Dear experts,

I wrote a network management program in Linux using C++. It uses sockets, SNMP, SMTP, CURL Library, Posix Threads etc. Now I would like to adapt the software to HP-UX (ia64) Which compiler is the best, GCC or commercially supplied ACC by HP?

Any comment and documentation welcome.

You are writiing application for multiple platform, I would prefer to use GCC,
(freeware).  One code for all (sometime you need to modify the code to make
it works on different  OS!).

If you only do it for  HP-UX, use ACC, it is easier to make thing to work.
