When using some HP extensions

cc -Aa -D_HPUX_SOURCE

perhaps add others defines like
-D_POSIX_SOURCE
-D_XOPEN_SOURCE
-D_XPG2
depending on which functions you're using

Just to tie up the other answers here:

1) Unless you have bought the ANSI/C compiler, the short answer is : you can't (You can tell this by specifying the -Aa or -Ae options... you will get an error message if you are using the cc_bundled)

2) -Aa enables ansi compilation
   -Ae enables anis, with certain HP specific options (long pointers, $ in identifier, long long type)

   You may also want to set one of the following
    -D_HPUX_SOURCE
    -D_XOPEN_SOURCE
    -D_POSIX_SOURCE

Depending on what you want to compile.....(for any system stuff (sockets......) you will need to use _HPUX_SOURCE
