C++ Question

How can you find out the version of xlC installed on AIX box

So this should be quite simple but just want to see if I got it right.

I am trying to find out what version of xlC compiler is installed on AIX box.

I tried xlC -v/xlc --version which is not supported by the compiler.

I tried lslpp -L | grep xlC

I get following output but it confuses me (i am releatively new to UNIX world)

xlC.adt.include C F C Set ++ Application
xlC.aix50.rte C F C Set ++ Runtime for AIX 5.0
xlC.cpp C F C for AIX Preprocessor
xlC.msg.en_US.cpp C F C for AIX Preprocessor
xlC.msg.en_US.rte C F C Set ++ Runtime
xlC.rte C F C Set ++ Runtime

This is list on installed packages on box but whats the significance of listing .cpp file.

And which version is on my box?

6.0 or 8.0



Try xlC -qversion
