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.
Skype uses P2P (peer-to-peer) technology to provide voice- and video-based communication with other Internet users. The technology is extremely advanced, but easy to use. It features excellent sound quality, end-to-end encryption, and automatic negotiation of firewalls or routers. Among major features are SkypeOut and SkypeIn, adding the possibility to make low-cost calls to land line phones and having a fixed number to be able to receive calls from land line phones.
Wt is a C++ library for developing Web applications with an API that is widget-centric and inspired by existing C++ graphical user interface APIs. To the developer, it offers abstraction of Web-specific implementation details, increasing the accessibility and portability. Under the hood, the library uses the latest techniques (HTML5, Ajax, WebSockets) to handle user events and update the Web page.
