GCC for tha AMIGA...

Hi guys...

For the AMIGA fans out there...

Not sure if this is the right forum but someone has done a successful working port of gcc for the classic AMIGA A1200.

It contains a very large subset of *NIX commands and now AMIGA fanatics like me can include another platform, within the platforms limits.

The gcc version is old 2.95.3 but hey the platform is old too and opens up a new avenue to learn shell scripting.

The shell is ksh.

The source code is there along with pre-compiled binaries, much more too.

It is on AMINET here:-

Aminet - dev/gcc/ADE.zip

Get out your old A1200s and have a little fun... ;oD

perldgux - Perl under DG/UX. SYNOPSIS
One can read this document in the following formats: man perldgux view perl perldgux explorer perldgux.html info perldgux to list some (not all may be available simultaneously), or it may be read as is: as README.dgux. DESCRIPTION
Perl 5.7/8.x for DG/UX ix86 R4.20MU0x BUILDING PERL ON DG
/UX Non-threaded Perl on DG/UX Just run ./Configure script from the top directory. Then give "make" to compile. Threaded Perl on DG/UX If you are using as compiler GCC-2.95.x rev(DG/UX) an easy solution for configuring perl in your DG/UX machine is to run the command: ./Configure -Dusethreads -Duseithreads -Dusedevel -des This will automatically accept all the defaults and in particular /usr/local/ as installation directory. Note that GCC-2.95.x rev(DG/UX) knows the switch -pthread which allows it to link correctly DG/UX's -lthread library. If you want to change the installation directory or have a standard DG/UX with C compiler GCC-2.7.2.x then you have no choice than to do an interactive build by issuing the command: ./Configure -Dusethreads -Duseithreads In particular with GCC-2.7.2.x accept all the defaults and *watch* out for the message: Any additional ld flags (NOT including libraries)? [ -pthread] Instead of -pthread put here -lthread. CGCC-2.7.2.x that comes with the DG/UX OS does NOT know the -pthread switch. So your build will fail if you choose the defaults. After configuration is done correctly give "make" to compile. Testing Perl on DG/UX Issuing a "make test" will run all the tests. If the test lib/ftmp-security gives you as a result something like lib/ftmp-security....File::Temp::_gettemp: Parent directory (/tmp/) is not safe (sticky bit not set when world writable?) at lib/ftmp-security.t line 100 don't panic and just set the sticky bit in your /tmp directory by doing the following as root: cd / chmod +t /tmp (=set the sticky bit to /tmp). Then rerun the tests. This time all must be OK. Installing the built perl on DG/UX Run the command "make install" AUTHOR
