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 functionality.

Remember to also install the GNUlibstdc++ package as well, ( 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.

Solaris Issues
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.

Special Issues
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.
