Operating Systems AIX porting an application on 64-bit AIX version 5
# 15  
Old 03-03-2008
Hello..

I have curently have my Pro C code working on the AIX 4.3.3 which is a 32 bit system. The Oracle version is 8.1. Currently IBM xlc compiler is installed on this box.

Now we have moved the code into a new box (AIX 5.3.3) which is a 64 bit system. The Oracle has been upgraded to 10g..

I tried to recompile the code with the gcc compiler, but was facing some major issues in doing so. So we have now decided to go for the IBM xlc compiler. Now my main concern is that would the 32 bit code be able to compile on the new box? What all changes would I need to do so as to point to the 64 bit libs.

Any help in this regard would be highly appreciated.

Thanks
Megha
