Jim Sartain: We still have no
current plans to provide HP support,
but well continue to evaluate
that. Were seeing more and more
cases when were needing to
use this compiler. Were seeing more
and more cases where you need to
use it, and that might point
to us coming to a crossover point
where its worthwhile supporting
it. I think one of the other
questions that was asked at the same
forum was how many people were
using GCC. It was fairly low number,
but were seeing that number
Joe Geiser: That number is
increasing, especially with porting.
The thing is, Im leery to use
it with products that I might put
together with my firm or for
clients for support reasons. Its
clearly superior in many cases to
HPs C compiler. I would prefer
to use it, but on the other hand
without support I would be silly
to put something together for a
client and then have to support
GCC. I cant support GCC.
Jim Sartain: How many people would
this be a strong interest for?
Looks like maybe 10 or 15 percent
of the audience.
