Paul told me that when he first tried -Ae and it barfed he called HP's
support line and they were convinced that the compiler (which HP installed
before shipping) hadn't been installed at all. It took them a while to
find out the -Ae had gone.

Not sure if it translates to American English but we call this "shifting
