Intel C++ Compiler

The Intel C++ Compiler for Linux is a full fledged C/C++ compiler and debugger suite. Its aim is to provide outstanding performance for all Intel 32-bit and 64-bit processors, while not requiring the need for porting applications from other compilers. It provides optimization technology, threaded application support, and features to take advantage of Hyper-Threading technology. It is substantially source and object code compatible with GNU C, providing fullest compatibility with GCC and G++ 3.x/4.x both in terms of code and of API. It is thereby also easy to integrate with existing development environments.
