Know your tools: speed comparison between C++ compilers

November 11, 2013 Francisco Almeida General

As compilers continuously evolve, developers have new expectations on compilation speed, generated code performance and standards compliance. Slashdot has published their own benchmarks that pit Intel C++, G++ and LLVM Clang against each other. The benchmark is tailored to modern C++ development needs and involves code using both the TBB and the Cilk Plus parallel processing libraries. Quite […]



ISO C++ evolving faster than before

May 20, 2013 Francisco Almeida General

The ISO C++ 2011 standard was a very exciting (and on some of its features, controversial) development for the language, up until when it was finalized and approved. There was hope, though not without some skepticism, that the standard would evolve at a faster pace in the future. Fast forward to May 2013, and what […]

This news comes straight from Modules – by Doug Gregor, Apple This video concerns the latest proposal from the Clang team, and it definitely is very interesting for those of us looking forward to the next C++ standard (which could become a reality as soon as 2014, rather than 2017, by the way). Modules […]



C++ benchmark – std::vector VS std::list

December 5, 2012 Marc Gregoire General

Here is an interesting article that compares the performance of std::vector with the performance of std::list in various use case scenarios (using a C++11 compiler). It’s an interesting read. Some people will not expect the results. I’m not going to spoil the conclusion, just a quick look at the graphs in the article should tell […]
