Where are the Fortran and C/C++ compilers located?

Please note: The FAQ pages at the HPCVL website are continuously being revised. Some pages might pertain to an older configuration of the system. Please let us know if you encounter problems or inaccuracies, and we will correct the entries.

The Fortran and C++ compilers and the needed headers, libraries and tools can be found in the /opt/SUNWspro subdirectory system. The current version is Studio 12 update 1. The compilers for F77, F90, F95, C and C++, together with a development tool called "sunstudio" are in /opt/SUNWspro/bin. Various libraries are in /opt/SUNWspro/lib. This includes dynamic ones, so if your program complains about not finding "mickey_mouse.so", setting

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/opt/SUNWspro/lib 

might be a good idea. There is a lot of other stuff under this subdirectory, including online-documentation, so you can get help by pointing your web browser on the SunFire login node to
