" High-performance software developers may be getting a leg up on the latest hardware advances with a new set of open source software tools for developing scientific libraries created by U.S. university researchers. They claim the 'new breed' of software they've created, dubbed 'SPIRAL,' could revolutionize how computer code is written, particularly in light of the latest advances in high-performance hardware that is often, as in the case of IBM's Blue Gene/L supercomputer, running Linux. The automatic code generator, which provides a broad range of solutions to identify optimal signal processing and math functions, spits out high-quality code that is less buggy, saving testing and time, Carnegie Mellon University professor and researcher Jose Moura told NewsForge/ITMJ in a recent interview..."
