I think that it would be better for me just to keep the current version
because I'm in a very early stage and I'm just learning the system. I'm
writing toy programs right now and I think it will take me another week
or two to start working on our compiler. We are building a parallel
programming environment called Enterprise, the job of the compiler is
to basically modify user's code to transform function calls to message
passing code on a network of workstations. Right now we have modified
GCC to do the job, but as you may guess, maintaining GCC is a
nightmare, so SAGE seems to be the right tool for us and we're very
excited about it.

I'm using SAGE on a Sparcstation running SunOS 4.1.3C. Yes, I'm using
pC++2dep because c2dep and vcc didn't work for me. To preprocess
programs I use 'cc -E file.c' and then generate the .dep file using
pC++2dep.

Right now we only support C code that's why I want to use c2dep (or
pC++2dep), in the future we will support Fortran as well, so I'll be
using f2dep.

Thanks. Diego.
