PGCC Workstation

by The Portland Group

C/C++ package with parallelizing ANSI C and C++ compilers and development tools. Includes the OpenMP parallel debugger/profiler.

Description | More information | Demos | Pricing | Sectors | Platforms

C++ and ANSI C for 32-bit and 64-bit AMD64 and IA32 processor-based systems.

PGCC« Workstation includes The Portland Group's native parallelizing/optimizing C++ (Linux-only) and ANSI C compilers for 32-bit and 64-bit Linux and 32-bit Microsoft* Windows (NT/2000/XP) workstations. The C++ compiler closely tracks the proposed ANSI standard and is compatible with cfront versions 2 and 3. The PGCC Workstation compilers are native parallelizing C++ and ANSI C compilers. All C++ functions are compatible with Fortran and C functions, so you can compose programs from components written in all three languages. C++ function overloading, function inlining, multiple inheritance, and templates are all fully supported. A common set of OpenMP parallelization pragmas across C and C++ provide for simple and effective localized parallel programming without the need for explicit threads calls. Every copy of PGCC Workstation ships with STL library binaries.

Technical Features

A partial list of technical features supported includes the following:

  • PGCC OpenMP and auto-parallel C++ (Linux-only) and ANSI/K&R C compilers
