Did you know that the compiler you use can impact whether or not you achieve optimal performance from all parts of your systems. Organizations often overlook the importance of compilers, often running new high-powered servers with outdated compilers that limit the servers’ potential. Or failing to update compilers that can improve the efficiency of existing hardware investments as more advanced versions are released. In practical terms,this translates into greater power consumption, slower response times,numerous administrative challenges—and... [More]

First, the authors describe basic usage syntax for inline
assembly (inline asm) embedded within C and C++ programs. Then they
explain intermediate concepts, such as addressing modes, the
clobbers list, and branching stanzas, as well as more advanced
topics, such as memory clobbers, the volatile attribute, and locks
are discussed for those who want to use inline asm in multithreaded
applications. See the article here.

Check-out this tutorial to learn how to use the interoperability features of the IBM XL Fortran and the IBM XL C/C++ compiler to integrate Fortran, C and Java source code into an application. The demonstration shows how to call Java source routines from Fortran and vice versa. Interoperability is useful for integrating parts written in different languages into an application. This enables developers to take advantage of language best situated for the job or easily integrate legacy assets into a new application.
Interoperability of IBM... [More]
This demo explains how to use the MASS high-performance mathematical libraries via the auto-vectorization features supported by XL compilers. The demo is built upon the examples given in a developerWorks article titled “ How to improve the performance of programs calling mathematical functions -- Taking advantage of IBM XL C/C++ or XL Fortran compiler auto-vectorization ”. Please refer to the article for detailed explanations on MASS libraries, auto-vectorization, and the Fortran and C source code.

ATTENTION: this blog post is now old information, kept here only for older service compiler information purposes. A new blog will show the new XLC++ 13.1.2 and future compiler's C++ Standard Compliance Status. C++11 (which was codenamed C++0x until ratification) is the new C++ programming language standard that has just been ratified and published . It supersedes the C++ 2003 (which was a bug fix on the C++ 1998) Standard and is called officially ISO/IEC 14882: 2011 IBM's xlC (C++) compiler has started supporting C++11 since... [More]
