cxx - option differences; temporarily available (CrCh226)

Problem description

Some Tru64 UNIX C++ compiler functionality does not exist on HP-UX. This functionality will be temporarily available in the Tru64 UNIX Migration Environment for HP-UX.

The cxx development tool compiles C++ source files and invokes the linker to produce executable object files and shared libraries. On Tru64 UNIX, the C++ compiler is invoked as /usr/bin/cxx. On HP-UX, it is invoked as /opt/aCC/bin/aCC. The HP-UX C++ compiler supports a different command-line interface than the Tru64 UNIX C++ compiler. Some features available on Tru64 UNIX are not available on HP-UX, and other features are available using a different option on HP-UX.

The Migration Environment contains Tru64 UNIX APIs, development tools, and commands and utilities to assist customers in migrating their applications from Tru64 UNIX to HP-UX.

Solution description

The cxx development tool is in the Tru64 UNIX Migration Environment for HP-UX.

Applications can use this development tool from the Migration Environment. Note that the Migration Environment is temporary.

The cxx development tool in the Tru64 UNIX Migration Environment is a driver that translates Tru64 UNIX cxx options to HP-UX aCC options and invokes the HP-UX C++ compiler. The cxx driver also has the -port_info and -port_command options, which provide porting information and command-line option translations that can be used to edit Makefiles so that they use the native HP-UX C++ compiler. See cxx(1) in the Migration Environment for more information.

For more information about using the cxx driver in the Tru64 UNIX Migration Environment, see the Tru64 UNIX Migration Environment User Guide.

For a detailed description of the differences between the Tru64 UNIX and HP-UX C++ compilers, see the Tru64 UNIX to HP-UX 11i Porting Guide.
