I am doing a port from PA risc architecture to IA64 architecture. We are using HPUX 11.23 on IA64 and compiler version HP aC++/ANSI C B3910B A.05.50.
My question is:
As IA64 is a native 64-bits processor, can we mix 32-bits libraries with 64-bits ones for an application ?
I know there is no problem to build 32-bits libs or executables on IA64 (via acc option) but my question relates to the mix of both type of libs.
Also, can someone can give a pointer to the last patches concerning HP-UX 11.23 and the HP aC++/ANSI compiler.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

Check this page for your Ac++ compiler.

I do not understand your question completely. It is true that you can build both 32bit ant 64 bit applications and libraries on IA64 machine.
The application linking the to a library is either a 32bit or a 64 bit application. So, if it is a 32 app then it links with 32 bit lib and if it is a 64 bit app it links to 64 bit lib.
I think mixing of 32 bit and 64 bit libraries are not allowed.

While IPF is a 64-bit processor, the default compilation mode for HP-UX compilers is still 32bit.
