WCD is not OS/2 software, because it assumes the use of another product which is in use by the author. Your "home" link shows this problem, because its last version for OS/2 is *not* v6. The OS/2 version is outdated.

Hi, WCD listed here is a port, of course. Also on the "home" link WCD is listed as multi platform, and several ones are listed: "DOS 16 bit, DOS 32 bit, DOS bash, Windows Command Prompt, Windows PowerShell, WinZsh, MSYS, Cygwin, Unix/Linux: all Bourne and C type shells. OS/2 Warp". So, I don't get your point here...
