******** SUN Studio 11 is now free to use for anyone. ******************

Download as much as you like.


You will need a Solaris 10 machine with a Developer Installation .
If you have installed All of Solaris 10 you are OK. I you just selected
END User installation when you installed Solaris 10 , You should do an
uppgrade or
a re-installtion of your server first.

The first thing you need to do when using any compiler is to configure your
Build environment in a useful fasion. To set up a user account on
Solaris 10 to utilise the studio 11 compiler suite, I reccomend the
setup in regard to the environment variables that you need.

PATH=/opt/SUNWspro/bin:/usr/ccs/bin:$PATH ; export PATH
CC=/opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc ;export CC
CXX=/opt/SUNWspro/bin/CC ; export CXX
LDFLAGS="-L/usr/lib -R/usr/lib -L/usr/sfw/lib -R/usr/sfw/lib
-L/usr/openwin/lib -R/usr/openwin/lib"
export LDFLAGS

CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS needs to be tuned to the machine you are compiling on
Two examples:

For a SUNBLADE 1500 workstation :
CFLAGS="-fast -xtarget=ultra3i -xarch=v8plusb"
CXXFLAGS="-fast -xtarget=ultra3i -xarch=v8plusb"

For a Athlon64 PC workstation :

CFLAGS="-fast -xtarget=opteron -xarch=amd64a"
CXXFLAGS="-fast -xtarget=opteron -xarch=amd64a"

Here is the User guide !


Have Fun !
