PathScale Releases EKOPath 5 Compiler

EKOPath 5 is a major revision of the leading C, C++; Fortran compiler suite

PathScale is now shipping EKOPath 5 for C, C++ (03/11), and Fortran (90/95/2003/2008).

This new version is available immediately at no additional cost to customers with a current support entitlement. A 15-day free trial version is available to qualified new customers by sending a request to sales(at)pathscale(dot)com.

The new version of the EKOPath Compiler Suite introduces several key functional enhancements including support for the 2011 C++ standard, new CLANG based parser and semantic analysis, faster compile times, aggressive inlining for C++ and reduced code size.In addition, PathScale EKOPath compilers now support the latest Intel and AMD architectures. This enables programmers to standardize on a single compiler suite for AMD64 and Intel 64 computing applications. In real-world application testing performed by beta users, EKOPath 5 continues to excel in robustness and extend its performance lead over alternative compiler products. This makes PathScale the clear choice for compiling 64-bit Linux applications and delivering maximum performance.
