FreeBSD "I've made clang the default on x86 systems. There will probably be a few bumps as we work out the last kinks including a ABI issue for i386 system libraries, but the transition is expected to be fairly smooth for most users."

RE[4]: why?

Member since:

Thanks for the link. The site says that cling is an "interactive interpreter" for the C++ language, thus I figure it is something like "ipython" is for Python?

The concept is interesting, I've never heard of anything like it. But it's not clear to me how this could be used to compile some code that uses OpenMP.

CERN surely does HPC, but I bet their parallel codes were developed using MPI, which is a completely different technique and is supported by clang. Our codes rely both on MPI and OpenMP, and changing them to remove the dependency from the latter would be a huge (and useless) pain.
