installing GCC and G++ compilers

Hello all I have OpenVMS 7.3-2 with 3 node cluster and one system disk,
I have currently downladed the freeware from HP site (2/3) http://h71000.www7.hp.com/openvms/freeware/

and also downloaded the GCC compiler from
http://h71000.www7.hp.com/opensource/opensource.html

I wanted some idea of how to go about installing the compiliers. Do we need to reboot the system, close other applications ?

Regards,
Nipun

Re: installing GCC and G++ compilers

Nipun,

AFAIK, there is no current version of GCC.

You're probably refering to GNV. If you call "cc" in it's bash, GNV calls the DEC C compiler (which of course mut be installed).

In general, OpenVMS only must be rebooted after an installation has replaced drivers. Other applications are normally unaffected by installations.

HTH,
Martin
