Thanks for the quick reply Jack,
I actually found a few cross-compilers for alpha here:
but my problem is that I need coff executables for the simcore simulator.
I tried using objcopy to get a coff file, but it seems objcopy does not accept coff format for the alpha architecture or I am using the wrong format. So far I have tried with the following output format options: alpha-dec-osf4, alpha-unknown-coff and coff-alpha.
any ideas? I am a noob with these sort of thing, so any clue about the right direction would be great.
Thanks and best regards
