About IBM Software Development Kit for PowerLinux
The IBM® Software Development Kit for PowerLinux is a free, Eclipse-based Integrated Development Environment (IDE). The IBM SDK for PowerLinux integrates C/C++ source development with the IBM Advance Toolchain for PowerLinux and classic Linux debugging and performance analysis tools. The IBM SDK for PowerLinux provides you with an all-in-one solution for developing software on PowerLinux servers, including IBM PowerLinux™ and IBM Power Systems™ servers running Linux. It also provides integration of open source and IBM tools into a single graphical user interface.
IBM SDK for PowerLinux integrates the Eclipse IDE with the IBM Advance Toolchain for PowerLinux. IBM Advance Toolchain for PowerLinux provides the latest tested and supported GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) compiler versions for Power Systems servers, and is packaged with a set of processor-tuned runtime libraries. With IBM Advance Toolchain for PowerLinux, you can build and debug applications. You can also take advantage of the tuning assistant, which helps you choose advanced compiler options to tune your application for Power Systems servers running Linux.
IBM SDK for PowerLinux integrates open source tools such as GNU Compiler Collection (GCC), OProfile, Valgrind, and Autotools. In addition, it integrates the IBM tools Feedback Directed Program Restructuring (FDPR®) and Pthread monitoring tool, which are specifically designed to analyze and exploit Power Systems servers. It includes powerful porting and analytic tools, such as Migration Advisor, Source Code Advisor, and Trace Analyzer.
