GCC 3.x on QNX6.21 ?

Apologies if this topic has been covered.

I’m looking for a newer c++ compiler (in particular wrt the standard library) than gcc 2.95 that is shipped with QNX 6.21. Problems with exception handling are causing problems porting software.

I understand that upgrading to 6.3 would make the problem disappear, but I’m looking for other alternatives before I move away from 6.21NC.

Thanks in advance,



To other users attempting to upgrade the c++ compiler, I needed to rename the file from the download page to .qpr, and then used the installer.

Thanks noc - I really appreciated getting an answer so quickly, it made a big difference.

I think I’m almost there, but I’m still not sure what I have to do to: “move somewhere from the PATH @gcc - symbolic link to ntox86-gcc.”

I assume I need to make a symbolic link to the newly installed i386-pc-nto-qnx6.2.1-gcc-3.4.0, but I’m not sure where I should put it, or what I should do to disable the old version. Currently when I try to compile c++ code it complains that ‘C++ compiler is not installed’
