The Intel® C++ Compiler 9.1 compiles C
and C++ source
files on Linux* systems. The compiler is supported
on IA-32, Intel
You can run the Intel C++ Compiler from the command line or within the Eclipse* integrated development environment. Eclipse is supported on IA-32 and Itanium-based systems.
The default root installation path for the Intel C++ Compiler is /opt/intel/cc/9.1.xxx, where xxx represents a 3-digit build number. On Intel EM64T systems, the path is /opt/intel/cce/9.1.xxx. The term <install-dir> is used in the documentation to refer to this default installation path.
The compiler documentation is installed under <install-dir>/doc/. See the Documentation Index (Doc_Index.htm) for a short description of each documentation component.
You must "source" the compiler environment script, iccvars.sh (or iccvars.csh), to set the environment variables prior to invoking the compiler:
To compile a C language source file (for example, my_source_file.c), use the following command:
To compile C++ source files, use this command:
Following successful compilation, an executable named a.out is created in the current directory.
The Intel compiler also includes man pages. After sourcing the environment script, open the man page to view a complete list of compiler options:
You can read a summary of compiler options from the command line by invoking the compiler with the -help option:
If you installed the Eclipse integrated development environment with the Intel compiler, you should "source" iccvars.sh (or iccvars.csh), then run the iccec script to open Eclipse:
See the Building Applications section in the compiler documentation for more information about using the compiler with Eclipse.
