g., Korn, Bourne, and C shells. Basic access is via an easy API call — CALL QP2TERM.

PERL can be obtained — <a href=”http://www-03.ibm.com/servers/enable/site/porting/tools/”>IBM Porting Central for System i</a>. Note that Zend Core for i5/OS — PHP development and production environment for i5/OS — is discussed on the same page.

Lots of IBM documentation is available. And plenty of internet help is out there.
