It has become necessary for me to install c compiler on HP-UX 11.23. I have all the CD(s) for 11.23. Could any one tell me with the CD that has c compiler?

The C compiler is not a "free" item - it is charged for - if it is on one of your CDs you would need a codeword to unlock it anyway.
Why do you need a C compiler? Do you have real C code to compile, or do you believe it is a pre-requisite for installing Oracle?

Well all you've told me is you have 4 x 11.23 CDs - I have no idea what those CD part numbers are, so really can't tell you which CD it is on! But each CD has a table of contents file which will tell you what is on it anyway, so why don't you look?
However as I said, even if you know which CD it is on, without a codeword, you won't be able to install it.

I have found the CD and the code word but i cannot find the executable file to install. I have the following folders in the path:
dr-xr-xr-x 1 root root 2048 Nov 8 2005 bin
dr-xr-xr-x 1 root root 2048 Nov 8 2005 include
dr-xr-xr-x 1 root root 2048 Nov 8 2005 lbin
dr-xr-xr-x 1 root root 2048 Nov 8 2005 lib
dr-xr-xr-x 1 root root 2048 Nov 8 2005 newconfig
dr-xr-xr-x 1 root root 2048 Nov 8 2005 tlinks
which of them has the executable.

Do you know how to install HP-UX software??
You shouldn't be hunting around for executables to install... you need to use the swinstall command... assuming you have the CD mounted as /cdrom then:
swinstall -x codeword=xxxxxxxxxx -s /cdrom
Then find the ANSI-C software in the GUI and select it for installation.

What ever you taugt me has worked perfectly. My only problem is i have gotten to a point where i do not see my way forward. I have attached the screen shot of of i have gotten to. There are about 6 folders and i do not where to continue from.

You should just mark and install the whole bundle.
Note this version is likely to be 6+ years old and isn't supported.
The latest version is A.06.26.01.
>There are about 6 folders and I do not where to continue from.
These are 6 products, you don't want to go there.
Just use: swinstall -x codeword=xxxxxxxxxx -s /cdrom B3913DB

The fact is we have a lot of the CD's and a lot of licenses. The problem here is that i am finding it difficult to associate a lincense to a particular CD. Because of this the installation complains of using a wrong codeword for a wrong CD.

You shouldn't need to. Just load in EVERY codeword into the codeword database and it doesn't matter what CD you use.
Just use: swinstall -p -x codeword=xxxx # not sure if you need that -s yy?
Note: It would probably be more helpful to future readers if you marked my previous post as the solution rather than yours.
