Where can I find a BC compiler.


I was trying to install xscreensaver and after running the ./configure, it says that my system does not have "bc". I've looked around and i can't find it. Can anyone help me out on this. If it help, I am running Mandrake 10.0.

unfortunantely, I was unable to find any thing for mandrake 10.x, except for that(sorry for the broken links...), so here is the freshmeant.net project details page for bc:
http://freshmeat.net/projects/bc/

and, a direct link to the source for bc, so you can build it:

ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/bc/bc-1.06.tar.gz

I hope this is the bc you are talking about...2-letter names can sometimes be ambiguous
