Description

The XL C/C++ for AIX compiler continues to provide additional functionality and enhancements including support for OpenMP API V3.0 for increased parallel programming capability. This release of XL C/C++ compiler also supports the latest AIX operating system, introduces the partial support for the C++0x features, and includes performance tuning and optimization enhancements.

Support for the OpenMP API V3.0 specification

In this release, XL C/C++ supports the OpenMP API V3.0 specification. The new and enhanced features in OpenMP V3.0 include:

  • Addition of task level parallelization — The new OpenMP constructs TASK and TASKWAIT give users ability to parallelize irregular algorithms, such as pointer chasing or recursive algorithms.
  • New variable types in for loops — In addition to signed int, for loops can now contain variable values of unsigned int and pointer types.
  • Stack size control — Users can now control the size of the stack for threads created by the OMP runtime library using the new environment variable OMP_STACKSIZE .
  • New environment variables — Users can provide hints to the compiler on the desired behavior of waiting threads using new environment variables OMP_WAIT_POLICY and OMP_SET_POLICY.
  • Storage reuse — Some restrictions on the PRIVATE clause have been removed. A list item that appears in the reduction clause of a parallel construct can now also appear in a PRIVATE clause on a work-sharing construct.
  • Scheduling — A new SCHEDULE attribute, auto allows the compiler and runtime system to control scheduling.
  • STATIC schedule — Consecutive loop constructs with STATIC schedule can now use nowait.
  • Nesting support — a COLLAPSE clause has been added to the DO, FOR, PARALLELL FOR, and PARALLEL DO directives to allow parallelization of perfect loop nests. This means that multiple loops in a nest can be parallelized.
  • THREADPRIVATE — THREADPRIVATE directives can now be applied to variables at class scope in addition to file and block scope.
  • Parallelize iterator loops — Parallelization of iterator loops of canonical form now includes those with random access iterators.

Partial support for the new C++0x features

C++0x is the working draft of the next C++ programming language standard. XL C/C++ supports the following C++0x features in this release:

  • A new language level for C++0x
  • New integer promotion rules for arithmetic conversions involving long data types
  • Support of C99 preprocessor features in C++ for easier porting of code between C and C++

Enhancements to -qstrict option

Many suboptions are added to the -qstrict option to allow more fine-grained control over optimizations and transformations that are controlled by the -qstrict option. Since higher level of optimizations may require relaxing strict program semantics, the addition of the suboptions allows relaxation of selected rules in order to get specific benefits of faster code without turning off all semantic verification.

There are 16 new suboptions added and can be used separately or by using a suboption groups. The groups are:

  • all - Disables all semantics-changing transformations, including those controlled by the other suboptions.
  • ieeefp - Controls whether individual operations conform to IEEE 754 semantics.
  • order - Controls whether or not individual operations can be reordered in a way that may violate program language semantics.
  • precision - Controls optimizations and transformations that may affect the precision of program results.
  • exceptions - Controls optimizations and transformations that may affect the runtime exceptions generated by the program.

Additional enhancements

Other enhancements in XL C/C++ for AIX, V10.1 include new and changed compiler options and directives as well as the enhancements to performance related compiler options such as -qreport and -qsmp=omp.

Product positioning

IBM XL C/C++ for AIX, V10.1 is part of a larger family of IBM C, C++, and Fortran compilers. These compilers are derived from a common code base that shares compiler function and optimization technologies for a variety of platforms and programming languages. Programming environments include AIX, IBM Blue Gene/L, IBM Blue Gene/P, the Cell Broadband Engine™ architecture, IBM i, selected Linux distributions, z/OS, and z/VM. The common code base, along with compliance with international programming language standards, helps support consistent compiler performance and ease of program portability across multiple operating systems and hardware platforms.

In addition to the support of revised 2003 international C++ standard ISO/IEC 14882:2003(E), Programming Languages — C++, the TR1 library extensions for C++, and ISO/IEC 9899:1999, Programming Languages — C, this release introduces support for a new version of the standard for the C++ programming language — specifically C++0x. This standard has not yet been officially adopted but we are beginning to support some of its features. With representation from the IBM compiler development team on the ISO/ANSI C committee and the ISO/ANSI C++ committee, IBM is in a position to understand the latest updates, clarifications, and recommendations to the C and C++ standards. Support of programming language standards allows for portability of your source code among a variety of compiler implementations.

Terms and conditions

The information provided in this announcement letter is for reference and convenience purposes only. The terms and conditions that govern any transaction with IBM are contained in the applicable contract documents such as the IBM International Program License Agreement, IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, and the IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

Licensing: IBM International Program License Agreement including the License Information document and Proof of Entitlement (PoE) govern your use of the program. PoEs are required for all authorized use. Part number products only, offered outside of Passport Advantage, where applicable, are license only and do not include Software Maintenance.

This software license includes Software Maintenance, previously referred to as Software Subscription and Technical Support.

Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance: The IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance (Z125-6011) agreement applies for maintenance and does not require customer signatures.

License Information form number: L-JYEE-7EPR28

The program's License Information will be available for review on the IBM Software License Agreement Web site

Limited warranty applies: Yes

Limited warranty: IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found at

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support: Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of three years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Maintenance is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Maintenance also provides you with access to updates, releases, and versions of the program. You will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

Money-back guarantee: If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For clarification, note that (1) for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program and (2) for programs acquired under any of IBM On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.

Authorization for use on home/portable computer: The program may be stored on the primary machine and another machine, provided that the program is not in active use on both machines at the same time.

Other terms

Volume orders (IVO): Yes, contact your IBM representative.

Passport Advantage applies: Yes, and through the Passport Advantage Web site at

Usage restriction: Yes

For additional information, refer to the License Information document that is available on the IBM Software License Agreement Web site

Software Maintenance applies: Yes. Software Maintenance, previously referred to as Software Subscription and Technical Support, is now included in the Passport Advantage Agreement. Installation and technical support for the products announced in this announcement is provided by the Software Maintenance offering of the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement. This fee service enhances customer productivity by providing voice or electronic access into the IBM support organizations.

IBM includes one year of Software Maintenance with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Maintenance can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option.

While your Software Maintenance is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your routine, short duration installation and usage (how-to) questions, and code-related questions. IBM provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, only to your information systems (IS) technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center. (This assistance is not available to your end users.) IBM provides Severity 1 assistance 24 hours a day, every day of the year. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Handbook at

Software Maintenance does not include assistance for the design and development of applications, your use of programs in other than their specified operating environment, or failures caused by products for which IBM is not responsible under this agreement.

All distributed software licenses include Software Maintenance (Software Subscription and Technical Support) for a period of 12 months from the date of acquisition, providing a streamlined way to acquire IBM software and assure technical support coverage for all licenses. Extending coverage, for a total of three years from date of acquisition, may be elected.
