The c and c++ compiler is not on the
Solaris CD.
Is free on http://www.sunfreeware.com/

As Otetelisanu mention above, the complier from sun freeware is good enough for getting the job done. I use it all the time. I use it complied software from soure code, eg. MySQL, php, DBI, DBD etc.

You might need to down load the libs from the site as well.

Cheers!

As mentioned above you want to go to www.sunfreeware and get the compiler.  The name is gcc, which is the gnu version of cc.  You will find that it is better to download and get the gnu version than to use the sun version, as most software available was written with this complier in mind.  You may also want to download the gnu version of make, also available on this site.

I think, some of the include/header/libraries files are part of standard Solaris distributions.  

I am not quite sure the exact package name.  If I can recall, you need to select the "developer tools" (sounds like...) during the initial installation.  Solaris itself comes with "make" utility but not the C/C++ compiler.  Check the FAQ at www.sunfreeware.com, I think there is a complete listing of Solaris Packages that you need to install to get you new compiler to compile.

cheers,

depending on your Solaris version you might have Sun's bundled C compiler in /usr/ccs/bin (C only, not C++)
