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 /opt/teradata/client/16.10/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.
    The Native compiler on IA64 is not supported.
    To compile the 32-bit version, type:

    make -f maketdusr.lx

    On 64-bit Red Hat Linux, the compiler always generates 64-bit binaries. The 32-bit makefile is not supported on 64-bit Red Hat Linux platforms.
  4. Move the libtdusr.so file into the cli installation directory, and verify that libcliv2 exists in the same directory.
