Re: Certainly not a typo in binuti

Hash: SHA1


As you expecting a simple yes or no answer, my very short answer is
simply No !

We aren't only speaking about hand-coded assembler ! The assembler
code I posted on my Web site is just one visible aspect that GNU tools
such as gas, gcc, gfortran, to be checked GNAT Ada, gcj ??? are
totally incompatible with HP VMS compilers.

In the very same vein, gcc generated assembler code on
HP-UX/IA64/B.11.31 is incompatible with the HP-UX bundled cc compiler
generated assembly code causing some surprises when gcc/g++ generated
binaries are mixed with the HP-UX runtime or analyzed by HP-UX tools.

For HP-UX, refer to my article at

Which market do you really wish to address ?
