alpha porting and errors
I am interested in beginning to port software to the alpha platform. I have moderate C skills, but have no idea what to look for when porting a program. Can you direct me to a resource that would be sort of an alpha porting howto? that would be most helpful.
Also, I am having some problems with running software that has been compiled withe -mieee flag, whenever I run mpg123, some other software (notably the seti@home client) crashes with Floating point exceptions. Is this a consequence of using this flag, or does this indicate a problem with the applications that I am running.
Thanks in advance,
