CLI User Exit functions are general purpose facilities that can be added to the CLI workstation architecture on the selected operating system. These functions allow user-defined processing to take place.
  1. Change directories to the sample directory:

    cd <prefix>/teradata/client/17.10/sample

  2. Modify the CliLgnEx.c or CliPPS.c file in the sample directory.
  3. Compile and link using either the 32-bit or 64-bit version of the makefile to create a new shared object, libtdusr.so.
    To compile the 32-bit version, type:

    make -f maketdusr.aix

  4. Move the libtdusr.so file into the cli installation directory, and verify that libcliv2 exists in the same directory.
