I am currently looking for a C++ compiler for my company to run on SGI Indy's
with IRIX 5.3. We currenly have cfront but are looking for something better.
The compiler must be able to support templates (so that we may use the STL).
We would also like it to support exceptions. Also, namespaces and RTTI would
be a plus.
I have considered gcc 2.7.2, however, I am leary of its template support. Also,
it does not support exceptions on MIPS based platforms.
I am also looking at Edision Design Group. I understand that it is a front-end
and not a full blown compiler, but that is ok. I have been to their web page
(http://www.edg.com/) and it seems promising.
I would like any information from people who are actually using EDG. Also, if
anybody has any suggestions for another compiler, I would like that too. Any
help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
