One of many name changes in the product's history (including
amongst others, Java somethingortheother, Workshop, Proworks/Teamworks,
and probably more I've forgotten). Of course, the versions and features
change too. It's always been a good product -- shame about the naming.

Sun Studio is newer.

The names have changed as well.

See

for the full lowdown.

True

I could not agree with your more.

The change from SunOs to Solaris was unnecessary and added a degree of 
confusion, which is still persists to this day, albeit rather small now 
as Solaris has been around a long while.

But the almost constant changing of compiler names is just ridiculous.

Is it done to keep the staff in the marketing department in a job?

When[1] the compiler names are changed again , perhaps "dynamic" would 
be sensible, to indicate the name is characterised by constant change.

[1] I think it is safe to say 'when' rather than 'if'.

Any guesses for when the next compiler name change will occur? Can we 
get to the end of 2006 without another compiler name change?

Writing a C/C++ compiler in C++
I've been thinking of writing a C++ compiler in C++ over the next several years, and I was wondering what's changed in writing a compiler? I've been pouring over these groups and there seems to be a lot of tools for starting but is the modern process still the same? As far as I understand it you write a lexer that tokenizes all the symbols, then write a parser that parses all of the tokens, then walks the parse tree to generate the asm or IL that gets shoved to the backend. So it seemed straightforward except that C++ isn't a LALR(1) grammer that Bison or Byacc accepts. Does ...

Could I compile "c" source with a C++ compiler (Forte C++ Update 2)?
Does Forte C++ Update 2 compiles C source code in ANSI C as same as Forte C udpate 2 does? Jacob, Park <bluejacob@empal.com> wrote: > Does Forte C++ Update 2 compiles C source code in ANSI C as same as > Forte C udpate 2 does? If you're asking whether "CC" will compile the same code as "cc", then the answer is no. This is true for ANY standard-compliant c++ compiler (compilers with different "language mode" like gcc don't count as a single compiler for this description). However, usually one can make C code "compilable" by C++ co...

Compiling C into C++
I'm trying to include a C header file from an external library in my C+ + program but when I compile I get the following error: error: expected unqualified-id before 'private' error: abstract declarator 'void*' used as declaration error: expected ';' before 'private' It didn't take me long to figure out that the offending C header file uses a variable with the name "private". I've reproduced the problem as follows: /* -------- a.h - the C header file */ #ifndef TEST_H #define TEST_H struct s { void *private; }; #endif /* -------- end...

C compiles, C++ Does Not

C++ to C compiler
Hi all. I've made a tool which compiles a C++-like language and produces good old C99 (with some gcc extensions in certain cases). Maybe it can get in the free-compilers list. It is interesting because by studing the -readable- generated C code you an understand how C++ features are implemented. It's also easy to add new features and extensions. The URL is: http://students.ceid.upatras.gr/~sxanth/lwc/index.html It is only known to work on a gcc/gnu-libc system and it is definitelly BETA. The parser is written entirely in C. I'm currently working on a builtin regular expressio...

C/C++ in MATALB or MATLAB in C/C++?
Hi I've been asking on the net how to use MEX properly so that I can use C/C++ in MATLAB, but information is not forthcoming. There seems to be a lot on using MATLAB in C/C++ but not the other way around. I understand Mathworks is trying very hard to sell the Matlab Compiler, but even so, why is it SO hard to get information about MEX? Or is it that I've missed something very fundamental, meaning that I'm struggling over something that is actually quite easy? Any thoughts and info would be great.

C as a Subset of C++ (or C++ as a superset of C)
Isn't it a lame use of human time and effort to maintain completely separate C and C++ standards? As in the words of Betty White about Facebook: "It seems like an incredible waste of time". Why don't the two standards groups get together and agree on a common specification for the ground which both standards cover? There would still be two separate standards, but they'd both be exactly the same for the common ground. The common ground document could be referred to by both standards instead of being maintained by both groups in individual efforts resulting in...

slime C-c C-c annoyance
Does anyone have a good workaround for this problem other than: just be careful!
