ICVM is pleased to announce Internet C++, also called ICVM.
ICVM is a C/C++ development system and virtual machine that will
allow applications to be written in C/C++ and run anywhere,
including over the Internet.
Because most applications available today, are written in C/C++,
ICVM will provide a cost-effective way to place applications on the
ICVM addresses the needs of tommorows Interactive Television
needs by offering an environment in which applications can be run
on any platform, regardless of host hardware or operating system.
This will allow C/C++ applications normally operated from a home
computer, to be downloaded and run on other platforms such as
home-entertainment units, personal assistants, and cable TV
ICVM is also designed to be fast, addressing the needs of the
Interactive Entertainment industry. Current Internet languages
cannot meet the requirements demanded by high-speed applications
such as 3D games. ICVM will meet those needs.
Tommorow's world of Interactive Television will feature high-end
applications, including online interactive entertainment. Those
applications that have the greatest ability to attract and
captivate an audience, such as hot 3D video games, will aslo draw a
premium in advertising rates. ICVM is designed with this in
GCC and related utilities are already open source. The ICVM
version of the GCC compiler will be made available. An open-source
version of the virtual machine is also planned. That version is
written in C and is designed to be extremely portable.
Details of ICVM can be found at this here.
