C Compilers on Unix

Information Systems Department

This document describes the C compilers supported by ISD at UMIST on supported Unix platforms --- Solaris and Linux. Some information on using the make utility is also included.

There are two groups of compilers supported and available: the Workshop Compilers from Sun and those offered by the Free Software Foundation --- the Gnu Compiler Collection (GCC).

N.B. A separate document describes the GCC further: download, installation and usage on both Unix and MS Windows.

Finally, some notes on C compilers for Silicon Graphics machines running Irix is included (in particular, those running old versions of the operating system).
