Well, here's the problem. There is no /opt/ansic directory. The only two
compilers available are the bundled k&r compiler and aCC, so my options are
limited here. I spent over a month trying to find an HP-UX box in this place
that even *had* compilers (other than the bundled ones) installed, and this
is the best that I've found. Sorry, not best, ONLY. You'd think for as large
as this company is they'd have more development boxes floating around. :)

GCC doesn't dance and sing, it just plows over everything. "Oh, that's an
error? Oh, that's not even valid code? Who cares? I'll compile it ANYWAY!"


The other option is either I need to bug my friend to get his C160 running and
since I think he has the ANSI C compilers for it. Better yet would to be to
get my other friend to fire up one of his N class boxes, but that's not very
likely to happen anytime soon, he's swamped these days.
