1 Hi all,
2 Has anyone played around with the various "better known"
3 compilers on Gentoo? By "better known", I'm referring to gcc, Intel,
4 llvm, pathscale. My situation is that I've just started my PhD which
5 requires me to do Finite Element Analysis, FEA, and Computational
6 Fluid Dynamics, CFD, and I want to find the "best" compiler for the
7 job. Before anyone says "Why bother, XXX compiler is only 1 - 2%
8 faster than gcc", in the context of the work I'm doing this 1 - 2% IS
9 important.
11 What I'm looking for is any feedback people may have on ability to
12 compile the Gentoo environment, the ability to change compilers
13 easily, gcc-config or flags in make.conf, as to whether the
14 compiler/linker can use the libraries as compiled by gcc on a
15 "standard" gentoo install and so on. Obviously there is much web
16 trawling to be done to find what other people are saying as well.
18 Any thoughts, greatly appreciated,
19 Andrew Lowe
