GAP runs very well under UNIX. In fact it is being developed on UNIX workstations. GAP running on any UNIX machine should behave exactly as described in the manual.
GAP has successfully been compiled and installed on the following UNIX machines.
Vendor, Model, Processor, System, Compiler DEC, DECstation 3100, MIPS R2000, Ultrix 4.0, cc and GNU gcc DEC, DECstation 5120, MIPS R3000, Ultrix 4.2, cc and GNU gcc HP, HP 9000/825, HP-PA 1.0, HP-UX 7.0, cc HP, HP 9000/720, HP-PA 1.1, HP-UX 8.0.5, cc IBM, POWERstation 530, RS/6000, AIX, cc IBM, PC, i386/i486, 386BSD, GNU gcc IBM, PC, i386/i486, Linux, GNU gcc MIPS, M120/5, MIPS R2000, RiscOS, cc NeXT, NeXTstation, MC68040, Mach, GNU gcc Sequent, Symmetry, ---, Dynix, cc, SGI, Iris, MIPS R3000, Irix, cc and GNU gcc Sun, Sun 3/60, MC68020, SunOS 4.0.1, cc and GNU gcc Sun, Sun 4/280, Sparc, SunOS 4.0.1, cc and GNU gcc Sun Sparcstations Sparc, Solaris 2.5 cc and GNU gcc
We hope that compiling and installing GAP on another UNIX machine does not pose any problem. If it does, please inform us of your problems, and, if possible of your solution.
The section Installation of GAP for UNIX describes how you install GAP on a UNIX machine, and the section Features of GAP for UNIX describe the options that GAP accepts under UNIX.
