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

If you google it ("alpha cross compile") you do pick up some compilers that generate alpha code.  Is that what you are looking for?  I entered 'cross' as in cross compiler to see if there is one that you can use.  Try that direction and then (if running Linux) you can download and try some of the options.

I'm looking for an alpha cross compiler, in order to use the simcore simulator, which requires coff alpha binaries. 

I saw in the Embeddian website that there is a package for an alpha cross compiler, but the link is dead. Does anybody know if it's still available somewhere?

Thanks a lot in advance.
