Compaq Computer Corporation is pleased to announce the
availability of Compaq C Version 6.2 for Linux Alpha. This product
provides the same highly-optimizing C compiler technology for the
Alpha processor as found on Compaq's Tru64(tm) UNIX=AE and OpenVMS
operating systems. This product also includes the Compaq Portable
Math Library (CPML) and the Ladebug debugger ported from Tru64(tm)
UNIX=AE. Documentation includes man pages, a Language Reference
Manual, and a Programmers Guide.
Compaq C Version 6.2 provides the same code optimization
technology used in Compaq Fortran for Linux Alpha, both of which
are up-to-date with the very latest compilers for Compaq's
Tru64(tm) UNIX=AE. This technology can provide significant
performance improvements in C applications previously built for
Linux Alpha. In some floating-point intensive C applications, for
example, improvements of a factor of two or more have been seen,
while more modest improvements on the order of 15% to 30% are more
often seen for integer codes.
The public beta period has ended, and Compaq C Version 6.2 for
Linux Alpha is now available. The product can be downloaded
immediately from the World Wide Web at no charge, subject to
acceptance of an online license agreement. It will also be offered
on CDROM for a moderate price in the near future.
Support services include:
Free peer-to-peer Web-based support available from University
of New Hampshire (UNH)
Per-incident call packs from Compaq Customer Support
Subscription service which provides automatic availability of
new Compaq C releases
