I now finally have a AIX 5.3 box working and am able to run the 60 day trial of XLC 9 for AIX.
It's like entering a timewarp using xlc_r again as the compiler.
So now I'm wondering how the 60 day limit is calculated. Is it from download of the trial or the actual installation. If it's the installation I'm happy to rebuild the box from scratch every 60 days just to run xlc.
