What would be the lowest acceptable verson of the sgi mips compiler to run under Irix 6.5.17? And would I need additional Irix base software and or libs in order to install it, or would it install "as is"?

Im using 7.3 right now. there is many bug but if you have acces to update
its fine. Also Mipspro is included with a standard Irix dist (I think) you only need dev lib foundation(2 cd).

With Irix 6.5.x the MipsPro back ends are there (headers/linkers/etc) but the front end compilers are not. And the back ends are only installed if you installed them from the Development Libraries and Development Foundations CDs in the 6.5.x software package. I know that 6.5.8 (The full dist) had the MipsPro 7.2.1 backends, so they needed to be updated in order to install the 7.3 version of MipsPro.

MipsPro 7.3 is "nag-but-compile", right? Or was that 7.2.x?

All versions I've ever used including 7.3 throw up the standard warning but still compile anyway.

I dunno if this has changed in more recent versions.

Supposedly in 7.4 they won't compile without a liscense file. I cannot confirm this however

So, if I purchased a version of the MIPSpro C compiler off ebay, I shouldn't have any extra software/license requirments, right? :?

You'll atleast need the Development Foundation 1.2 cd as well in order to use the MipsPro 7.3 compilers.

Alright then. I should have at least that installed, but I'll check once I get home. This'll be listed under software manager as "Development Foundation", correct?

You probaly DON'T have it installed unless you have the Development Foundations 1.2 for IRIX 6.5 cd...it's not the one thats included with a full 6.5 install set(from my experiance anyway). An easy way to check is to just do a cc -version on the command line and see what shows. The 1.1 version of the development foundations will show 7.2.1 or something.

That won't do you any good since this is only the C compiler. What you really want is the C++ compiler. Which you incidentally can get for free when buying some stuff of Ian at http://www.13w3.com. Also, there is a license floating around in you-know-where...

Hmm, this just gets more and more confusing. I'll think I'll stick with GCC for now.

No, it's actually quite simple...in summary:

For mipspro 7.3(any compiler), you need the Dev. Foundation 1.2 CD aswell as the compiler cd, eg. MipsPro C/C++/F77/F90.

With regard to you "really" wanting the C++ compiler...do you compile any C++ code? If you don't than just the C compiler cd is fine. So I don't see how the C compiler cd "won't do you any good".

GCC is fine for most things, but some software just won't compile with GCC on irix machines...so it can be usefull to have a MipsPro compiler around as well.

You best bet is to wait for a full 7.3 compiler set to come up for auction..then you'll have what you need. I went thru the problems of just getting the C compiler cd for 7.3 with a batch of older 7.2.1 cd for cheap, and then couldn't install 7.3 because I didn't have the right version of the Dev. Foundations.

In general, would compiling software with MipsPro vs GCC yield a "faster" running program on the average 300mHz Octane or is there not enough difference to be noticeable?
