Sun C 3.0 -> 5.8 Compilation

    I'm about to embark on recompilation of a basic interpreter that was
    last compiled with Sun C 3.0.

    I understand that there are substantial differences between Sun C
    versions 3.0 and 4.2 (for which there is backward compatibility with
    current version). I'm getting Sun Studio 11 in the hope that it will
    provide me with greater compatibility than newer versions of gcc.

    All I have is sparsely commented source code. Does anyone know of any
    documentation or other sources of info to help wade through this? Any
    help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    OR.. is there someway I could get my hands on the Sun C 3.0 compiler
    and would it run on SunOS 5.9?


    Thanks
    Karl

    I see you have already posed to the appropriate Sun forum, you'll be
    more likely to get help there.

    My advice for all porting - suck it and see!
