how to make a PowerPC executable??

Hi group,

I have a little problem out here. I have some codes with me which i have to run on PowerPC based target. I dont have that particular hardware with me. Can anyone suggest a cross-compiler or an emulator, so that i can compile my codes in linux and make a PowerPC executable from here. I tried qemu but it didn't work. Any help in this regard is most welcome.
If this post should belong to some other thread, please let me know..

Thanks in advance,

If your executable will run under a Linux / glibc environment, I think you can use gcc with the proper "-march" option, take a look to the gcc manual

Posting same thread in multiple forums is a bad idea. It confuses things.
