When I compile my codes using cc, I was told that language optional
software package not installed. How to deal with this? I know someone else
can compile these same codes with same machine. Do I need to set some ENV?
My machine is Sunos5.

Solaris does not include a C compiler with the operating system. It is an
optional package that can be purchased from Sun at GREAT expense.
The other person is probably using "gcc" or the GNU C Compiler, instead of cc.
This is probably more of a question for comp.sys.sun.admin or another
Sun-specific newsgroup. Then again, you could have saved time and asked the
"someone else" what they were doing to compile...
Any good samaritans out there willing to help a novice? I am running
Solaris 2.5.1 on an UltraSparc. I have SunSoft's C++ compiler which is
installed and running fine. However, whenever I try to use Make ... I
get the error message:
/usr/ucb/cc: language optional software package not installed
I am guessing that I need to tell my machine that the SunSoft compiler
is the default compiler and where it is located? I have't figured out
how to do that. Will somebody give me a hint.
