DIGNUS, LLC RELEASES VERSION 1.30 OF THEIR C COMPILER, SYSTEMS/C, TO RUN ON AND BUILD FOR LINUX/390.
Raleigh, July 21, 2000: Today, Dignus, LLC announces the release of version 1.30 of their C compiler, Systems/C. New in this release is support for producing assembler source that can be assembled on Linux/390, enabling support for BUILDING Linux/390 programs. Furthermore, Systems/C is available on a Linux/390 host, supporting all of its existing features in that environment. Version 1.30 was developed in cooperation with Software AG, located in Darmstadt, Germany. Software AG, the largest European supplier of system software, is using the Dignus Systems/C compiler to realize the release of several products, including its native XML database Tamino (www.tamino.com) on Linux/390 scheduled later this year.
Systems/C version 1.30 awards all the same functions available for OS/390 programming to Linux/390, as well as improved and augmented features. For example, Linux/390 programmers can take advantage of Systems/C programming enhancements in a Linux/390 environment.
Also present in version 1.30 of Systems/C are enhancements to our existing OS/390 systems programming facilities, including a new direct call interface and refined assembler language interfaces.
Systems/C has grown to offer support for multiple IBM C environments in IBM C compatible mode. This allows the user to select the C/370 version they use. In addition it is available with options to support pre-HLASM assemblers!.
Systems/C is available as a native compiler for OS/390 and Linux/390, or as a cross-compiler hosted on Windows, Solaris, Linux and FreeBSD. The cross-compiler license allows you to compile on your PC, saving comapnies enormous amounts of mainframe cycles.
Providing yet another solution of merit, should
come as no surprise. Dignus, LLC is in the business of producing compilers,
and only compilers. That is why Systems/C is the best-supported
compiler in the industry!
