Description

With the re-branding of VisualAge C++ to XL C/C++ Enterprise Edition, the IBM C/C++ compiler continues to get better, especially in the categories of performance and optimization, conformance to industry standards, and ease of use.

Optimizations exploiting latest POWER5 and PowerPC 970 platforms

XL C/C++ Enterprise Edition V7.0 for AIX offers a number of new optimization and performance-tuning features that exploit all PowerPC systems, including the latest POWER5 and PowerPC 970 hardware architectures. The -qarch and -qtune options now support optimizations specifically for POWER5 and PowerPC 970. The -qarch option controls the particular instructions that are generated for the specified machine architecture, while -qtune adjusts the instructions, scheduling, and other optimizations to enhance performance on the specified hardware. These options work together to generate application code that gives the best performance for the specified architecture. The coordination of these options has been enhanced in V7.0 to add support for the POWER5 and PowerPC 970 hardware platforms and for greater ease of use.

A number of new built-in functions are introduced in XL C/C++ Enterprise Edition V7.0 for AIX. For example, four new built-in functions are introduced for floating-point division. These software implementations of the floating-point division algorithms take advantage of the PowerPC Architecture™ and can be significantly faster than corresponding hardware instructions when used in a vector context. While the new built-ins are supported on all PowerPC systems, on POWER5 systems, the functions use the POWER5 instructions to take advantage of the POWER5 hardware.

New pragma directives are supported in V7.0, especially for loop unrolling optimizations. Also supported are additional optimization utilities related to the profile-directed feedback (PDF) compilation process.

XL C/C++ adheres to the latest international and industry standards

XL C/C++ builds on official industry standards, so your code can be ported easily among a variety of platforms and implementations.

ISO/IEC 14882:2003(E) Programming Languages — C++: XL C/C++ V7.0 conforms to the revised 2003 international C++ standard ISO/IEC 14882:2003(E), Programming Languages — C++ and conforms to ISO/IEC 9899:1999, Programming Languages — C.

Also starting in V7.0, XL C/C++ adds support for unordered associative containers, in conformance with the Draft Technical Report on Standard Library Extensions (TR1).

OpenMP API 2.0 support for C, C++, and Fortran: The OpenMP Application Programming Interface (API) is a portable, scalable programming model that provides a standard interface for developing multiplatform, shared-memory parallel applications in C, C++, and Fortran. The specification is defined by the OpenMP organization, a group of major computer hardware and software vendors, which includes IBM. XL C/C++ Enterprise Edition V7.0 for AIX is compliant with OpenMP V2.0. The compiler recognizes and generates code for the following OpenMP V2.0 elements:

  • Common delimiter for multiple clauses in the #pragma omp directive
  • The num_threads clause
  • The copyprivate clause
  • The threadprivate static block length arrays
  • Redundant declaration of private variables
  • Timing routines omp_get_wtime and omp_get_wtick

For more information about the OpenMP specification, visit the OpenMP Web site at

Enhanced Unicode and National Language Support: As recommended in a recent report from the C standards committee, the C compiler extends the C99 standard to add new data types to support UTF-16 and UTF-32 literals. The C++ compiler also supports these new data types for compatibility with C.

Support for Boost and STLport libraries: The XL C/C++ Enterprise Edition compiler delivers a high level of compatibility with the 1.30.2 Boost and the STLport libraries. These libraries were created to provide a set of reusable, open source C++ libraries that are suitable for standardization. Support for the Boost and STLport libraries provides increased productivity and better portability to these industry popular C++ libraries. For more information on the Boost libraries, see the Boost Web site at

For more information on the STLport libraries, refer to the STLport Web site at

Ease of use

New C++ compiler invocation: The compiler invocation xlc++ has been added for portability among all supported platforms. The invocation is equivalent to the invocation xlC on all platforms and is recommended. The invocation xlC continues to be fully supported.

The compiler invocation gxlc++ is also included for invocation compatibility with gcc.

Documentation improvements: XL C/C++ now ships with an Information Center of searchable HTML files. The search engine of the new help system may produce hits with greater relevance per search than that of previous releases. The Information Center can be installed on an intranet. The product help system is also viewable at

Starting with V7.0, a man page is provided for compiler invocation commands and for each command-line utility. The man page for the compiler invocations replaces the text help file provided in earlier releases.

Template registry improvements: The C++ compiler uses a batch template instantiation scheme that involves a registry of template instantiations. In this release, the compiler adds versioning information to the template registry file that is created. This information is used by the compiler internally to track which version of the template registry file format should be used.

IBM Mathematical Acceleration Subsystem (MASS) libraries included in XL C/C++

Starting with V7.0, XL C/C++ ships the IBM MASS libraries of tuned mathematical intrinsic functions. The MASS scalar library contains an accelerated set of frequently used math intrinsic functions in the AIX system library. The MASS vector libraries contain tuned and thread-safe intrinsic functions that can be used with either Fortran or C applications. The general vector library libmassv.a contains vector functions that will run on all computers in the pSeries and RS/6000 families, while libmassvp3.a and libmassvp4.a each contain a subset of libmassv.a functions that have been specifically tuned for the POWER3 and POWER4 processors, respectively.

Portable Application Solutions Environment (i5/OS PASE) Support

XL C/C++ Enterprise Edition V7.0 for AIX supports i5/OS PASE on IBM eServer iSeries™. i5/OS PASE provides a broad set of AIX interfaces, in a runtime that allows many AIX binaries to execute directly on the PowerPC processor of iSeries. An application running on i5/OS PASE is fully integrated with OS/400® and i5/OS work management, security, backup, file systems, and database. As of V5R2 OS/400 and V5R3 i5/OS, i5/OS PASE supports the installation of XL C/C++ Enterprise Edition V7.0 for AIX. You can now compile applications directly within i5/OS PASE — a separate AIX system is not required. Note that a separate and additional user authorization (license) is required for installation and use of the XL C/C++ Enterprise Edition V7.0 for AIX on i5/OS PASE.

Additional Version 7.0 enhancements

SMP thread binding: Shared memory parallelization (SMP) is implemented by creating user threads that are scheduled to run on kernel threads by the operating system. For some workloads, binding threads to processors can improve performance by avoiding the costs of thread migration. Currently, the AIX operating system takes care of scheduling of a thread. With the SMP thread binding feature, programs that are dynamically linked to the SMP run-time can have their threads bound to processors as specified by the user.

Language extensions related to GNU C and C++: A subset of features related to GNU C/C++ were introduced into the IBM C/C++ compiler in order to help with porting of code that was originally written for GCC. In this release, support for further GNU C features has been added.

Accommodation of third-party C++ run-time libraries: The C++ compiler can compile C++ applications so that the application supports only the core language. In this way the application can link with C++ run-time libraries from third-party vendors. Archive files have been added to the Version 7.0 compiler to enable this function.
