I happened to install Sun studio previously.

I was not sure of how to use those compilers with amber.

The sun studio has suncc, sunf77, sunf90, sunf95 and so forth.

There are many compilers in it. With these many compilers, which one should be used with the configure option ?

I can comprehend on the fact that ambertools has an option for solariscc. So perhaps I can place a symbolic link for suncc with solariscc. ( I tried but it didn't work )

But for amber10, when I looked in for help, I am not able to see which compiler is actually refering to any of the compilers in sunstudio. There are options like ifort, pgf95...

I will be glad, if a possible explanation and procedure be given on this.

As far now, I downloaded the stable version of 0.9 g95 compiler, which was released in the year 2006.

Though, there is the latest released version of 0.91, binaries for the solarisx86 were missing.

 And as I am a bit new bie to the UNIX, I am not sure of how to skip that one particular test. I tried browsing in the archives, but I wasn't able to find the exact solution.

Looking in for help again!
