    Actually, Q posted a shot of a crossdresser that may have wearing a dirndl. This is a dirndl:

      You're absolutely correct. My information gathering works like this:
      Code:
      If (knowlegdeAlready)
      {
          if (sourceValueInBrain < sourceValueNotInBrain)
          {
              rememberSource ();
              saveToBrain ();
              acknowledge ();
          }
          else
          {
              discusionWhoring ();
          }
      }
      else
      { 
          rememberSource ();
          saveToBrain ();
      }
      I didn't have any information on it so I took the marketing dept as truth

        Interesting, given that compile speed is perhaps LLVM/Clang's main claim to fame (in code speed it still loses out to GCC in my benchmarks and most public ones I've seen), so I gather Pathscale compilers are really fast ? Mainly I'm interested in the performance though, how would you compare ekopath vs icc in this regard?

          Heh, yeah, marketing isn't always based on absolute facts

          It was (again according to the marketing dept) voted '2004 supercomputing product of the year', but that was a 'few' years back.

          Likely the open sourcing of ekopath (let's hope we're not jumping the gun here) is partly because of competition and the hopes that open sourcing will add mindshare/publicity regarding their ekopath compiler suite, which is just fine with me.

              I want to bitch about articles like this on principle, but this may actually have been quite helpful. I was just about to lay down a ton of cash for an ICC license pack, and if this is EKOPath being released for free soon than Michael may have just saved us close to $10k.

              Guess we'll have to wait a bit and see.

                For whatever it is, I'm told "the ball is rolling" from the company... so something will be stated within a few hours.

                  "Dirndl is a new project" means absolutely nothing. Did you read the sentence you quoted?

                  Literally all this says, its something named Dirndl that has performance increases. So very, very vague. Not once did the article say what it actually is.

                    Hey, here's what googling around reveals:

                    While details of the company's technology is still a closely guarded secret, PathScale is currently running its CUDA-killer through an alpha testing period - and Bergstr?m has promised that whatever technology comes out of the other end will be open source and freely licensed.
