C Compiler Setup at Solaris7, which way should I go?

Hello!   Everyone,

I just recently loaded Solaris7 on SS10 for my training, and looked for "cc".   Alors, no "cc" came with the System software.   /usr/ucb/cc was found, but it was a script which pointed to /usr/ccs/bin/ucbcc, and there was no "ucbcc" in the desginated directory.   Thus, "cc" doesn't work, of course.   I may just need a good old "cc" for my some trials, and it must be fundamantal.   Yet still I have a trouble finding it.   What do you think?   I have Borland C++4.5 CDs, but they are for DOS and Windows.   Sun's big software package cost $995.   I just need a simple C and/or C++ only.   Thank you for your help!

download gcc 2.95.  It is much smaller than 3 and works for almost everything you would want to compile in Solaris 7.

Yes, some fraudulent waste of oxygen at Sun decided to start omitting the C compiler from Solaris about v2.3 or so. As liddler suggests, the preferred package is the GNU Compiler Collection (gcc). Since you lack a C compiler, you'll need the pre-built binaries, and they are available on sunfreeware.com. Don't bother downloading the sources, just grab the binaries, and install them using pkgadd. The package is built for them to go into /usr/local

Thank you all.   PsiCop is true, because I don't have C compiler, I even can't compile gcc souce code.   I need to grab the pre-built binaries.   Let me see.   I haven't connected my SS10 to ethernet, so give me some time.   I don't close this session now, for I can ask something a little later.   Bye now.
