-Noteworthy changes in GCC after EGCS 1.1.
------------------------------------------
-
-Target specific NEWS
-
- RS6000/PowerPC: -mcpu=401 was added as an alias for -mcpu=403. -mcpu=e603e
- was added to do -mcpu=603e and -msoft-float.
-
-Noteworthy changes in GCC for EGCS 1.1.
----------------------------------------
-
-The compiler now implements global common subexpression elimination (gcse) as
-well as global constant/copy propagation. (link to gcse page).
-
-More major improvements have been made to the alias analysis code. A new
-option to allow front-ends to provide alias information to the optimizers
-has also been added (-fstrict-aliasing). -fstrict-aliasing is off by default
-now, but will be enabled by default in the future. (link to alias page)
-
-Major changes continue in the exception handling support. This release
-includes some changes to reduce static overhead for exception handling. It
-also includes some major changes to the setjmp/longjmp based EH mechanism to
-make it less pessimistic. And finally, major infrastructure improvements
-to the dwarf2 EH mechanism have been made to make our EH support extensible.
-
-We have fixed the infamous security problems with temporary files.
-
-The "regmove" optimization pass has been nearly completely rewritten. It now
-uses much more information about the target to determine profitability of
-transformations.
-
-The compiler now recomputes register usage information immediately before
-register allocation. Previously such information was only not kept up to
-date after instruction combination which led to poor register allocation
-choices by our priority based register allocator.
-
-The register reloading phase of the compiler has been improved to better
-optimize spill code. This primarily helps targets which generate lots of
-spills (like the x86 ports and many register poor embedded ports).
-
-A few changes in the heuristics used by the register allocator and scheduler
-have been made which can significantly improve performance for certain
-applications.
-
-The compiler's branch shortening algorithms have been significantly improved
-to work better on targets which align jump targets.
-
-The compiler now supports the "ADDRESSOF" optimization which can significantly
-reduce the overhead for certain inline calls (and inline calls in general).
-
-The compiler now supports a code size optimization switch (-Os). When enabled
-the compiler will prefer optimizations which improve code size over those
-which improve code speed.
-
-The compiler has been improved to completely eliminate library calls which
-compute constant values. This is particularly useful on machines which
-do not have integer mul/div or floating point support on-chip.
-
-GCC now supports a "--help" option to print detailed help information.
-
-cpplib has been greatly improved. It is probably useable for some sites now
-(major missing feature is trigraphs).
-
-Memory footprint for the compiler has been significantly reduced for certain
-pathalogical cases.
-
-Build time improvements for targets which support lots of sched parameters
-(alpha and mips primarily).
-
-Compile time for certain programs using large constant initializers has been
-improved (effects glibc significantly).
-
-Plus an incredible number of infrastructure changes, warning fixes, bugfixes
-and local optimizations.
-
-Various improvements have been made to better support cross compilations. They
-are still not easy, but they are improving.
-
-Target specific NEWS
-
- Sparc: Now includes V8 plus and V9 support, lots of tuning for Ultrasparcs
- and uses the Haifa scheduler by default.
-
- Alpha: EV6 tuned, optimized expansion of memcpy/bzero.
-
- x86: Data in the static store is aligned per Intel recommendations. Jump
- targets are aligned per Intel recommendations. Improved epilogue
- sequences for Pentium chips. Backend improvements which should help
- register allocation on all x86 variants. Support for PPro conditional
- move instructions has been fixed and enabled. Random changes
- throughout the port to make generated code more Pentium friendly.
- Improved support for 64bit integer operations.
- Unixware 7, a System V Release 5 target is now supported.
- SCO OpenServer targets can support GAS. See gcc/INSTALL for details.
-
- RS6000/PowerPC: Includes AIX4.3 support as well as PowerPC64 support.
- Haifa instruction scheduling is enabled by default now.
-
- MIPS: Multiply/Multiply-Add support has been largely rewritten to generate
- more efficient code. Includes mips16 support.
-
- M68K: Various micro-optimizations and Coldfire fixes.
-
- M32r: Major improvements to this port.
-
- Arm: Includes Thumb and super interworking support.
-
-EGCS includes all gcc2 changes up to and including the June 9, 1998 snapshot.
-
-
-Noteworthy changes in GCC version 2.8.1
----------------------------------------
-
-Numerous bugs have been fixed and some minor performance
-improvements (compilation speed) have been made.
-
-Noteworthy changes in GCC version 2.8.0
----------------------------------------
-
-A major change in this release is the addition of a framework for
-exception handling, currently used by C++. Many internal changes and
-optimization improvements have been made. These increase the
-maintainability and portability of GCC. GCC now uses autoconf to
-compute many host parameters.
-
-The following lists changes that add new features or targets.
-
-See cp/NEWS for new features of C++ in this release.
-
-New tools and features:
-
- The Dwarf 2 debugging information format is supported on ELF systems, and
- is the default for -ggdb where available. It can also be used for C++.
- The Dwarf version 1 debugging format is also permitted for C++, but
- does not work well.
-
- gcov.c is provided for test coverage analysis and branch profiling
- analysis is also supported; see -fprofile-arcs, -ftest-coverage,
- and -fbranch-probabilities.
-
- Support for the Checker memory checking tool.
-
- New switch, -fstack-check, to check for stack overflow on systems that
- don't have such built into their ABI.
-
- New switches, -Wundef and -Wno-undef to warn if an undefined identifier
- is evaluated in an #if directive.
-
- Options -Wall and -Wimplicit now cause GCC to warn about implicit int
- in declarations (e.g. `register i;'), since the C Standard committee
- has decided to disallow this in the next revision of the standard;
- -Wimplicit-function-declarations and -Wimplicit-int are subsets of
- this.
-
- Option -Wsign-compare causes GCC to warn about comparison of signed and
- unsigned values.
-
- Add -dI option of cccp for cxref.
-
-New features in configuration, installation and specs file handling:
-
- New option --enable-c-cpplib to configure script.
-
- You can use --with-cpu on the configure command to specify the default
- CPU that GCC should generate code for.
-
- The -specs=file switch allows you to override default specs used in
- invoking programs like cc1, as, etc.
-
- Allow including one specs file from another and renaming a specs
- variable.
-
- You can now relocate all GCC files with a single environment variable
- or a registry entry under Windows 95 and Windows NT.
-
-Changes in Objective-C:
-
- The Objective-C Runtime Library has been made thread-safe.
-
- The Objective-C Runtime Library contains an interface for creating
- mutexes, condition mutexes, and threads; it requires a back-end
- implementation for the specific platform and/or thread package.
- Currently supported are DEC/OSF1, IRIX, Mach, OS/2, POSIX, PCThreads,
- Solaris, and Windows32. The --enable-threads parameter can be used
- when configuring GCC to enable and select a thread back-end.
-
- Objective-C is now configured as separate front-end language to GCC,
- making it more convenient to conditionally build it.
-
- The internal structures of the Objective-C Runtime Library have
- changed sufficiently to warrant a new version number; now version 8.
- Programs compiled with an older version must be recompiled.
-
- The Objective-C Runtime Library can be built as a DLL on Windows 95
- and Windows NT systems.
-
- The Objective-C Runtime Library implements +load.
-
-The following new targets are supported (see also list under each
-individual CPU below):
-
- Embedded target m32r-elf.
- Embedded Hitachi Super-H using ELF.
- RTEMS real-time system on various CPU targets.
- ARC processor.
- NEC V850 processor.
- Matsushita MN10200 processor.
- Matsushita MN10300 processor.
- Sparc and PowerPC running on VxWorks.
- Support both glibc versions 1 and 2 on Linux-based GNU systems.
-
-New features for DEC Alpha systems:
-
- Allow detailed specification of IEEE fp support:
- -mieee, -mieee-with-inexact, and -mieee-conformant
- -mfp-trap-mode=xxx, -mfp-round-mode=xxx, -mtrap-precision=xxx
- -mcpu=xxx for CPU selection
- Support scheduling parameters for EV5.
- Add support for BWX, CIX, and MAX instruction set extensions.
- Support Linux-based GNU systems.
- Support VMS.
-
-Additional supported processors and systems for MIPS targets:
-
- MIPS4 instruction set.
- R4100, R4300 and R5000 processors.
- N32 and N64 ABI.
- IRIX 6.2.
- SNI SINIX.
-
-New features for Intel x86 family:
-
- Add scheduling parameters for Pentium and Pentium Pro.
- Support stabs on Solaris-x86.
- Intel x86 processors running the SCO OpenServer 5 family.
- Intel x86 processors running DG/UX.
- Intel x86 using Cygwin32 or Mingw32 on Windows 95 and Windows NT.
-
-New features for Motorola 68k family:
-
- Support for 68060 processor.
- More consistent switches to specify processor.
- Motorola 68k family running AUX.
- 68040 running pSOS, ELF object files, DBX debugging.
- Coldfire variant of Motorola m68k family.
-
-New features for the HP PA RISC:
-
- -mspace and -mno-space
- -mlong-load-store and -mno-long-load-store
- -mbig-switch -mno-big-switch
-
- GCC on the PA requires either gas-2.7 or the HP assembler; for best
- results using GAS is highly recommended. GAS is required for -g and
- exception handling support.
-
-New features for SPARC-based systems:
-
- The ultrasparc cpu.
- The sparclet cpu, supporting only a.out file format.
- Sparc running SunOS 4 with the GNU assembler.
- Sparc running the Linux-based GNU system.
- Embedded Sparc processors running the ELF object file format.
- -mcpu=xxx
- -mtune=xxx
- -malign-loops=xxx
- -malign-jumps=xxx
- -malign-functions=xxx
- -mimpure-text and -mno-impure-text
-
- Options -mno-v8 and -mno-sparclite are no longer supported on SPARC
- targets. Options -mcypress, -mv8, -msupersparc, -msparclite, -mf930,
- and -mf934 are deprecated and will be deleted in GCC 2.9. Use
- -mcpu=xxx instead.
-
-New features for rs6000 and PowerPC systems:
-
- Solaris 2.51 running on PowerPC's.
- The Linux-based GNU system running on PowerPC's.
- -mcpu=604e,602,603e,620,801,823,mpc505,821,860,power2
- -mtune=xxx
- -mrelocatable-lib, -mno-relocatable-lib
- -msim, -mmve, -memb
- -mupdate, -mno-update
- -mfused-madd, -mno-fused-madd
-
- -mregnames
- -meabi
- -mcall-linux, -mcall-solaris, -mcall-sysv-eabi, -mcall-sysv-noeabi
- -msdata, -msdata=none, -msdata=default, -msdata=sysv, -msdata=eabi
- -memb, -msim, -mmvme
- -myellowknife, -mads
- wchar_t is now of type long as per the ABI, not unsigned short.
- -p/-pg support
- -mcpu=403 now implies -mstrict-align.
- Implement System V profiling.
-
- Aix 4.1 GCC targets now default to -mcpu=common so that programs
- compiled can be moved between rs6000 and powerpc based systems. A
- consequence of this is that -static won't work, and that some programs
- may be slightly slower.
-
- You can select the default value to use for -mcpu=xxx on rs6000 and
- powerpc targets by using the --with-cpu=xxx option when configuring the
- compiler. In addition, a new options, -mtune=xxx was added that
- selects the machine to schedule for but does not select the
- architecture level.
-
- Directory names used for storing the multilib libraries on System V
- and embedded PowerPC systems have been shortened to work with commands
- like tar that have fixed limits on pathname size.
-
-New features for the Hitachi H8/300(H):
-
- -malign-300
- -ms (for the Hitachi H8/S processor)
- -mint32
-
-New features for the ARM:
-
- -march=xxx, -mtune=xxx, -mcpu=xxx
- Support interworking with Thumb code.
- ARM processor with a.out object format, COFF, or AOF assembler.
- ARM on "semi-hosted" platform.
- ARM running NetBSD.
- ARM running the Linux-based GNU system.
-
-New feature for Solaris systems:
-
- GCC installation no longer makes a copy of system include files,
- thus insulating GCC better from updates to the operating system.
-
-
-Noteworthy changes in GCC version 2.7.2
----------------------------------------
-
-A few bugs have been fixed (most notably the generation of an
-invalid assembler opcode on some RS/6000 systems).
-
-Noteworthy changes in GCC version 2.7.1
----------------------------------------
-
-This release fixes numerous bugs (mostly minor) in GCC 2.7.0, but
-also contains a few new features, mostly related to specific targets.
-
-Major changes have been made in code to support Windows NT.
-
-The following new targets are supported:
-
- 2.9 BSD on PDP-11
- Linux on m68k
- HP/UX version 10 on HP PA RISC (treated like version 9)
- DEC Alpha running Windows NT
-
-When parsing C, GCC now recognizes C++ style `//' comments unless you
-specify `-ansi' or `-traditional'.
-
-The PowerPC System V targets (powerpc-*-sysv, powerpc-*-eabi) now use the
-calling sequence specified in the System V Application Binary Interface
-Processor Supplement (PowerPC Processor ABI Supplement) rather than the calling
-sequence used in GCC version 2.7.0. That calling sequence was based on the AIX
-calling sequence without function descriptors. To compile code for that older
-calling sequence, either configure the compiler for powerpc-*-eabiaix or use
-the -mcall-aix switch when compiling and linking.
-
-Noteworthy changes in GCC version 2.7.0
----------------------------------------
-
-GCC now works better on systems that use ".obj" and ".exe" instead of
-".o" and no extension. This involved changes to the driver program,
-gcc.c, to convert ".o" names to ".obj" and to GCC's Makefile to use
-".obj" and ".exe" in filenames that are not targets. In order to
-build GCC on such systems, you may need versions of GNU make and/or
-compatible shells. At this point, this support is preliminary.
-
-Object file extensions of ".obj" and executable file extensions of
-".exe" are allowed when using appropriate version of GNU Make.
-
-Numerous enhancements were made to the __attribute__ facility including
-more attributes and more places that support it. We now support the
-"packed", "nocommon", "noreturn", "volatile", "const", "unused",
-"transparent_union", "constructor", "destructor", "mode", "section",
-"align", "format", "weak", and "alias" attributes. Each of these
-names may also be specified with added underscores, e.g., "__packed__".
-__attribute__ may now be applied to parameter definitions, function
-definitions, and structure, enum, and union definitions.
-
-GCC now supports returning more structures in registers, as specified by
-many calling sequences (ABIs), such as on the HP PA RISC.
-
-A new option '-fpack-struct' was added to automatically pack all structure
-members together without holes.
-
-There is a new library (cpplib) and program (cppmain) that at some
-point will replace cpp (aka cccp). To use cppmain as cpp now, pass
-the option CCCP=cppmain to make. The library is already used by the
-fix-header program, which should speed up the fixproto script.
-
-New options for supported targets:
-
- GNU on many targets.
- NetBSD on MIPS, m68k, VAX, and x86.
- LynxOS on x86, m68k, Sparc, and RS/6000.
- VxWorks on many targets.
-
- Windows/NT on x86 architecture. Initial support for Windows/NT on Alpha
- (not fully working).
-
- Many embedded targets, specifically UDI on a29k, aout, coff, elf,
- and vsta "operating systems" on m68k, m88k, mips, sparc, and x86.
-
-Additional support for x86 (i386, i486, and Pentium):
-
- Work with old and new linkers for Linux-based GNU systems,
- supporting both a.out and ELF.
- FreeBSD on x86.
- Stdcall convention.
- -malign-double, -mregparm=, -malign-loops= and -malign-jumps= switches.
- On ISC systems, support -Xp like -posix.
-
-Additions for RS/6000:
-
- Instruction scheduling information for PowerPC 403.
- AIX 4.1 on PowerPC.
- -mstring and -mno-string.
- -msoft-float and floating-point emulation included.
- Preliminary support for PowerPC System V.4 with or without the GNU as.
- Preliminary support for EABI.
- Preliminary support for 64-bit systems.
- Both big and little endian systems.
-
-New features for MIPS-based systems:
-
- r4650.
- mips4 and R8000.
- Irix 6.0.
- 64-bit ABI.
- Allow dollar signs in labels on SGI/Irix 5.x.
-
-New support for HP PA RISC:
-
- Generation of PIC (requires binutils-2.5.2.u6 or later).
- HP-UX version 9 on HP PA RISC (dynamically links even with -g).
- Processor variants for HP PA RISC: 700, 7100, and 7100LC.
- Automatic generation of long calls when needed.
- -mfast-indirect-calls for kernels and static binaries.
-
- The called routine now copies arguments passed by invisible reference,
- as required by the calling standard.
-
-Other new miscellaneous target-specific support:
-
- -mno-multm on a29k.
- -mold-align for i960.
- Configuration for "semi-hosted" ARM.
- -momit-leaf-frame-pointer for M88k.
- SH3 variant of Hitachi Super-H and support both big and little endian.
-
-Changes to Objective-C:
-
- Bare-bones implementation of NXConstantString has been added,
- which is invoked by the @"string" directive.
-
- Class * has been changed to Class to conform to the NextSTEP and
- OpenStep runtime.
-
- Enhancements to make dynamic loading easier.
-
- The module version number has been updated to Version 7, thus existing
- code will need to be recompiled to use the current run-time library.
-
-GCC now supports the ISO Normative Addendum 1 to the C Standard.
-As a result:
-
- The header <iso646.h> defines macros for C programs written
- in national variants of ISO 646.
-
- The following digraph tokens are supported:
- <: :> <% %> %: %:%:
- These behave like the following, respectively:
- [ ] { } # ##
-
- Digraph tokens are supported unless you specify the `-traditional'
- option; you do not need to specify `-ansi' or `-trigraphs'. Except
- for contrived and unlikely examples involving preprocessor
- stringizing, digraph interpretation doesn't change the meaning of
- programs; this is unlike trigraph interpretation, which changes the
- meanings of relatively common strings.
-
- The macro __STDC_VERSION__ has the value 199409L.
-
- As usual, for full conformance to the standard, you also need a
- C library that conforms.
-
-The following lists changes that have been made to g++. If some
-features mentioned below sound unfamiliar, you will probably want to
-look at the recently-released public review copy of the C++ Working
-Paper. For PostScript and PDF (Adobe Acrobat) versions, see the
-archive at ftp://research.att.com/dist/stdc++/WP. For HTML and ASCII
-versions, see ftp://ftp.cygnus.com/pub/g++. On the web, see
-http://www.cygnus.com/~mrs/wp-draft.
-
-The scope of variables declared in the for-init-statement has been changed
-to conform to http://www.cygnus.com/~mrs/wp-draft/stmt.html#stmt.for; as a
-result, packages such as groff 1.09 will not compile unless you specify the
--fno-for-scope flag. PLEASE DO NOT REPORT THIS AS A BUG; this is a change
-mandated by the C++ standardization committee.
-
-Binary incompatibilities:
-
- The builtin 'bool' type is now the size of a machine word on RISC targets,
- for code efficiency; it remains one byte long on CISC targets.
-
- Code that does not use #pragma interface/implementation will most
- likely shrink dramatically, as g++ now only emits the vtable for a
- class in the translation unit where its first non-inline, non-abstract
- virtual function is defined.
-
- Classes that do not define the copy constructor will sometimes be
- passed and returned in registers. This may illuminate latent bugs in
- your code.
-
-Support for automatic template instantiation has *NOT* been added, due
-to a disagreement over design philosophies.
-
-Support for exception handling has been improved; more targets are now
-supported, and throws will use the RTTI mechanism to match against the
-catch parameter type. Optimization is NOT SUPPORTED with
--fhandle-exceptions; no need to report this as a bug.
-
-Support for Run-Time Type Identification has been added with -frtti.
-This support is still in alpha; one major restriction is that any file
-compiled with -frtti must include <typeinfo.h>.
-
-Preliminary support for namespaces has been added. This support is far
-from complete, and probably not useful.
-
-Synthesis of compiler-generated constructors, destructors and
-assignment operators is now deferred until the functions are used.
-
-The parsing of expressions such as `a ? b : c = 1' has changed from
-`(a ? b : c) = 1' to `a : b ? (c = 1)'.
-
-The code generated for testing conditions, especially those using ||
-and &&, is now more efficient.
-
-The operator keywords and, and_eq, bitand, bitor, compl, not, not_eq,
-or, or_eq, xor and xor_eq are now supported. Use -ansi or
--foperator-names to enable them.
-
-The 'explicit' keyword is now supported. 'explicit' is used to mark
-constructors and type conversion operators that should not be used
-implicitly.
-
-g++ now accepts the typename keyword, though it currently has no
-semantics; it can be a no-op in the current template implementation.
-You may want to start using it in your code, however, since the
-pending rewrite of the template implementation to compile STL properly
-(perhaps for 2.8.0, perhaps not) will require you to use it as
-indicated by the current draft.
-
-Handling of user-defined type conversion has been overhauled so that
-type conversion operators are now found and used properly in
-expressions and function calls.
-
--fno-strict-prototype now only applies to function declarations with
-"C" linkage.
-
-g++ now warns about 'if (x=0)' with -Wparentheses or -Wall.
-
-#pragma weak and #pragma pack are supported on System V R4 targets, as
-are various other target-specific #pragmas supported by gcc.
-
-new and delete of const types is now allowed (with no additional
-semantics).
-
-Explicit instantiation of template methods is now supported. Also,
-'inline template class foo<int>;' can be used to emit only the vtable
-for a template class.
-
-With -fcheck-new, g++ will check the return value of all calls to
-operator new, and not attempt to modify a returned null pointer.
-
-The template instantiation code now handles more conversions when
-passing to a parameter that does not depend on template arguments.
-This means that code like 'string s; cout << s;' now works.
-
-Invalid jumps in a switch statement past declarations that require
-initializations are now caught.
-
-Functions declared 'extern inline' now have the same linkage semantics
-as inline member functions. On supported targets, where previously
-these functions (and vtables, and template instantiations) would have
-been defined statically, they will now be defined as weak symbols so
-that only one out-of-line definition is used.
-
-collect2 now demangles linker output, and c++filt has become part of
-the gcc distribution.
-
-Noteworthy changes in GCC version 2.6.3:
-
-A few more bugs have been fixed.
-
-Noteworthy changes in GCC version 2.6.2:
-
-A few bugs have been fixed.
-
-Names of attributes can now be preceded and followed by double underscores.
-
-Noteworthy changes in GCC version 2.6.1:
-
-Numerous (mostly minor) bugs have been fixed.
-
-The following new configurations are supported:
-
- GNU on x86 (instead of treating it like MACH)
- NetBSD on Sparc and Motorola 68k
- AIX 4.1 on RS/6000 and PowerPC systems
- Sequent DYNIX/ptx 1.x and 2.x.
- Both COFF and ELF configurations on AViiON without using /bin/gcc
- Windows/NT on x86 architecture; preliminary
- AT&T DSP1610 digital signal processor chips
- i960 systems on bare boards using COFF
- PDP11; target only and not extensively tested
-
-The -pg option is now supported for Alpha under OSF/1 V3.0 or later.
-
-Files with an extension of ".c++" are treated as C++ code.
-
-The -Xlinker and -Wl arguments are now passed to the linker in the
-position they were specified on the command line. This makes it
-possible, for example, to pass flags to the linker about specific
-object files.
-
-The use of positional arguments to the configure script is no longer
-recommended. Use --target= to specify the target; see the GCC manual.
-
-The 386 now supports two new switches: -mreg-alloc=<string> changes
-the default register allocation order used by the compiler, and
--mno-wide-multiply disables the use of the mul/imul instructions that
-produce 64 bit results in EAX:EDX from 32 bit operands to do long long
-multiplies and 32-bit division by constants.
-
-Noteworthy changes in GCC version 2.6.0:
-
-Numerous bugs have been fixed, in the C and C++ front-ends, as
-well as in the common compiler code.
-
-This release includes the C, Objective-C, and C++ compilers. However,
-we have moved the files for the C++ compiler (G++) files to a
-subdirectory, cp. Subsequent releases of GCC will split these files
-to a separate TAR file.
-
-The G++ team has been tracking the development of the ANSI standard for C++.
-Here are some new features added from the latest working paper:
-
- * built-in boolean type 'bool', with constants 'true' and 'false'.
- * array new and delete (operator new [] and delete []).
- * WP-conforming lifetime of temporaries.
- * explicit instantiation of templates (template class A<int>;),
- along with an option (-fno-implicit-templates) to disable emission
- of implicitly instantiated templates, obsoletes -fexternal-templates.
- * static member constants (static const int foo = 4; within the
- class declaration).
-
-Many error messages have been improved to tell the user more about the
-problem. Conformance checking with -pedantic-errors has been
-improved. G++ now compiles Fresco.
-
-There is now an experimental implementation of virtual functions using
-thunks instead of Cfront-style vtables, enabled with -fvtable-thunks.
-This option also enables a heuristic which causes the compiler to only
-emit the vtable in the translation unit where its first non-inline
-virtual function is defined; using this option and
--fno-implicit-templates, users should be able to avoid #pragma
-interface/implementation altogether.
-
-Signatures have been added as a GNU C++ extension. Using the option
--fhandle-signatures, users are able to turn on recognition of
-signatures. A short introduction on signatures is in the section
-`Extension to the C++ Language' in the manual.
-
-The `g++' program is now a C program, rather than a shell script.
-
-Lots and lots and lots of bugs fixes, in nested types, access control,
-pointers to member functions, the parser, templates, overload
-resolution, etc, etc.
-
-There have been two major enhancements to the Objective-C compiler:
-
-1) Added portability. It now runs on Alpha, and some problems with
- message forwarding have been addressed on other platforms.
-
-2) Selectors have been redefined to be pointers to structs like:
- { void *sel_id, char *sel_types }, where the sel_id is the unique
- identifier, the selector itself is no longer unique.
-
- Programmers should use the new function sel_eq to test selector
- equivalence.
-
-The following major changes have been made to the base compiler and
-machine-specific files.
-
-- The MIL-STD-1750A is a new port, but still preliminary.
-
-- The h8/300h is now supported; both the h8/300 and h8/300h ports come
- with 32 bit IEEE 754 software floating point support.
-
-- The 64-bit Sparc (v9) and 64-bit MIPS chips are supported.
-
-- NetBSD is supported on m68k, Intel x86, and pc523 systems and FreeBSD
- on x86.
-
-- COFF is supported on x86, m68k, and Sparc systems running LynxOS.
-
-- 68K systems from Bull and Concurrent are supported and System V
- Release 4 is supported on the Atari.
-
-- GCC supports GAS on the Motorola 3300 (sysV68) and debugging
- (assuming GAS) on the Plexus 68K system. (However, GAS does not yet
- work on those systems).
-
-- System V Release 4 is supported on MIPS (Tandem).
-
-- For DG/UX, an ELF configuration is now supported, and both the ELF
- and BCS configurations support ELF and COFF object file formats.
-
-- OSF/1 V2.0 is supported on Alpha.
-
-- Function profiling is also supported on Alpha.
-
-- GAS and GDB is supported for Irix 5 (MIPS).
-
-- "common mode" (code that will run on both POWER and PowerPC
- architectures) is now supported for the RS/6000 family; the
- compiler knows about more PPC chips.
-
-- Both NeXTStep 2.1 and 3 are supported on 68k-based architectures.
-
-- On the AMD 29k, the -msoft-float is now supported, as well as
- -mno-sum-in-toc for RS/6000, -mapp-regs and -mflat for Sparc, and
- -membedded-pic for MIPS.
-
-- GCC can now convert division by integer constants into the equivalent
- multiplication and shift operations when that is faster than the
- division.
-
-- Two new warning options, -Wbad-function-cast and
- -Wmissing-declarations have been added.
-
-- Configurations may now add machine-specific __attribute__ options on
- type; many machines support the `section' attribute.
-
-- The -ffast-math flag permits some optimization that violate strict
- IEEE rules, such as converting X * 0.0 to 0.0.
-
-Noteworthy changes in GCC version 2.5.8:
-
-This release only fixes a few serious bugs. These include fixes for a
-bug that prevented most programs from working on the RS/6000, a bug
-that caused invalid assembler code for programs with a `switch'
-statement on the NS32K, a G++ problem that caused undefined names in
-some configurations, and several less serious problems, some of which
-can affect most configuration.
-
-Noteworthy change in GCC version 2.5.7:
-
-This release only fixes a few bugs, one of which was causing bootstrap
-compare errors on some systems.
-
-Noteworthy change in GCC version 2.5.6:
-
-A few backend bugs have been fixed, some of which only occur on one
-machine.
-
-The C++ compiler in 2.5.6 includes:
-
- * fixes for some common crashes
- * correct handling of nested types that are referenced as `foo::bar'
- * spurious warnings about friends being declared static and never
- defined should no longer appear
- * enums that are local to a method in a class, or a class that's
- local to a function, are now handled correctly. For example:
- class foo { void bar () { enum { x, y } E; x; } };
- void bar () { class foo { enum { x, y } E; E baz; }; }
-
-Noteworthy change in GCC version 2.5.5:
-
-A large number of C++ bugs have been fixed.
-
-The fixproto script adds prototypes conditionally on __cplusplus.
-
-Noteworthy change in GCC version 2.5.4:
-
-A bug fix in passing of structure arguments for the HP-PA architecture
-makes code compiled with GCC 2.5.4 incompatible with code compiled
-with earlier versions (if it passes struct arguments of 33 to 64 bits,
-interspersed with other types of arguments).
-
-Noteworthy change in gcc version 2.5.3:
-
-The method of "mangling" C++ function names has been changed. So you
-must recompile all C++ programs completely when you start using GCC
-2.5. Also, GCC 2.5 requires libg++ version 2.5. Earlier libg++
-versions won't work with GCC 2.5. (This is generally true--GCC
-version M.N requires libg++ version M.N.)
-
-Noteworthy GCC changes in version 2.5:
-
-* There is now support for the IBM 370 architecture as a target.
-Currently the only operating system supported is MVS; GCC does not run
-on MVS, so you must produce .s files using GCC as a cross compiler,
-then transfer them to MVS to assemble them. This port is not reliable
-yet.
-
-* The Power PC is now supported.
-
-* The i860-based Paragon machine is now supported.
-
-* The Hitachi 3050 (an HP-PA machine) is now supported.
-
-* The variable __GNUC_MINOR__ holds the minor version number of GCC, as
-an integer. For version 2.5.X, the value is 5.
-
-* In C, initializers for static and global variables are now processed
-an element at a time, so that they don't need a lot of storage.
-
-* The C syntax for specifying which structure field comes next in an
-initializer is now `.FIELDNAME='. The corresponding syntax for
-array initializers is now `[INDEX]='. For example,
-
- char whitespace[256]
- = { [' '] = 1, ['\t'] = 1, ['\n'] = 1 };
-
-This was changed to accord with the syntax proposed by the Numerical
-C Extensions Group (NCEG).
-
-* Complex numbers are now supported in C. Use the keyword __complex__
-to declare complex data types. See the manual for details.
-
-* GCC now supports `long double' meaningfully on the Sparc (128-bit
-floating point) and on the 386 (96-bit floating point). The Sparc
-support is enabled on Solaris 2.x because earlier system versions
-(SunOS 4) have bugs in the emulation.
-
-* All targets now have assertions for cpu, machine and system. So you
-can now use assertions to distinguish among all supported targets.
-
-* Nested functions in C may now be inline. Just declare them inline
-in the usual way.
-
-* Packed structure members are now supported fully; it should be possible
-to access them on any supported target, no matter how little alignment
-they have.
-
-* To declare that a function does not return, you must now write
-something like this (works only in 2.5):
-
- void fatal () __attribute__ ((noreturn));
-
-or like this (works in older versions too):
-
- typedef void voidfn ();
-
- volatile voidfn fatal;
-
-It used to be possible to do so by writing this:
-
- volatile void fatal ();
-
-but it turns out that ANSI C requires that to mean something
-else (which is useless).
-
-Likewise, to declare that a function is side-effect-free
-so that calls may be deleted or combined, write
-something like this (works only in 2.5):
-
- int computation () __attribute__ ((const));
-
-or like this (works in older versions too):
-
- typedef int intfn ();
-
- const intfn computation;
-
-* The new option -iwithprefixbefore specifies a directory to add to
-the search path for include files in the same position where -I would
-put it, but uses the specified prefix just like -iwithprefix.
-
-* Basic block profiling has been enhanced to record the function the
-basic block comes from, and if the module was compiled for debugging,
-the line number and filename. A default version of the basic block
-support module has been added to libgcc2 that appends the basic block
-information to a text file 'bb.out'. Machine descriptions can now
-override the basic block support module in the target macro file.
-
-New features in g++:
-
-* The new flag `-fansi-overloading' for C++. Use a newly implemented
-scheme of argument matching for C++. It makes g++ more accurately
-obey the rules set down in Chapter 13 of the Annotated C++ Reference
-Manual (the ARM). This option will be turned on by default in a
-future release.
-
-* The -finline-debug flag is now gone (it was never really used by the
- compiler).
-
-* Recognizing the syntax for pointers to members, e.g., "foo::*bar", has been
- dramatically improved. You should not get any syntax errors or incorrect
- runtime results while using pointers to members correctly; if you do, it's
- a definite bug.
-
-* Forward declaration of an enum is now flagged as an error.
-
-* Class-local typedefs are now working properly.
-
-* Nested class support has been significantly improved. The compiler
- will now (in theory) support up to 240 nested classes before hitting
- other system limits (like memory size).
-
-* There is a new C version of the `g++' driver, to replace the old
- shell script. This should significantly improve the performance of
- executing g++ on a system where a user's PATH environment variable
- references many NFS-mounted filesystems. This driver also works
- under MS-DOS and OS/2.
-
-* The ANSI committee working on the C++ standard has adopted a new
- keyword `mutable'. This will allow you to make a specific member be
- modifiable in an otherwise const class.
-
-Noteworthy GCC changes in version 2.4.4:
-
- A crash building g++ on various hosts (including m68k) has been
- fixed. Also the g++ compiler no longer reports incorrect
- ambiguities in some situations where they do not exist, and
- const template member functions are now being found properly.
-
-Noteworthy GCC changes in version 2.4:
-
-* On each target, the default is now to return short structures
-compatibly with the "usual" compiler on that target.
-
-For most targets, this means the default is to return all structures
-in memory, like long structures, in whatever way is used on that
-target. Use -freg-struct-return to enable returning short structures
-(and unions) in registers.
-
-This change means that newly compiled binaries are incompatible with
-binaries compiled with previous versions of GCC.
-
-On some targets, GCC is itself the usual compiler. On these targets,
-the default way to return short structures is still in registers.
-Use -fpcc-struct-return to tell GCC to return them in memory.
-
-* There is now a floating point emulator which can imitate the way all
-supported target machines do floating point arithmetic.
-
-This makes it possible to have cross compilation to and from the VAX,
-and between machines of different endianness. However, this works
-only when the target machine description is updated to use the new
-facilities, and not all have been updated.
-
-This also makes possible support for longer floating point types.
-GCC 2.4 supports extended format on the 68K if you use `long double',
-for targets that have a 68881. (When we have run time library
-routines for extended floating point, then `long double' will use
-extended format on all 68K targets.)
-
-We expect to support extended floating point on the i386 and Sparc in
-future versions.
-
-* Building GCC now automatically fixes the system's header files.
-This should require no attention.
-
-* GCC now installs an unsigned data type as size_t when it fixes the
-header files (on all but a handful of old target machines).
-Therefore, the bug that size_t failed to be unsigned is fixed.
-
-* Building and installation are now completely separate.
-All new files are constructed during the build process;
-installation just copies them.
-
-* New targets supported: Clipper, Hitachi SH, Hitachi 8300, and Sparc
-Lite.
-
-* A totally new and much better Objective C run time system is included.
-
-* Objective C supports many new features. Alas, I can't describe them
-since I don't use that language; however, they are the same ones
-supported in recent versions of the NeXT operating system.
-
-* The builtin functions __builtin_apply_args, __builtin_apply and
-__builtin_return let you record the arguments and returned
-value of a function without knowing their number or type.
-
-* The builtin string variables __FUNCTION__ and __PRETTY_FUNCTION__
-give the name of the function in the source, and a pretty-printed
-version of the name. The two are the same in C, but differ in C++.
-
-* Casts to union types do not yield lvalues.
-
-* ## before an empty rest argument discards the preceding sequence
-of non-whitespace characters from the macro definition.
-(This feature is subject to change.)
-
-
-New features specific to C++:
-
-* The manual contains a new section ``Common Misunderstandings with
-GNU C++'' that C++ users should read.
-
-* #pragma interface and #pragma implementation let you use the same
-C++ source file for both interface and implementation.
-However, this mechanism is still in transition.
-
-* Named returned values let you avoid an extra constructor call
-when a function result has a class type.
-
-* The C++ operators <? and >? yield min and max, respectively.
-
-* C++ gotos can exit a block safely even if the block has
-aggregates that require destructors.
-
-* gcc defines the macro __GNUG__ when compiling C++ programs.
-
-* GNU C++ now correctly distinguishes between the prefix and postfix
-forms of overloaded operator ++ and --. To avoid breaking old
-code, if a class defines only the prefix form, the compiler
-accepts either ++obj or obj++, unless -pedantic is used.
-
-* If you are using version 2.3 of libg++, you need to rebuild it with
-`make CC=gcc' to avoid mismatches in the definition of `size_t'.
-
-Newly documented compiler options:
-
--fnostartfiles
- Omit the standard system startup files when linking.
-
--fvolatile-global
- Consider memory references to extern and global data items to
- be volatile.
-
--idirafter DIR
- Add DIR to the second include path.
-
--iprefix PREFIX
- Specify PREFIX for later -iwithprefix options.
-
--iwithprefix DIR
- Add PREFIX/DIR to the second include path.
-
--mv8
- Emit Sparc v8 code (with integer multiply and divide).
--msparclite
- Emit Sparclite code (roughly v7.5).
-
--print-libgcc-file-name
- Search for the libgcc.a file, print its absolute file name, and exit.
-
--Woverloaded-virtual
- Warn when a derived class function declaration may be an error
- in defining a C++ virtual function.
-
--Wtemplate-debugging
- When using templates in a C++ program, warn if debugging is
- not yet fully available.
-
-+eN
- Control how C++ virtual function definitions are used
- (like cfront 1.x).

+
+ GCC 2.95.3
+
+ January 11, 2001
+
+ The GNU project and the GCC developers are pleased to announce the
+ prerelease of GCC version 2.95.3. GCC used to stand for the GNU C
+ Compiler, but since the compiler supports several other languages
+ aside from C, it now stands for the GNU Compiler Collection.
+
+ This is a minor release to address several bugs in the [1]GCC version
+ 2.95.2 release.
+
+ * Generic bugfixes and improvements
+ + Fix numerous problems that caused incorrect optimization in
+ the register reloading code.
+ + Fix numerous problems that caused incorrect optimization in
+ the loop optimizer.
+ + Fix setjmp/longjmp based exception handling.
+ + Fix aborts in the functions build_insn_chain and scan_loops
+ under some circumstances.
+ + Fix an alias analysis bug.
+ + Fix an infinite compilation bug in the combiner.
+ + A few problems with complex number support have been fixed.
+ + It is no longer possible for gcc to act as a fork bomb when
+ installed incorrectly.
+ + The -fpack-struct option should be recognized now.
+ + Fixed a bug that caused incorrect code to be generated due to
+ a lost stack adjustment.
+ * Platform specific bugfixes and improvements
+ + Support building ARM toolchains hosted on Windows.
+ + Fix attribute calculations in ARM toolchains.
+ + arm-linux support has been improved.
+ + Fix a PIC failure on sparc targets.
+ + On ix86 targets, the regparm attribute should now work
+ reliably.
+ + Several updates for the h8300 port.
+
+ The whole suite has been extensively [2]regression tested and
+ [3]package tested. It should be reliable and suitable for widespread
+ use.
+
+ The GCC 2.95 release has several new optimizations, new targets, new
+ languages and other new features as compared to EGCS 1.1 or GCC 2.8.
+ See the [4]new features page for a more complete list of new features
+ found in the GCC 2.95 releases.
+
+ The sources include installation instructions in both HTML and
+ plaintext forms in the install directory in the distribution. However,
+ the most up to date [5]installation instructions and [6]build/test
+ status are on the web pages. We will update those pages as new
+ information becomes available.
+
+ The GCC developers would like to thank the numerous people that have
+ contributed new features, test results, bugfixes, etc to GCC. This
+ [7]amazing group of volunteers is what makes GCC successful.
+
+ And finally, we can't in good conscience fail to mention some
+ [8]caveats to using GCC 2.95.3.
+
+ Download GCC 2.95.3 from the [9]GNU FTP server (ftp://ftp.gnu.org)

+
+ GCC 2.95.2
+
+ October 27, 1999
+
+ The GNU project and the GCC developers are pleased to announce the
+ release of GCC version 2.95.2. GCC used to stand for the GNU C
+ Compiler, but since the compiler supports several other languages
+ aside from C, it now stands for the GNU Compiler Collection.
+
+ This is a minor release to address several bugs in the GCC version
+ 2.95.1 release.
+
+ The -fstrict-aliasing is not enabled by default for GCC 2.95.2. While
+ the optimizations performed by -fstrict-aliasing are valid according
+ to the C and C++ standards, the optimization have caused some
+ problems, particularly with old non-conforming code.
+
+ The GCC developers are experimenting with ways to warn users about
+ code which violates the C/C++ standards, but those warnings are not
+ ready for widespread use at this time. Rather than wait for those
+ warnings the GCC developers have chosen to disable -fstrict-aliasing
+ by default for the GCC 2.95.2 release.
+
+ We strongly encourage developers to find and fix code which violates
+ the C/C++ standards as -fstrict-aliasing may be enabled by default in
+ future releases. Use the option -fstrict-aliasing to re-enable these
+ optimizations.
+
+ * Generic bugfixes and improvements
+ + Fix incorrectly optimized memory reference in global common
+ subexpression elimination (GCSE) optimization pass.
+ + Fix code generation bug in regmove.c in which it could
+ incorrectly change a "const" value.
+ + Fix bug in optimization of conditionals involving volatile
+ memory references.
+ + Avoid over-allocation of stack space for some procedures.
+ + Fixed bug in the compiler which caused incorrect optimization
+ of an obscure series of bit manipulations, shifts and
+ arithmetic.
+ + Fixed register allocator bug which caused teTeX to be
+ mis-compiled on Sparc targets.
+ + Avoid incorrect optimization of degenerate case statements
+ for certain targets such as the ARM.
+ + Fix out of range memory reference in the jump optimizer.
+ + Avoid dereferencing null pointer in fix-header.
+ + Fix test for GCC specific features so that it is possible to
+ bootstrap with gcc-2.6.2 and older versions of GCC.
+ + Fix typo in scheduler which could potentially cause out of
+ range memory accesses.
+ + Avoid incorrect loop reversal which caused incorrect code for
+ certain loops on PowerPC targets.
+ + Avoid incorrect optimization of switch statements on certain
+ targets (for example the ARM).
+ * Platform specific bugfixes and improvements
+ + Work around bug in Sun V5.0 compilers which caused bootstrap
+ comparison failures on Sparc targets.
+ + Fix Sparc backend bug which caused aborts in final.c.
+ + Fix sparc-hal-solaris2* configuration fragments.
+ + Fix bug in sparc block profiling.
+ + Fix obscure code generation bug for the PARISC targets.
+ + Define __STDC_EXT__ for HPUX configurations.
+ + Various POWERPC64 code generation bugfixes.
+ + Fix abort for PPC targets using ELF (ex GNU/Linux).
+ + Fix collect2 problems for AIX targets.
+ + Correct handling of .file directive for PPC targets.
+ + Fix bug in fix_trunc x86 patterns.
+ + Fix x86 port to correctly pop the FP stack for functions that
+ return structures in memory.
+ + Fix minor bug in strlen x86 pattern.
+ + Use stabs debugging instead of dwarf1 for x86-solaris
+ targets.
+ + Fix template repository code to handle leading underscore in
+ mangled names.
+ + Fix weak/weak alias support for OpenBSD.
+ + GNU/Linux for the ARM has C++ compatible include files.
+ * Language & Runtime specific fixes.
+ + Fix handling of constructor attribute in the C front-end
+ which caused problems building the Chill runtime library on
+ some targets.
+ + Fix minor problem merging type qualifiers in the C front-end.
+ + Fix aliasing bug for pointers and references (C/C++).
+ + Fix incorrect "non-constant initializer bug" when
+ -traditional or -fwritable-strings is enabled.
+ + Fix build error for Chill front-end on SunOS.
+ + Do not complain about duplicate instantiations when using
+ -frepo (C++)
+ + Fix array bounds handling in C++ front-end which caused
+ problems with dwarf debugging information in some
+ circumstances.
+ + Fix minor namespace problem.
+ + Fix problem linking java programs.
+
+ The whole suite has been extensively [1]regression tested and
+ [2]package tested. It should be reliable and suitable for widespread
+ use.
+
+ The GCC 2.95 release has several new optimizations, new targets, new
+ languages and other new features as compared to EGCS 1.1 or GCC 2.8.
+ See the [3]new features page for a more complete list of new features
+ found in the GCC 2.95 releases.
+
+ The sources include installation instructions in both HTML and
+ plaintext forms in the install directory in the distribution. However,
+ the most up to date [4]installation instructions and [5]build/test
+ status are on the web pages. We will update those pages as new
+ information becomes available.
+
+ The GCC developers would like to thank the numerous people that have
+ contributed new features, test results, bugfixes, etc to GCC. This
+ [6]amazing group of volunteers is what makes GCC successful.
+
+ And finally, we can't in good conscience fail to mention some
+ [7]caveats to using GCC 2.95.2.
+
+ Download GCC 2.95.2 from the [8]GNU FTP server (ftp://ftp.gnu.org)

+http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-2.95/caveats.html
+
+ GCC 2.95 Caveats
+
+ * GCC 2.95 will issue an error for invalid asm statements that had
+ been silently accepted by earlier versions of the compiler. This
+ is particularly noticeable when compiling older versions of the
+ Linux kernel (2.0.xx). Please refer to the [1]FAQ for more
+ information on this issue.
+ * GCC 2.95 implements type based alias analysis to disambiguate
+ memory references. Some programs, particularly the Linux kernel
+ violate ANSI/ISO aliasing rules and therefore may not operate
+ correctly when compiled with GCC 2.95. Please refer to the [2]FAQ
+ for more information on this issue.
+ * GCC 2.95 has a known bug in its handling of complex variables for
+ 64bit targets. Instead of silently generating incorrect code, GCC
+ 2.95 will issue a fatal error for situations it can not handle.
+ This primarily affects the Fortran community as Fortran makes more
+ use of complex variables than C or C++.
+ * GCC 2.95 has an integrated libstdc++, but does not have an
+ integrated libg++. Furthermore old libg++ releases will not work
+ with GCC 2.95. You can retrieve a recent copy of libg++ from the
+ [3]GCC ftp server.
+ Note most C++ programs only need libstdc++.
+ * Exception handling may not work with shared libraries,
+ particularly on alphas, hppas, rs6000/powerpc and mips based
+ platforms. Exception handling is known to work on x86 GNU/Linux
+ platforms with shared libraries.
+ * In general, GCC 2.95 is more rigorous about rejecting invalid C++
+ code or deprecated C++ constructs than G++ 2.7, G++ 2.8, EGCS 1.0,
+ or EGCS 1.1. As a result it may be necessary to fix C++ code
+ before it will compile with GCC 2.95.
+ * G++ is also converting toward the ISO C++ standard; as a result
+ code which was previously valid (and thus accepted by other
+ compilers and older versions of g++) may no longer be accepted.
+ The flag -fpermissive may allow some non-conforming code to
+ compile with GCC 2.95.
+ * GCC 2.95 compiled C++ code is not binary compatible with EGCS
+ 1.1.x, EGCS 1.0.x or GCC 2.8.x.
+ * GCC 2.95 does not have changes from the GCC 2.8 tree that were
+ made between Sept 30, 1998 and April 30, 1999 (the official end of
+ the GCC 2.8 project). Future GCC releases will include all the
+ changes from the defunct GCC 2.8 sources.

+
+ EGCS 1.1
+
+ September 3, 1998
+
+ We are pleased to announce the release of EGCS 1.1.
+
+ EGCS is a free software project to further the development of the GNU
+ compilers using an open development environment.
+
+ EGCS 1.1 is a major new release of the EGCS compiler system. It has
+ been [1]extensively tested and is believed to be stable and suitable
+ for widespread use.
+
+ EGCS 1.1 is based on an June 6, 1998 snapshot of the GCC 2.8
+ development sources; it contains all of the new features found in GCC
+ 2.8.1 as well as all new development from GCC up to June 6, 1998.
+
+ EGCS also contains many improvements and features not found in GCC or
+ in older versions of EGCS.
+ * Global common subexpression elimination and global constant/copy
+ propagation (aka [2]gcse)
+ * Ongoing improvements to the [3]alias analysis support to allow for
+ better optimizations throughout the compiler.
+ * Vastly improved [4]C++ compiler and integrated C++ runtime
+ libraries.
+ * Fixes for the /tmp symlink race security problems.
+ * New targets including mips16, arm-thumb and 64 bit PowerPC.
+ * Improvements to GNU Fortran (g77) compiler and runtime library
+ made since [5]g77 version 0.5.23.
+
+ See the [6]new features page for a more complete list of new features
+ found in EGCS 1.1 releases.

+
+ EGCS 1.1 new features
+
+ * Integrated GNU Fortran (g77) compiler and runtime library with
+ improvements, based on [1]g77 version 0.5.23.
+ * Vast improvements in the C++ compiler; so many they have [2]page
+ of their own!
+ * Compiler implements [3]global common subexpression elimination and
+ global copy/constant propagation.
+ * More major improvements in the [4]alias analysis code.
+ * More major improvements in the exception handling code to improve
+ performance, lower static overhead and provide the infrastructure
+ for future improvements.
+ * The infamous /tmp symlink race security problems have been fixed.
+ * The regmove optimization pass has been nearly completely rewritten
+ to improve performance of generated code.
+ * The compiler now recomputes register usage information before
+ local register allocation. By providing more accurate information
+ to the priority based allocator, we get better register
+ allocation.
+ * The register reloading phase of the compiler optimizes spill code
+ much better than in previous releases.
+ * Some bad interactions between the register allocator and
+ instruction scheduler have been fixed, resulting in much better
+ code for certain programs. Additionally, we have tuned the
+ scheduler in various ways to improve performance of generated code
+ for some architectures.
+ * The compiler's branch shortening algorithms have been
+ significantly improved to work better on targets which align jump
+ targets.
+ * The compiler now supports -Os to prefer optimizing for code space
+ over optimizing for code speed.
+ * The compiler will now totally eliminate library calls which
+ compute constant values. This primarily helps targets with no
+ integer div/mul support and targets without floating point
+ support.
+ * The compiler now supports an extensive "--help" option.
+ * cpplib has been greatly improved and may be suitable for limited
+ use.
+ * Memory footprint for the compiler has been significantly reduced
+ for some pathological cases.
+ * The time to build EGCS has been improved for certain targets
+ (particularly the alpha and mips platforms).
+ * Many infrastructure improvements throughout the compiler, plus the
+ usual mountain of bugfixes and minor improvements.
+ * Target dependent improvements:
+ + SPARC port now includes V8 plus and V9 support as well as
+ performance tuning for Ultra class machines. The SPARC port
+ now uses the Haifa scheduler.
+ + Alpha port has been tuned for the EV6 processor and has an
+ optimized expansion of memcpy/bzero. The Alpha port now uses
+ the Haifa scheduler.
+ + RS6000/PowerPC: EGCS 1.1 includes support for the Power64
+ architecture and aix4.3 support. The RS6000/PowerPC port now
+ uses the Haifa scheduler.
+ + x86: Alignment of static store data and jump targets is per
+ Intel recommendations now. Various improvements throughout
+ the x86 port to improve performance on Pentium processors.
+ Conditional move support has been fixed and enabled for PPro
+ processors. The x86 port also better supports 64bit
+ operations now.
+ + MIPS has improved multiply/multiply-add support and now
+ includes mips16 ISA support.
+ + M68k has many micro-optimizations and Coldfire fixes.
+ * Core compiler is based on the GCC development tree from June 9,
+ 1998, so we have all of the [5]features found in GCC 2.8.

+
+ EGCS 1.1 Caveats
+
+ * EGCS has an integrated libstdc++, but does not have an integrated
+ libg++. Furthermore old libg++ releases will not work with EGCS;
+ HJ Lu has made a [1]libg++ snapshot available which may work with
+ EGCS.
+ Note most C++ programs only need libstdc++.
+ * Exception handling may not work with shared libraries,
+ particularly on alphas, hppas, rs6000/powerpc and mips based
+ platforms. Exception handling is known to work on x86-linux
+ platforms with shared libraries.
+ * Some versions of the Linux kernel have bugs which prevent them
+ from being compiled or from running when compiled by EGCS. See
+ [2]the FAQ for additional information.
+ * In general, EGCS is more rigorous about rejecting invalid C++ code
+ or deprecated C++ constructs than g++-2.7, g++-2.8 or EGCS 1.0. As
+ a result it may be necessary to fix C++ code before it will
+ compile with EGCS.
+ * G++ is also converting toward the ISO C++ standard; as a result
+ code which was previously valid (and thus accepted by other
+ compilers and older versions of g++) may no longer be accepted.
+ * EGCS 1.1 compiled C++ code is not binary compatible with EGCS
+ 1.0.x or GCC 2.8.x due to changes necessary to support thread safe
+ exception handling.

+
+ EGCS 1.0.1
+
+ January 6, 1998
+
+ We are pleased to announce the release of EGCS 1.0.1.
+
+ EGCS is a collaborative effort involving several groups of hackers
+ using an open development model to accelerate development and testing
+ of GNU compilers and runtime libraries.
+
+ EGCS 1.0.1 is a minor update to the EGCS 1.0 compiler to fix a few
+ critical bugs and add support for Red Hat 5.0 Linux. Changes since the
+ EGCS 1.0 release:
+ * Add support for Red Hat 5.0 Linux and better support for Linux
+ systems using glibc2.
+ Many programs failed to link when compiled with EGCS 1.0 on Red
+ Hat 5.0 or on systems with newer versions of glibc2. EGCS 1.0.1
+ should fix these problems.
+ * Compatability with both EGCS 1.0 and GCC 2.8 libgcc exception
+ handling interfaces.
+ To avoid future compatibility problems, we strongly urge anyone
+ who is planning on distributing shared libraries that contain C++
+ code to upgrade to EGCS 1.0.1 first.
+ Soon after EGCS 1.0 was released, the GCC developers made some
+ incompatible changes in libgcc's exception handling interfaces.
+ These changes were needed to solve problems on some platforms.
+ This means that GCC 2.8.0, when released, will not be seamlessly
+ compatible with shared libraries built by EGCS 1.0. The reason is
+ that the libgcc.a in GCC 2.8.0 will not contain a function needed
+ by the old interface.
+ The result of this is that there may be compatibility problems
+ with shared libraries built by EGCS 1.0 when used with GCC 2.8.0.
+ With EGCS 1.0.1, generated code uses the new (GCC 2.8.0)
+ interface, and libgcc.a has the support routines for both the old
+ and the new interfaces (so EGCS 1.0.1 and EGCS 1.0 code can be
+ freely mixed, and EGCS 1.0.1 and GCC 2.8.0 code can be freely
+ mixed).
+ The maintainers of GCC 2.x have decided against including seamless
+ support for the old interface in 2.8.0, since it was never
+ "official", so to avoid future compatibility problems we recommend
+ against distributing any shared libraries built by EGCS 1.0 that
+ contain C++ code (upgrade to 1.0.1 and use that).
+ * Various bugfixes in the x86, hppa, mips, and rs6000/ppc backends.
+ The x86 changes fix code generation errors exposed when building
+ glibc2 and the Linux dynamic linker (ld.so).
+ The hppa change fixes a compiler abort when configured for use
+ with RTEMS.
+ The MIPS changes fix problems with the definition of LONG_MAX on
+ newer systems, allow for command line selection of the target ABI,
+ and fix one code generation problem.
+ The rs6000/ppc change fixes some problems with passing structures
+ to varargs/stdarg functions.
+ * A few machine independent bugfixes, mostly to fix code generation
+ errors when building Linux kernels or glibc.
+ * Fix a few critical exception handling and template bugs in the C++
+ compiler.
+ * Fix Fortran namelist bug on alphas.
+ * Fix build problems on x86-solaris systems.
+
+ An important goal of EGCS is to allow wide scale testing of new
+ features and optimizations which are still under development. However,
+ EGCS has been carefully tested and should be comparable in quality to
+ most GCC releases.
+
+ EGCS 1.0.1 is based on an August 2, 1997 snapshot of the GCC 2.8
+ development sources; it contains nearly all of the new features found
+ in GCC 2.8.
+
+ EGCS also contains many improvements and features not found in GCC 2.7
+ and even the soon to be released GCC 2.8 compilers.
+ * Integrated C++ runtime libraries, including support for most major
+ linux systems!
+ * The integrated libstdc++ library includes a verbatim copy of
+ [1]SGI's STL release.
+ * Integrated GNU Fortran compiler
+ * New instruction scheduler
+ * New alias analysis code
+
+ See the [2]new features page for a more complete list of new features
+ found in EGCS 1.0.x releases.
+
+ The EGCS 1.0.1 release includes installation instructions in both HTML
+ and plaintext forms (see the INSTALL directory in the toplevel
+ directory of the EGCS 1.0.1 distribution). However, we also keep the
+ most up to date [3]installation instructions and [4]build/test status
+ on our web page. We will update those pages as new information becomes
+ available.
+
+ And, we can't in good conscience fail to mention some [5]caveats to
+ using EGCS.

+
+ EGCS 1.0
+
+ December 3, 1997
+
+ We are pleased to announce the release of EGCS 1.0.
+
+ EGCS is a collaborative effort involving several groups of hackers
+ using an open development model to accelerate development and testing
+ of GNU compilers and runtime libraries.
+
+ An important goal of EGCS is to allow wide scale testing of
+ experimental features and optimizations; therefore, EGCS contains some
+ features and optimizations which are still under development. However,
+ EGCS has been carefully tested and should be comparable in quality to
+ most GCC releases.
+
+ EGCS 1.0 is based on an August 2, 1997 snapshot of the GCC 2.8
+ development sources; it contains nearly all of the new features found
+ in GCC 2.8.
+
+ EGCS 1.0 also contains many improvements and features not found in GCC
+ 2.7 and even the soon to be released GCC 2.8 compilers.
+ * Integrated C++ runtime libraries, including support for most major
+ linux systems!
+ * The integrated libstdc++ library includes a verbatim copy of
+ [1]SGI's STL release.
+ * Integrated GNU Fortran compiler
+ * New instruction scheduler
+ * New alias analysis code
+
+ See the [2]new features page for a more complete list of new features.
+
+ The EGCS 1.0 release includes installation instructions in both HTML
+ and plaintext forms (see the INSTALL directory in the toplevel
+ directory of the EGCS 1.0 distribution). However, we also keep the
+ most up to date [3]installation instructions and [4]build/test status
+ on our web page. We will update those pages as new information becomes
+ available.
+
+ And, we can't in good conscience fail to mention some [5]caveats to
+ using EGCS.
+
+ Update: The T1 into our main California offices has been 100%
+ saturated since shortly after the release. We've added an EGCS 1.0
+ mirror at our Massachusetts office to help share the load. We also
+ encourage folks to use the many mirrors available throughout the
+ world.

+======================================================================
+http://gcc.gnu.org/egcs-1.0/caveats.html
+
+ EGCS 1.0 Caveats
+
+ * EGCS has an integrated libstdc++, but does not have an integrated
+ libg++. Furthermore old libg++ releases will not work with egc; HJ
+ Lu has made a [1]libg++ snapshot available which may work with
+ EGCS.
+ Note most C++ programs only need libstdc++.
+ * Note that using -pedantic or -Wreturn-type can cause an explosion
+ in the amount of memory needed for template-heavy C++ code, such
+ as code that uses STL. Also note that -Wall includes
+ -Wreturn-type, so if you use -Wall you will need to specify
+ -Wno-return-type to turn it off.
+ * Exception handling may not work with shared libraries,
+ particularly on alphas, hppas, and mips based platforms. Exception
+ handling is known to work on x86-linux platforms with shared
+ libraries.
+ * Some versions of the Linux kernel have bugs which prevent them
+ from being compiled or from running when compiled by EGCS. See
+ [2]the FAQ for additional information.
+ * In general, EGCS is more rigorous about rejecting invalid C++ code
+ or deprecated C++ constructs than G++ 2.7. As a result it may be
+ necessary to fix C++ code before it will compile with EGCS.
+ * G++ is also aggressively tracking the C++ standard; as a result
+ code which was previously valid (and thus accepted by other
+ compilers and older versions of G++) may no longer be accepted.
+ * EGCS 1.0 may not work with Red Hat Linux 5.0 on all targets. EGCS
+ 1.0.x and later releases should work with Red Hat Linux 5.0.

+Noteworthy changes in GCC after EGCS 1.1.
+-----------------------------------------
+
+Target specific NEWS
+
+ RS6000/PowerPC: -mcpu=401 was added as an alias for -mcpu=403. -mcpu=e603e
+ was added to do -mcpu=603e and -msoft-float.
+
+Noteworthy changes in GCC for EGCS 1.1.
+---------------------------------------
+
+The compiler now implements global common subexpression elimination (gcse) as
+well as global constant/copy propagation. (link to gcse page).
+
+More major improvements have been made to the alias analysis code. A new
+option to allow front-ends to provide alias information to the optimizers
+has also been added (-fstrict-aliasing). -fstrict-aliasing is off by default
+now, but will be enabled by default in the future. (link to alias page)
+
+Major changes continue in the exception handling support. This release
+includes some changes to reduce static overhead for exception handling. It
+also includes some major changes to the setjmp/longjmp based EH mechanism to
+make it less pessimistic. And finally, major infrastructure improvements
+to the dwarf2 EH mechanism have been made to make our EH support extensible.
+
+We have fixed the infamous security problems with temporary files.
+
+The "regmove" optimization pass has been nearly completely rewritten. It now
+uses much more information about the target to determine profitability of
+transformations.
+
+The compiler now recomputes register usage information immediately before
+register allocation. Previously such information was only not kept up to
+date after instruction combination which led to poor register allocation
+choices by our priority based register allocator.
+
+The register reloading phase of the compiler has been improved to better
+optimize spill code. This primarily helps targets which generate lots of
+spills (like the x86 ports and many register poor embedded ports).
+
+A few changes in the heuristics used by the register allocator and scheduler
+have been made which can significantly improve performance for certain
+applications.
+
+The compiler's branch shortening algorithms have been significantly improved
+to work better on targets which align jump targets.
+
+The compiler now supports the "ADDRESSOF" optimization which can significantly
+reduce the overhead for certain inline calls (and inline calls in general).
+
+The compiler now supports a code size optimization switch (-Os). When enabled
+the compiler will prefer optimizations which improve code size over those
+which improve code speed.
+
+The compiler has been improved to completely eliminate library calls which
+compute constant values. This is particularly useful on machines which
+do not have integer mul/div or floating point support on-chip.
+
+GCC now supports a "--help" option to print detailed help information.
+
+cpplib has been greatly improved. It is probably useable for some sites now
+(major missing feature is trigraphs).
+
+Memory footprint for the compiler has been significantly reduced for certain
+pathalogical cases.
+
+Build time improvements for targets which support lots of sched parameters
+(alpha and mips primarily).
+
+Compile time for certain programs using large constant initializers has been
+improved (effects glibc significantly).
+
+Plus an incredible number of infrastructure changes, warning fixes, bugfixes
+and local optimizations.
+
+Various improvements have been made to better support cross compilations. They
+are still not easy, but they are improving.
+
+Target specific NEWS
+
+ Sparc: Now includes V8 plus and V9 support, lots of tuning for Ultrasparcs
+ and uses the Haifa scheduler by default.
+
+ Alpha: EV6 tuned, optimized expansion of memcpy/bzero.
+
+ x86: Data in the static store is aligned per Intel recommendations. Jump
+ targets are aligned per Intel recommendations. Improved epilogue
+ sequences for Pentium chips. Backend improvements which should help
+ register allocation on all x86 variants. Support for PPro conditional
+ move instructions has been fixed and enabled. Random changes
+ throughout the port to make generated code more Pentium friendly.
+ Improved support for 64bit integer operations.
+ Unixware 7, a System V Release 5 target is now supported.
+ SCO OpenServer targets can support GAS. See gcc/INSTALL for details.
+
+ RS6000/PowerPC: Includes AIX4.3 support as well as PowerPC64 support.
+ Haifa instruction scheduling is enabled by default now.
+
+ MIPS: Multiply/Multiply-Add support has been largely rewritten to generate
+ more efficient code. Includes mips16 support.
+
+ M68K: Various micro-optimizations and Coldfire fixes.
+
+ M32r: Major improvements to this port.
+
+ Arm: Includes Thumb and super interworking support.
+
+EGCS includes all gcc2 changes up to and including the June 9, 1998 snapshot.
+
+
+Noteworthy changes in GCC version 2.8.1
+---------------------------------------
+
+Numerous bugs have been fixed and some minor performance
+improvements (compilation speed) have been made.
+
+Noteworthy changes in GCC version 2.8.0
+---------------------------------------
+
+A major change in this release is the addition of a framework for
+exception handling, currently used by C++. Many internal changes and
+optimization improvements have been made. These increase the
+maintainability and portability of GCC. GCC now uses autoconf to
+compute many host parameters.
+
+The following lists changes that add new features or targets.
+
+See cp/NEWS for new features of C++ in this release.
+
+New tools and features:
+
+ The Dwarf 2 debugging information format is supported on ELF systems, and
+ is the default for -ggdb where available. It can also be used for C++.
+ The Dwarf version 1 debugging format is also permitted for C++, but
+ does not work well.
+
+ gcov.c is provided for test coverage analysis and branch profiling
+ analysis is also supported; see -fprofile-arcs, -ftest-coverage,
+ and -fbranch-probabilities.
+
+ Support for the Checker memory checking tool.
+
+ New switch, -fstack-check, to check for stack overflow on systems that
+ don't have such built into their ABI.
+
+ New switches, -Wundef and -Wno-undef to warn if an undefined identifier
+ is evaluated in an #if directive.
+
+ Options -Wall and -Wimplicit now cause GCC to warn about implicit int
+ in declarations (e.g. `register i;'), since the C Standard committee
+ has decided to disallow this in the next revision of the standard;
+ -Wimplicit-function-declarations and -Wimplicit-int are subsets of
+ this.
+
+ Option -Wsign-compare causes GCC to warn about comparison of signed and
+ unsigned values.
+
+ Add -dI option of cccp for cxref.
+
+New features in configuration, installation and specs file handling:
+
+ New option --enable-c-cpplib to configure script.
+
+ You can use --with-cpu on the configure command to specify the default
+ CPU that GCC should generate code for.
+
+ The -specs=file switch allows you to override default specs used in
+ invoking programs like cc1, as, etc.
+
+ Allow including one specs file from another and renaming a specs
+ variable.
+
+ You can now relocate all GCC files with a single environment variable
+ or a registry entry under Windows 95 and Windows NT.
+
+Changes in Objective-C:
+
+ The Objective-C Runtime Library has been made thread-safe.
+
+ The Objective-C Runtime Library contains an interface for creating
+ mutexes, condition mutexes, and threads; it requires a back-end
+ implementation for the specific platform and/or thread package.
+ Currently supported are DEC/OSF1, IRIX, Mach, OS/2, POSIX, PCThreads,
+ Solaris, and Windows32. The --enable-threads parameter can be used
+ when configuring GCC to enable and select a thread back-end.
+
+ Objective-C is now configured as separate front-end language to GCC,
+ making it more convenient to conditionally build it.
+
+ The internal structures of the Objective-C Runtime Library have
+ changed sufficiently to warrant a new version number; now version 8.
+ Programs compiled with an older version must be recompiled.
+
+ The Objective-C Runtime Library can be built as a DLL on Windows 95
+ and Windows NT systems.
+
+ The Objective-C Runtime Library implements +load.
+
+The following new targets are supported (see also list under each
+individual CPU below):
+
+ Embedded target m32r-elf.
+ Embedded Hitachi Super-H using ELF.
+ RTEMS real-time system on various CPU targets.
+ ARC processor.
+ NEC V850 processor.
+ Matsushita MN10200 processor.
+ Matsushita MN10300 processor.
+ Sparc and PowerPC running on VxWorks.
+ Support both glibc versions 1 and 2 on Linux-based GNU systems.
+
+New features for DEC Alpha systems:
+
+ Allow detailed specification of IEEE fp support:
+ -mieee, -mieee-with-inexact, and -mieee-conformant
+ -mfp-trap-mode=xxx, -mfp-round-mode=xxx, -mtrap-precision=xxx
+ -mcpu=xxx for CPU selection
+ Support scheduling parameters for EV5.
+ Add support for BWX, CIX, and MAX instruction set extensions.
+ Support Linux-based GNU systems.
+ Support VMS.
+
+Additional supported processors and systems for MIPS targets:
+
+ MIPS4 instruction set.
+ R4100, R4300 and R5000 processors.
+ N32 and N64 ABI.
+ IRIX 6.2.
+ SNI SINIX.
+
+New features for Intel x86 family:
+
+ Add scheduling parameters for Pentium and Pentium Pro.
+ Support stabs on Solaris-x86.
+ Intel x86 processors running the SCO OpenServer 5 family.
+ Intel x86 processors running DG/UX.
+ Intel x86 using Cygwin32 or Mingw32 on Windows 95 and Windows NT.
+
+New features for Motorola 68k family:
+
+ Support for 68060 processor.
+ More consistent switches to specify processor.
+ Motorola 68k family running AUX.
+ 68040 running pSOS, ELF object files, DBX debugging.
+ Coldfire variant of Motorola m68k family.
+
+New features for the HP PA RISC:
+
+ -mspace and -mno-space
+ -mlong-load-store and -mno-long-load-store
+ -mbig-switch -mno-big-switch
+
+ GCC on the PA requires either gas-2.7 or the HP assembler; for best
+ results using GAS is highly recommended. GAS is required for -g and
+ exception handling support.
+
+New features for SPARC-based systems:
+
+ The ultrasparc cpu.
+ The sparclet cpu, supporting only a.out file format.
+ Sparc running SunOS 4 with the GNU assembler.
+ Sparc running the Linux-based GNU system.
+ Embedded Sparc processors running the ELF object file format.
+ -mcpu=xxx
+ -mtune=xxx
+ -malign-loops=xxx
+ -malign-jumps=xxx
+ -malign-functions=xxx
+ -mimpure-text and -mno-impure-text
+
+ Options -mno-v8 and -mno-sparclite are no longer supported on SPARC
+ targets. Options -mcypress, -mv8, -msupersparc, -msparclite, -mf930,
+ and -mf934 are deprecated and will be deleted in GCC 2.9. Use
+ -mcpu=xxx instead.
+
+New features for rs6000 and PowerPC systems:
+
+ Solaris 2.51 running on PowerPC's.
+ The Linux-based GNU system running on PowerPC's.
+ -mcpu=604e,602,603e,620,801,823,mpc505,821,860,power2
+ -mtune=xxx
+ -mrelocatable-lib, -mno-relocatable-lib
+ -msim, -mmve, -memb
+ -mupdate, -mno-update
+ -mfused-madd, -mno-fused-madd
+
+ -mregnames
+ -meabi
+ -mcall-linux, -mcall-solaris, -mcall-sysv-eabi, -mcall-sysv-noeabi
+ -msdata, -msdata=none, -msdata=default, -msdata=sysv, -msdata=eabi
+ -memb, -msim, -mmvme
+ -myellowknife, -mads
+ wchar_t is now of type long as per the ABI, not unsigned short.
+ -p/-pg support
+ -mcpu=403 now implies -mstrict-align.
+ Implement System V profiling.
+
+ Aix 4.1 GCC targets now default to -mcpu=common so that programs
+ compiled can be moved between rs6000 and powerpc based systems. A
+ consequence of this is that -static won't work, and that some programs
+ may be slightly slower.
+
+ You can select the default value to use for -mcpu=xxx on rs6000 and
+ powerpc targets by using the --with-cpu=xxx option when configuring the
+ compiler. In addition, a new options, -mtune=xxx was added that
+ selects the machine to schedule for but does not select the
+ architecture level.
+
+ Directory names used for storing the multilib libraries on System V
+ and embedded PowerPC systems have been shortened to work with commands
+ like tar that have fixed limits on pathname size.
+
+New features for the Hitachi H8/300(H):
+
+ -malign-300
+ -ms (for the Hitachi H8/S processor)
+ -mint32
+
+New features for the ARM:
+
+ -march=xxx, -mtune=xxx, -mcpu=xxx
+ Support interworking with Thumb code.
+ ARM processor with a.out object format, COFF, or AOF assembler.
+ ARM on "semi-hosted" platform.
+ ARM running NetBSD.
+ ARM running the Linux-based GNU system.
+
+New feature for Solaris systems:
+
+ GCC installation no longer makes a copy of system include files,
+ thus insulating GCC better from updates to the operating system.
+
+
+Noteworthy changes in GCC version 2.7.2
+---------------------------------------
+
+A few bugs have been fixed (most notably the generation of an
+invalid assembler opcode on some RS/6000 systems).
+
+Noteworthy changes in GCC version 2.7.1
+---------------------------------------
+
+This release fixes numerous bugs (mostly minor) in GCC 2.7.0, but
+also contains a few new features, mostly related to specific targets.
+
+Major changes have been made in code to support Windows NT.
+
+The following new targets are supported:
+
+ 2.9 BSD on PDP-11
+ Linux on m68k
+ HP/UX version 10 on HP PA RISC (treated like version 9)
+ DEC Alpha running Windows NT
+
+When parsing C, GCC now recognizes C++ style `//' comments unless you
+specify `-ansi' or `-traditional'.
+
+The PowerPC System V targets (powerpc-*-sysv, powerpc-*-eabi) now use the
+calling sequence specified in the System V Application Binary Interface
+Processor Supplement (PowerPC Processor ABI Supplement) rather than the calling
+sequence used in GCC version 2.7.0. That calling sequence was based on the AIX
+calling sequence without function descriptors. To compile code for that older
+calling sequence, either configure the compiler for powerpc-*-eabiaix or use
+the -mcall-aix switch when compiling and linking.
+
+Noteworthy changes in GCC version 2.7.0
+---------------------------------------
+
+GCC now works better on systems that use ".obj" and ".exe" instead of
+".o" and no extension. This involved changes to the driver program,
+gcc.c, to convert ".o" names to ".obj" and to GCC's Makefile to use
+".obj" and ".exe" in filenames that are not targets. In order to
+build GCC on such systems, you may need versions of GNU make and/or
+compatible shells. At this point, this support is preliminary.
+
+Object file extensions of ".obj" and executable file extensions of
+".exe" are allowed when using appropriate version of GNU Make.
+
+Numerous enhancements were made to the __attribute__ facility including
+more attributes and more places that support it. We now support the
+"packed", "nocommon", "noreturn", "volatile", "const", "unused",
+"transparent_union", "constructor", "destructor", "mode", "section",
+"align", "format", "weak", and "alias" attributes. Each of these
+names may also be specified with added underscores, e.g., "__packed__".
+__attribute__ may now be applied to parameter definitions, function
+definitions, and structure, enum, and union definitions.
+
+GCC now supports returning more structures in registers, as specified by
+many calling sequences (ABIs), such as on the HP PA RISC.
+
+A new option '-fpack-struct' was added to automatically pack all structure
+members together without holes.
+
+There is a new library (cpplib) and program (cppmain) that at some
+point will replace cpp (aka cccp). To use cppmain as cpp now, pass
+the option CCCP=cppmain to make. The library is already used by the
+fix-header program, which should speed up the fixproto script.
+
+New options for supported targets:
+
+ GNU on many targets.
+ NetBSD on MIPS, m68k, VAX, and x86.
+ LynxOS on x86, m68k, Sparc, and RS/6000.
+ VxWorks on many targets.
+
+ Windows/NT on x86 architecture. Initial support for Windows/NT on Alpha
+ (not fully working).
+
+ Many embedded targets, specifically UDI on a29k, aout, coff, elf,
+ and vsta "operating systems" on m68k, m88k, mips, sparc, and x86.
+
+Additional support for x86 (i386, i486, and Pentium):
+
+ Work with old and new linkers for Linux-based GNU systems,
+ supporting both a.out and ELF.
+ FreeBSD on x86.
+ Stdcall convention.
+ -malign-double, -mregparm=, -malign-loops= and -malign-jumps= switches.
+ On ISC systems, support -Xp like -posix.
+
+Additions for RS/6000:
+
+ Instruction scheduling information for PowerPC 403.
+ AIX 4.1 on PowerPC.
+ -mstring and -mno-string.
+ -msoft-float and floating-point emulation included.
+ Preliminary support for PowerPC System V.4 with or without the GNU as.
+ Preliminary support for EABI.
+ Preliminary support for 64-bit systems.
+ Both big and little endian systems.
+
+New features for MIPS-based systems:
+
+ r4650.
+ mips4 and R8000.
+ Irix 6.0.
+ 64-bit ABI.
+ Allow dollar signs in labels on SGI/Irix 5.x.
+
+New support for HP PA RISC:
+
+ Generation of PIC (requires binutils-2.5.2.u6 or later).
+ HP-UX version 9 on HP PA RISC (dynamically links even with -g).
+ Processor variants for HP PA RISC: 700, 7100, and 7100LC.
+ Automatic generation of long calls when needed.
+ -mfast-indirect-calls for kernels and static binaries.
+
+ The called routine now copies arguments passed by invisible reference,
+ as required by the calling standard.
+
+Other new miscellaneous target-specific support:
+
+ -mno-multm on a29k.
+ -mold-align for i960.
+ Configuration for "semi-hosted" ARM.
+ -momit-leaf-frame-pointer for M88k.
+ SH3 variant of Hitachi Super-H and support both big and little endian.
+
+Changes to Objective-C:
+
+ Bare-bones implementation of NXConstantString has been added,
+ which is invoked by the @"string" directive.
+
+ Class * has been changed to Class to conform to the NextSTEP and
+ OpenStep runtime.
+
+ Enhancements to make dynamic loading easier.
+
+ The module version number has been updated to Version 7, thus existing
+ code will need to be recompiled to use the current run-time library.
+
+GCC now supports the ISO Normative Addendum 1 to the C Standard.
+As a result:
+
+ The header <iso646.h> defines macros for C programs written
+ in national variants of ISO 646.
+
+ The following digraph tokens are supported:
+ <: :> <% %> %: %:%:
+ These behave like the following, respectively:
+ [ ] { } # ##
+
+ Digraph tokens are supported unless you specify the `-traditional'
+ option; you do not need to specify `-ansi' or `-trigraphs'. Except
+ for contrived and unlikely examples involving preprocessor
+ stringizing, digraph interpretation doesn't change the meaning of
+ programs; this is unlike trigraph interpretation, which changes the
+ meanings of relatively common strings.
+
+ The macro __STDC_VERSION__ has the value 199409L.
+
+ As usual, for full conformance to the standard, you also need a
+ C library that conforms.
+
+The following lists changes that have been made to g++. If some
+features mentioned below sound unfamiliar, you will probably want to
+look at the recently-released public review copy of the C++ Working
+Paper. For PostScript and PDF (Adobe Acrobat) versions, see the
+archive at ftp://research.att.com/dist/stdc++/WP. For HTML and ASCII
+versions, see ftp://ftp.cygnus.com/pub/g++. On the web, see
+http://www.cygnus.com/~mrs/wp-draft.
+
+The scope of variables declared in the for-init-statement has been changed
+to conform to http://www.cygnus.com/~mrs/wp-draft/stmt.html#stmt.for; as a
+result, packages such as groff 1.09 will not compile unless you specify the
+-fno-for-scope flag. PLEASE DO NOT REPORT THIS AS A BUG; this is a change
+mandated by the C++ standardization committee.
+
+Binary incompatibilities:
+
+ The builtin 'bool' type is now the size of a machine word on RISC targets,
+ for code efficiency; it remains one byte long on CISC targets.
+
+ Code that does not use #pragma interface/implementation will most
+ likely shrink dramatically, as g++ now only emits the vtable for a
+ class in the translation unit where its first non-inline, non-abstract
+ virtual function is defined.
+
+ Classes that do not define the copy constructor will sometimes be
+ passed and returned in registers. This may illuminate latent bugs in
+ your code.
+
+Support for automatic template instantiation has *NOT* been added, due
+to a disagreement over design philosophies.
+
+Support for exception handling has been improved; more targets are now
+supported, and throws will use the RTTI mechanism to match against the
+catch parameter type. Optimization is NOT SUPPORTED with
+-fhandle-exceptions; no need to report this as a bug.
+
+Support for Run-Time Type Identification has been added with -frtti.
+This support is still in alpha; one major restriction is that any file
+compiled with -frtti must include <typeinfo.h>.
+
+Preliminary support for namespaces has been added. This support is far
+from complete, and probably not useful.
+
+Synthesis of compiler-generated constructors, destructors and
+assignment operators is now deferred until the functions are used.
+
+The parsing of expressions such as `a ? b : c = 1' has changed from
+`(a ? b : c) = 1' to `a : b ? (c = 1)'.
+
+The code generated for testing conditions, especially those using ||
+and &&, is now more efficient.
+
+The operator keywords and, and_eq, bitand, bitor, compl, not, not_eq,
+or, or_eq, xor and xor_eq are now supported. Use -ansi or
+-foperator-names to enable them.
+
+The 'explicit' keyword is now supported. 'explicit' is used to mark
+constructors and type conversion operators that should not be used
+implicitly.
+
+g++ now accepts the typename keyword, though it currently has no
+semantics; it can be a no-op in the current template implementation.
+You may want to start using it in your code, however, since the
+pending rewrite of the template implementation to compile STL properly
+(perhaps for 2.8.0, perhaps not) will require you to use it as
+indicated by the current draft.
+
+Handling of user-defined type conversion has been overhauled so that
+type conversion operators are now found and used properly in
+expressions and function calls.
+
+-fno-strict-prototype now only applies to function declarations with
+"C" linkage.
+
+g++ now warns about 'if (x=0)' with -Wparentheses or -Wall.
+
+#pragma weak and #pragma pack are supported on System V R4 targets, as
+are various other target-specific #pragmas supported by gcc.
+
+new and delete of const types is now allowed (with no additional
+semantics).
+
+Explicit instantiation of template methods is now supported. Also,
+'inline template class foo<int>;' can be used to emit only the vtable
+for a template class.
+
+With -fcheck-new, g++ will check the return value of all calls to
+operator new, and not attempt to modify a returned null pointer.
+
+The template instantiation code now handles more conversions when
+passing to a parameter that does not depend on template arguments.
+This means that code like 'string s; cout << s;' now works.
+
+Invalid jumps in a switch statement past declarations that require
+initializations are now caught.
+
+Functions declared 'extern inline' now have the same linkage semantics
+as inline member functions. On supported targets, where previously
+these functions (and vtables, and template instantiations) would have
+been defined statically, they will now be defined as weak symbols so
+that only one out-of-line definition is used.
+
+collect2 now demangles linker output, and c++filt has become part of
+the gcc distribution.
+
+Noteworthy changes in GCC version 2.6.3:
+
+A few more bugs have been fixed.
+
+Noteworthy changes in GCC version 2.6.2:
+
+A few bugs have been fixed.
+
+Names of attributes can now be preceded and followed by double underscores.
+
+Noteworthy changes in GCC version 2.6.1:
+
+Numerous (mostly minor) bugs have been fixed.
+
+The following new configurations are supported:
+
+ GNU on x86 (instead of treating it like MACH)
+ NetBSD on Sparc and Motorola 68k
+ AIX 4.1 on RS/6000 and PowerPC systems
+ Sequent DYNIX/ptx 1.x and 2.x.
+ Both COFF and ELF configurations on AViiON without using /bin/gcc
+ Windows/NT on x86 architecture; preliminary
+ AT&T DSP1610 digital signal processor chips
+ i960 systems on bare boards using COFF
+ PDP11; target only and not extensively tested
+
+The -pg option is now supported for Alpha under OSF/1 V3.0 or later.
+
+Files with an extension of ".c++" are treated as C++ code.
+
+The -Xlinker and -Wl arguments are now passed to the linker in the
+position they were specified on the command line. This makes it
+possible, for example, to pass flags to the linker about specific
+object files.
+
+The use of positional arguments to the configure script is no longer
+recommended. Use --target= to specify the target; see the GCC manual.
+
+The 386 now supports two new switches: -mreg-alloc=<string> changes
+the default register allocation order used by the compiler, and
+-mno-wide-multiply disables the use of the mul/imul instructions that
+produce 64 bit results in EAX:EDX from 32 bit operands to do long long
+multiplies and 32-bit division by constants.
+
+Noteworthy changes in GCC version 2.6.0:
+
+Numerous bugs have been fixed, in the C and C++ front-ends, as
+well as in the common compiler code.
+
+This release includes the C, Objective-C, and C++ compilers. However,
+we have moved the files for the C++ compiler (G++) files to a
+subdirectory, cp. Subsequent releases of GCC will split these files
+to a separate TAR file.
+
+The G++ team has been tracking the development of the ANSI standard for C++.
+Here are some new features added from the latest working paper:
+
+ * built-in boolean type 'bool', with constants 'true' and 'false'.
+ * array new and delete (operator new [] and delete []).
+ * WP-conforming lifetime of temporaries.
+ * explicit instantiation of templates (template class A<int>;),
+ along with an option (-fno-implicit-templates) to disable emission
+ of implicitly instantiated templates, obsoletes -fexternal-templates.
+ * static member constants (static const int foo = 4; within the
+ class declaration).
+
+Many error messages have been improved to tell the user more about the
+problem. Conformance checking with -pedantic-errors has been
+improved. G++ now compiles Fresco.
+
+There is now an experimental implementation of virtual functions using
+thunks instead of Cfront-style vtables, enabled with -fvtable-thunks.
+This option also enables a heuristic which causes the compiler to only
+emit the vtable in the translation unit where its first non-inline
+virtual function is defined; using this option and
+-fno-implicit-templates, users should be able to avoid #pragma
+interface/implementation altogether.
+
+Signatures have been added as a GNU C++ extension. Using the option
+-fhandle-signatures, users are able to turn on recognition of
+signatures. A short introduction on signatures is in the section
+`Extension to the C++ Language' in the manual.
+
+The `g++' program is now a C program, rather than a shell script.
+
+Lots and lots and lots of bugs fixes, in nested types, access control,
+pointers to member functions, the parser, templates, overload
+resolution, etc, etc.
+
+There have been two major enhancements to the Objective-C compiler:
+
+1) Added portability. It now runs on Alpha, and some problems with
+ message forwarding have been addressed on other platforms.
+
+2) Selectors have been redefined to be pointers to structs like:
+ { void *sel_id, char *sel_types }, where the sel_id is the unique
+ identifier, the selector itself is no longer unique.
+
+ Programmers should use the new function sel_eq to test selector
+ equivalence.
+
+The following major changes have been made to the base compiler and
+machine-specific files.
+
+- The MIL-STD-1750A is a new port, but still preliminary.
+
+- The h8/300h is now supported; both the h8/300 and h8/300h ports come
+ with 32 bit IEEE 754 software floating point support.
+
+- The 64-bit Sparc (v9) and 64-bit MIPS chips are supported.
+
+- NetBSD is supported on m68k, Intel x86, and pc523 systems and FreeBSD
+ on x86.
+
+- COFF is supported on x86, m68k, and Sparc systems running LynxOS.
+
+- 68K systems from Bull and Concurrent are supported and System V
+ Release 4 is supported on the Atari.
+
+- GCC supports GAS on the Motorola 3300 (sysV68) and debugging
+ (assuming GAS) on the Plexus 68K system. (However, GAS does not yet
+ work on those systems).
+
+- System V Release 4 is supported on MIPS (Tandem).
+
+- For DG/UX, an ELF configuration is now supported, and both the ELF
+ and BCS configurations support ELF and COFF object file formats.
+
+- OSF/1 V2.0 is supported on Alpha.
+
+- Function profiling is also supported on Alpha.
+
+- GAS and GDB is supported for Irix 5 (MIPS).
+
+- "common mode" (code that will run on both POWER and PowerPC
+ architectures) is now supported for the RS/6000 family; the
+ compiler knows about more PPC chips.
+
+- Both NeXTStep 2.1 and 3 are supported on 68k-based architectures.
+
+- On the AMD 29k, the -msoft-float is now supported, as well as
+ -mno-sum-in-toc for RS/6000, -mapp-regs and -mflat for Sparc, and
+ -membedded-pic for MIPS.
+
+- GCC can now convert division by integer constants into the equivalent
+ multiplication and shift operations when that is faster than the
+ division.
+
+- Two new warning options, -Wbad-function-cast and
+ -Wmissing-declarations have been added.
+
+- Configurations may now add machine-specific __attribute__ options on
+ type; many machines support the `section' attribute.
+
+- The -ffast-math flag permits some optimization that violate strict
+ IEEE rules, such as converting X * 0.0 to 0.0.
+
+Noteworthy changes in GCC version 2.5.8:
+
+This release only fixes a few serious bugs. These include fixes for a
+bug that prevented most programs from working on the RS/6000, a bug
+that caused invalid assembler code for programs with a `switch'
+statement on the NS32K, a G++ problem that caused undefined names in
+some configurations, and several less serious problems, some of which
+can affect most configuration.
+
+Noteworthy change in GCC version 2.5.7:
+
+This release only fixes a few bugs, one of which was causing bootstrap
+compare errors on some systems.
+
+Noteworthy change in GCC version 2.5.6:
+
+A few backend bugs have been fixed, some of which only occur on one
+machine.
+
+The C++ compiler in 2.5.6 includes:
+
+ * fixes for some common crashes
+ * correct handling of nested types that are referenced as `foo::bar'
+ * spurious warnings about friends being declared static and never
+ defined should no longer appear
+ * enums that are local to a method in a class, or a class that's
+ local to a function, are now handled correctly. For example:
+ class foo { void bar () { enum { x, y } E; x; } };
+ void bar () { class foo { enum { x, y } E; E baz; }; }
+
+Noteworthy change in GCC version 2.5.5:
+
+A large number of C++ bugs have been fixed.
+
+The fixproto script adds prototypes conditionally on __cplusplus.
+
+Noteworthy change in GCC version 2.5.4:
+
+A bug fix in passing of structure arguments for the HP-PA architecture
+makes code compiled with GCC 2.5.4 incompatible with code compiled
+with earlier versions (if it passes struct arguments of 33 to 64 bits,
+interspersed with other types of arguments).
+
+Noteworthy change in gcc version 2.5.3:
+
+The method of "mangling" C++ function names has been changed. So you
+must recompile all C++ programs completely when you start using GCC
+2.5. Also, GCC 2.5 requires libg++ version 2.5. Earlier libg++
+versions won't work with GCC 2.5. (This is generally true--GCC
+version M.N requires libg++ version M.N.)
+
+Noteworthy GCC changes in version 2.5:
+
+* There is now support for the IBM 370 architecture as a target.
+Currently the only operating system supported is MVS; GCC does not run
+on MVS, so you must produce .s files using GCC as a cross compiler,
+then transfer them to MVS to assemble them. This port is not reliable
+yet.
+
+* The Power PC is now supported.
+
+* The i860-based Paragon machine is now supported.
+
+* The Hitachi 3050 (an HP-PA machine) is now supported.
+
+* The variable __GNUC_MINOR__ holds the minor version number of GCC, as
+an integer. For version 2.5.X, the value is 5.
+
+* In C, initializers for static and global variables are now processed
+an element at a time, so that they don't need a lot of storage.
+
+* The C syntax for specifying which structure field comes next in an
+initializer is now `.FIELDNAME='. The corresponding syntax for
+array initializers is now `[INDEX]='. For example,
+
+ char whitespace[256]
+ = { [' '] = 1, ['\t'] = 1, ['\n'] = 1 };
+
+This was changed to accord with the syntax proposed by the Numerical
+C Extensions Group (NCEG).
+
+* Complex numbers are now supported in C. Use the keyword __complex__
+to declare complex data types. See the manual for details.
+
+* GCC now supports `long double' meaningfully on the Sparc (128-bit
+floating point) and on the 386 (96-bit floating point). The Sparc
+support is enabled on Solaris 2.x because earlier system versions
+(SunOS 4) have bugs in the emulation.
+
+* All targets now have assertions for cpu, machine and system. So you
+can now use assertions to distinguish among all supported targets.
+
+* Nested functions in C may now be inline. Just declare them inline
+in the usual way.
+
+* Packed structure members are now supported fully; it should be possible
+to access them on any supported target, no matter how little alignment
+they have.
+
+* To declare that a function does not return, you must now write
+something like this (works only in 2.5):
+
+ void fatal () __attribute__ ((noreturn));
+
+or like this (works in older versions too):
+
+ typedef void voidfn ();
+
+ volatile voidfn fatal;
+
+It used to be possible to do so by writing this:
+
+ volatile void fatal ();
+
+but it turns out that ANSI C requires that to mean something
+else (which is useless).
+
+Likewise, to declare that a function is side-effect-free
+so that calls may be deleted or combined, write
+something like this (works only in 2.5):
+
+ int computation () __attribute__ ((const));
+
+or like this (works in older versions too):
+
+ typedef int intfn ();
+
+ const intfn computation;
+
+* The new option -iwithprefixbefore specifies a directory to add to
+the search path for include files in the same position where -I would
+put it, but uses the specified prefix just like -iwithprefix.
+
+* Basic block profiling has been enhanced to record the function the
+basic block comes from, and if the module was compiled for debugging,
+the line number and filename. A default version of the basic block
+support module has been added to libgcc2 that appends the basic block
+information to a text file 'bb.out'. Machine descriptions can now
+override the basic block support module in the target macro file.
+
+New features in g++:
+
+* The new flag `-fansi-overloading' for C++. Use a newly implemented
+scheme of argument matching for C++. It makes g++ more accurately
+obey the rules set down in Chapter 13 of the Annotated C++ Reference
+Manual (the ARM). This option will be turned on by default in a
+future release.
+
+* The -finline-debug flag is now gone (it was never really used by the
+ compiler).
+
+* Recognizing the syntax for pointers to members, e.g., "foo::*bar", has been
+ dramatically improved. You should not get any syntax errors or incorrect
+ runtime results while using pointers to members correctly; if you do, it's
+ a definite bug.
+
+* Forward declaration of an enum is now flagged as an error.
+
+* Class-local typedefs are now working properly.
+
+* Nested class support has been significantly improved. The compiler
+ will now (in theory) support up to 240 nested classes before hitting
+ other system limits (like memory size).
+
+* There is a new C version of the `g++' driver, to replace the old
+ shell script. This should significantly improve the performance of
+ executing g++ on a system where a user's PATH environment variable
+ references many NFS-mounted filesystems. This driver also works
+ under MS-DOS and OS/2.
+
+* The ANSI committee working on the C++ standard has adopted a new
+ keyword `mutable'. This will allow you to make a specific member be
+ modifiable in an otherwise const class.
+
+Noteworthy GCC changes in version 2.4.4:
+
+ A crash building g++ on various hosts (including m68k) has been
+ fixed. Also the g++ compiler no longer reports incorrect
+ ambiguities in some situations where they do not exist, and
+ const template member functions are now being found properly.
+
+Noteworthy GCC changes in version 2.4:
+
+* On each target, the default is now to return short structures
+compatibly with the "usual" compiler on that target.
+
+For most targets, this means the default is to return all structures
+in memory, like long structures, in whatever way is used on that
+target. Use -freg-struct-return to enable returning short structures
+(and unions) in registers.
+
+This change means that newly compiled binaries are incompatible with
+binaries compiled with previous versions of GCC.
+
+On some targets, GCC is itself the usual compiler. On these targets,
+the default way to return short structures is still in registers.
+Use -fpcc-struct-return to tell GCC to return them in memory.
+
+* There is now a floating point emulator which can imitate the way all
+supported target machines do floating point arithmetic.
+
+This makes it possible to have cross compilation to and from the VAX,
+and between machines of different endianness. However, this works
+only when the target machine description is updated to use the new
+facilities, and not all have been updated.
+
+This also makes possible support for longer floating point types.
+GCC 2.4 supports extended format on the 68K if you use `long double',
+for targets that have a 68881. (When we have run time library
+routines for extended floating point, then `long double' will use
+extended format on all 68K targets.)
+
+We expect to support extended floating point on the i386 and Sparc in
+future versions.
+
+* Building GCC now automatically fixes the system's header files.
+This should require no attention.
+
+* GCC now installs an unsigned data type as size_t when it fixes the
+header files (on all but a handful of old target machines).
+Therefore, the bug that size_t failed to be unsigned is fixed.
+
+* Building and installation are now completely separate.
+All new files are constructed during the build process;
+installation just copies them.
+
+* New targets supported: Clipper, Hitachi SH, Hitachi 8300, and Sparc
+Lite.
+
+* A totally new and much better Objective C run time system is included.
+
+* Objective C supports many new features. Alas, I can't describe them
+since I don't use that language; however, they are the same ones
+supported in recent versions of the NeXT operating system.
+
+* The builtin functions __builtin_apply_args, __builtin_apply and
+__builtin_return let you record the arguments and returned
+value of a function without knowing their number or type.
+
+* The builtin string variables __FUNCTION__ and __PRETTY_FUNCTION__
+give the name of the function in the source, and a pretty-printed
+version of the name. The two are the same in C, but differ in C++.
+
+* Casts to union types do not yield lvalues.
+
+* ## before an empty rest argument discards the preceding sequence
+of non-whitespace characters from the macro definition.
+(This feature is subject to change.)
+
+
+New features specific to C++:
+
+* The manual contains a new section ``Common Misunderstandings with
+GNU C++'' that C++ users should read.
+
+* #pragma interface and #pragma implementation let you use the same
+C++ source file for both interface and implementation.
+However, this mechanism is still in transition.
+
+* Named returned values let you avoid an extra constructor call
+when a function result has a class type.
+
+* The C++ operators <? and >? yield min and max, respectively.
+
+* C++ gotos can exit a block safely even if the block has
+aggregates that require destructors.
+
+* gcc defines the macro __GNUG__ when compiling C++ programs.
+
+* GNU C++ now correctly distinguishes between the prefix and postfix
+forms of overloaded operator ++ and --. To avoid breaking old
+code, if a class defines only the prefix form, the compiler
+accepts either ++obj or obj++, unless -pedantic is used.
+
+* If you are using version 2.3 of libg++, you need to rebuild it with
+`make CC=gcc' to avoid mismatches in the definition of `size_t'.
+
+Newly documented compiler options:
+
+-fnostartfiles
+ Omit the standard system startup files when linking.
+
+-fvolatile-global
+ Consider memory references to extern and global data items to
+ be volatile.
+
+-idirafter DIR
+ Add DIR to the second include path.
+
+-iprefix PREFIX
+ Specify PREFIX for later -iwithprefix options.
+
+-iwithprefix DIR
+ Add PREFIX/DIR to the second include path.
+
+-mv8
+ Emit Sparc v8 code (with integer multiply and divide).
+-msparclite
+ Emit Sparclite code (roughly v7.5).
+
+-print-libgcc-file-name
+ Search for the libgcc.a file, print its absolute file name, and exit.
+
+-Woverloaded-virtual
+ Warn when a derived class function declaration may be an error
