White paper


Abstract

Upgrading to the latest IBM XL C/C++ compilers makes good business sense. Upgrading puts new capabilities into the hands of your programmers making them and your business more efficient.

Content

New compilers are essential for fully exploiting new hardware but they also help you squeeze more out of your current systems. The last few versions of the IBM XL C/C++ compilers on AIX and Linux introduced a number of new features that provide increased performance optimization, support new language specifications, and exploitation of new hardware and software environments. IBM XL compilers are proven technology in scalable development environments and are the compilers of choice for IBM middleware as well as important industry applications and business solutions. New features introduced in the last few releases of the compilers on AIX and Linux, and their benefits are outlined in the following paper.
