Hi, I have a general question: Do we really need a C++ compiler to use Sage++ ? It seems the answer is NO to me. Rationale: Sage++ is a library completely written in C (this can be seen by the process of installing Sage++ -- only C compiler is needed). Thus, if a source code transformation program is written in C and calls Sage++ library, only C compiler is needed, though the way that Sage library is organized is class-hierarchy-like. I have modified the Makefiles of your demo programs so that they only invoke C compiler. The result looks OK. Am I generally correct ? If my observation is right, it would save us some effort in getting a C++ compiler for our Alpha.
