Linux Technology Preview #3


While in Berlin at the ISO C standards meeting Sun announced:

Linux Compiler Technology Preview (TP) #3

The announcement went out to the Sun Studio Forum for Linux users, here.
TP #3 has some interesting features:
  • Closer feature parity with Solaris/x86/64, with features like OpenMP, -xautopar, TLS, -xipo, -xprofile all work on Linux now.
  • And C++ is in much better shape.
Other than the usual 80/20 rule, i.e. we have 80% of the features working with 20% of the work, the only significant component of the Sun Studio compilers yet to be ported to Linux is the Sun Performance Library.

For more details see the SunStudio for Linux Forum where you can download the latest version.
