Solaris Package Archive -- GNUg188.8.131.52
Solaris Package Archive
What is it
GNUg77 is a version of the GNUgcc compiler which has had a Fortran compiler
integrated into it. This release of GNUg77 includes a complete GNUgcc 2.8.1
release. Do not install GNUgcc as well otherwise you will lose the Fortran
Remember to also install the GNUlibstdc++ package as well, (184.108.40.206 to
match this version of GNUg77), if you wish to compile C++ packages.
The compilers are gcc for normal
C compiling, g++ for C++ compiles
and g77 for Fortran compiling.

Like GNUgcc, GNUg77 is closely linked to the O.S. release on which it was created.
This means you cannot freely use a GNUg77, created on a Solaris 2.5 machine, on a
Solaris 2.6 machine for instance. The system header files are integrated into each
package during installation and very bad things happen if you try mixing those
amongst different operating system releases. Do not do it. You will find
that it won't install on the wrong Solaris release anyway.

Because GNUg77 contains the GNUgcc compiler inside it, you should NOT install
GNUgcc onto your system as well as GNUg77. The second package will corrupt
the first and you will lose functionality. I generally keep pace with GNUg77
and GNUgcc releases, so you will find you'll always get the latest versions
of the software anyway.
See the main packages README for installation information.
