    Phoronix: LLVM Clang 3.4 Compiler Performance Is Doing Good

    The release of LLVM 3.4 is imminent and with the major compiler infrastructure upgrade comes update to the Clang C/C++ compiler front-end, LLDB debugger, and other LLVM sub-projects. LLVM 3.4 is a very righteous release and in celebration of its forthcoming release, it's back into compiler benchmarking season at Phoronix.

      I don't see GCC 4.8 results thus this article becomes less useful ... almost useless

        ARGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!!! This is one of by pet peeves. Unless LLVM is consciously doing good deeds or acts of kindness compiling your code quickly into a fast binary (I don't think it cares), it should be "...Doing Well".

        The point of the article was to compare LLVM 3.3 against current 3.4:

        I'm looking forward to that article, too
        ... and when intel mainlines openmp

          How hard is it to correctly state?:

          You feel good, a compiler doesn't do good, nor does its performance do good. It's performing well.

            Maybe it was just a giant joke Michael is playing on us? That's why he said it was righteous?

              English isn't his first language. If you want to correct him that's fine but I think it would be nice to do so with a little less attitude.
              It is a common mistake even among native English speakers.

                It's US English slang meaning (of the very best kind <a nightspot that's a dependable venue for righteous jazz>)

                  See my post above in regards to righteous, and your wrong on both accounts a compiler does nether. But in the US both "Good and Well" are appropriate in this context.

                  My father is in "Good" health.
                  My father is doing "Well"

                  The Compiler is in "Good" health.
                  The compiler is doing "Well"

                  In the US both "Good" and "Well" are not normally mutually exclusive.

                    I also find it strange, that we consider the US's native language to be English, when the American spoken language is actually made up of English, German, French, Spanish, ...

                    In my family we address many things by there Polish name. And I am not even Polish but my wife is.

                      There's nothing righteous about a permissively licensed software which blatantly encourages creation of proprietary software from public domain software.

                        LLVM is MIT/BSD and unlike the "GPL" actually gives you freedom instead of taking your freedom away.

                          Yeah, Freedom to remove other people's freedoms and abuse them. People like you must have campaigned to legalize slavery.

                            If you wan't to turn this discussion into a situation were we go back and forth insulting each other, I'm not interested.

                            The only argument with your statement that I can offer is that my definition of Freedom is comparable to that of Free Speech, I may not like everything that people say
                            but I wouldn't restrict there freedom to protect them from saying it or others from hearing it. With true freedom there is positives and negatives.

                            I have no doubt that Apple and M$ take and use BSD code, but does that really matter? Look at what Android has done to there profits and market-share. Granted I don't particularly like to be associated with Android per my prejudice against "Java",but I will take Androids success as a win for the good guys.

                            Lastly don't let your self become so filled with the hatred for all things "proprietary" that you inadvertently become what you tryed so hard not to become a "slave".

                            Thank RMS for GCC.
                            LLVM isn't an Apple project its sponsored by Apple and many many others. Their not tricking anyone into doing anything. It's simple a difference of opinion, in regards to what true software freedom is. Kde, Qt, Gnome, Nvidia, Mesa, .... all have a stake in LLVM.

                            GCC served its purpose, but LLVM is what's going to replace it.

                              Ummmm at that time you didn't have to convince anyone to legalize slavery as it was never illegal to begin with, every country on this planet at one time or another had slaves. Did you know that there were also White slaves in the US at one point?
