Please choose the FlagShip port carefully according to your used system. Using a FlagShip port incompatible to your SUN system may cause unpredictable behaviour. 
Note: the C compiler is required only for the development, but not for the user of your application, which only needs the by FlagShip produced executable. See also section SYS.1.2 of the FlagShip manual for further details how to customize your application.
The required disk space on the /usr file system is approx. 15 to 35 MBytes for the FlagShip installation. Check the available space with "df -k  /usr" .

Licenses:

There are free licenses for test/evaluation purposes, see the price list and license terms for additional details. When you already own FlagShip license and want to upgrade to another SUN system, contact your dealer or multisoft
