What are the technical advantages of upgrading your compilers?
The IBM XL family of compilers sets the industry standards for performance, standards compliance, and
support. The XL compilers support many programming languages (Fortran, C, C++, PL/I, COBOL, and
more) and platforms (AIX, Linux, z/OS, Blue Gene, and others). On most of these platforms, the XL
compilers are the main compiler in use, so they must provide stability and performance needed to make
these platforms a good investment. Three features of this family that stand out are: performance, support
of popular open standards, and customer support. This document describes the technical
advantages of these compilers and the value they provide for your organization.
