    As many of my other posts indicate, I don't have administrator rights on my Mac. Is there any way to use g++ without "installing" it? For example, could I do something like this?
    /Users/myuser/gcc/g++ -args somefile.cpp
    I've tried it before, and it always game me some error like "stdio not found". Is there a way to make it work?

    It would probably be easier to crack the admin password than to get this working

    Basically you need more than just g++/gcc for everything to work, you need the binaries e.g. in ~/bin, but also the libraries like stdio in ~/include and ~/lib.

    You might be able to get the version from HPC to work by appropriate use of environment variables.
