http://hpux.cs.utah.edu has 3.1 and 3.2 packages. Any reason you specifically need 2.9.5.x?

Sorry, but I need the 2.9.5.x version for compatibility reasons.

I have a project that is compiled on three other platforms (HPUX10, SunOS, OSF1).
In the pass, when I tried using 3.x version of the GNU compiler, I had problems creating a stand alone executable.

So I have 2.9.5.x on the other three platforms.

I don't know if I can create a stand alone executable with 3.1/3.2 on HPUX11, but even if I could, I would rather have the same version of the compiler on all platforms.

Thanks

FYI:
I forgot to mention in my question, that I'm looking for the binaries.

I've seen info on the web about people getting this version to compile on HPUX11, but I have not been able to find any binaries.
Example:
http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc/2001-05/msg01581.html

GNU no longer supports gcc 2.x (as of about two years ago) and you should no longer use it.

Switch to 3.x.

If by "stand-alone executables" you mean ones that do not use system shared-libraries, note that such executables are highly discoraged in both Solaris and HP-UX.

chris_calabrese,
GNU still does support 2.x.  They still have the source available for download:

ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/gcc/gcc-2.95.3

The 2.95.3 version is used through out the industry.

Thanks for the info, but I'm not interested in advise concerning what version I should use.

I'm looking for binaries for 2.95.x version on HPUX11.

chris_calabreseCommented:
That you can download the code from GNU does not mean that they're actively supporting it.

GCC 3.x has been out for a couple of years now, and GNU only actively supports the latest release.

That others are using 2.x is not interesting. You still can't get 2.x binaries or support.

It depends on your interpertation of support.

In any case, that's not important, since I've already stated that I'm not interested in advise as to what version I should be useing.

The only purpose for this question, is to see if anyone has the binaries that I could download.

I don't think I can make that any clear.

You can download the binary from:

http://hpux.cict.fr/hppd/hpux/Gnu/gcc-2.95.3/

or

http://hpux.cict.fr/hppd/hpux/Gnu/gcc-2.95.2/

A lot of freeware in the same site.


Cheers!

yuzh,
It's great when someone gives you what you ask, instead of trying to push something you don't want.

Thanks a bunch!!
