Unfortunately, SilverPlatter have not seen fit to release source code
for their UNIX ERL client, and have released binary versions for just
three UNIX variants: AIX, SCO and Solaris. There is no support for
Linux, HP-UX, IRIX or indeed anything other than those three. You
might find that the SCO version may run under Linux if you use the
iBCS compatibility software, but it may not. I haven't tried it.
Have a look in ftp://ftp.silverplatter.com/software/ somewhere.
