January 2006 IBM C++ Runtime Environment Components for AIX

Download Description

If you need to run an application developed using the IBM XL C/C++ Enterprise Edition V7.0 or V8.0 for AIX compiler, or the IBM VisualAge C++ Professional V6.0 for AIX (on AIX 5L only), and if you do not have the compiler installed, then you will need to install the IBM C++ Runtime Environment Components for AIX ("the Runtime") package.

The following APARs were fixed in this Runtime PTF:

    IY78873 - Users of std::list<...>::erase
    IY79071 - istream::getline() behaves incorrectly
    IY79422 - Performance issues of munch component
    IY80656 - Memory leak using newer run-time
    IY80737 - January 2006 XL C/C++ V8.0 for AIX Runtime PTF

The following files are included in the Runtime PTF package:


Note: on AIX 5L the V8 Runtime has superseded the V7 Runtime. The final V7 Runtime PTF can be obtained from the URL below. The V6 Runtime PTFs will continue to be published until further notice for use with applications built with VisualAge C++ V6 on AIX 4.3 only.
