Description

The IBM XL C/C++ compiler continues to provide more functionality and enhancements, especially in the categories of performance and optimization, support for language enhancements and APIs, ease of use, and new compiler options.

Performance and optimization

Many new features and enhancements fall into the category of optimization and performance tuning.

Architecture and processor-specific code tuning: The -qarch compiler option controls the particular instructions that are generated for the specified machine architecture. The -qtune compiler option 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. XL C/C++ V8.0 augments the list of suboptions available to the -qarch compiler option to support newly available POWER5+ processors and processors that support the VMX instruction set. The following new -qarch options are available:

  • -qarch=pwr5x
  • -qarch=ppc64v

High-performance libraries: XL C/C++ includes highly tuned mathematical functions that can greatly improve the performance of mathematically intensive applications. These functions are provided through the following high-performance libraries:

  • Mathematical Acceleration Subsystem (MASS): MASS libraries provide high-performance scalar and vector functions to perform common mathematical computations. The MASS libraries included with XL C/C++ Enterprise Edition V8.0 for AIX introduce new scalar and vector functions, and new support for the POWER5 processor architecture.
  • Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS): XL C/C++ Enterprise Edition V8.0 for AIX introduces the BLAS set of high-performance algebraic functions. You can use these functions to:
    • Compute the matrix-vector product for a general matrix or its transpose
    • Perform combined matrix multiplication and addition for general matrices or their transposes

Vector multimedia extension (VMX) support: XL C/C++ now supports vector multimedia extension (VMX) instructions and the AltiVec programming model.

Objects compiled with vector data types and related operations can run on systems with processor architectures and operating systems that support the single instruction, multiple data (SIMD) instruction set. The SIMD instruction set (also known as vector multimedia extension or VMX instructions) enables higher utilization of microprocessor hardware and supports performing calculations in parallel. The compiler provides the ability to automatically enable SIMD vectorization at higher levels of optimization.

This release of XL C/C++ introduces several new option and suboption combinations to enable and exploit VMX instructions.

Support for language enhancements and APIs

API and language enhancements can offer you additional ease of use and flexibility when developing your applications. In addition, it can make it easier for you to develop code that more fully exploits the capabilities of your hardware platform.

New type_traits library: This release of XL C/C++ introduces the type_traits library. This library is based on the proposed type traits implementation as submitted to the ISO C++ Standard committee for addition into the ISO C++ Standard, and as approved for inclusion in the Technical Report 1 (TR1) on C++ Library Extensions.

OpenMP API V2.5 support for C, C++, and Fortran:: XL C/C++ now support the OpenMP API V2.5 standard. This latest level of OpenMP combines the previous C, C/C++ and Fortran OpenMP specifications into one single specification for both C/C++ and Fortran, resolving previous inconsistencies between them.

The OpenMP API is a portable, scalable programming model with a standard interface for developing user-directed shared-memory parallelization in C, C++, and Fortran applications. The specification is defined by the OpenMP organization, a group of computer hardware and software vendors, including IBM. You can find more information about OpenMP specifications at

VMX APIs: XL C/C++ now supports the AltiVec programming model and APIs. Information about the AltiVec programming model and specifications can be found at:

Ease of use

XL C/C++ includes the following new features to help you more easily use the compiler for your application development.

Support for IBM Tivoli License Manager: IBM Tivoli License Manager (ITLM) is a Web-based solution that can help you manage software usage metering and license allocation services on supported systems. In general, ITLM recognizes and monitors the products that are installed and in use on your system.

IBM XL C/C++ Enterprise Edition V8.0 for AIX is ITLM-enabled for inventory support only. This means that ITLM is able to detect product installation of XL C/C++, but not its usage.

Note: ITLM is not a part of the XL C/C++ compiler offering, and must be purchased and installed separately.

Once installed and activated, ITLM scans your system for product inventory signatures that indicate whether a given product is installed on your system. ITLM also identifies product versions, releases, and modification levels.

New compiler options, built-in functions, and pragma directives

Compiler options can be specified on the command line or through directives embedded in your application source files. Additional compiler options or suboptions, built-in functions, and pragma directives have been added in V8.0 to improve and add new functionality.

Portable Application Solutions Environment (i5/OS PASE) support

XL C/C++ Enterprise Edition V8.0 for AIX continues to support i5/OS PASE on 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 i5/OS work management, security, backup, file systems, and database. As of i5/OS V5R3, i5/OS PASE supports the installation of XL C/C++ Enterprise Edition V8.0 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 V8.0 for AIX on i5/OS PASE.

Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act

XL C/C++ Enterprise Edition V8.0 for AIX is capable as of October 14, 2005, when used in accordance with IBM's associated documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it. A U.S. Section 508 Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) can be requested via IBM's Web site at
