New Absoft's Development Solutions with Intel Tools

Absoft Corporation has announced plans to offer software development solutions designed for Apple's new Intel-based computers. The new software development solutions extend Absoft's existing product line for PowerPC-based systems from Apple. The new developer solutions include tools from Intel and Absoft optimized specifically for Apple computers using Intel processors including the new iMac and MacBook Pro computers using Intel Core Duo processors.

The new solutions will combine best-of-breed compilers, debuggers, and libraries from Intel, Absoft, and third party manufacturers to provide scientists, engineers, educators, and students with the best possible development tools on Apple computers using Intel processors. This will give Apple software developers the best choices for developing and porting software applications written in Fortran and C/C++. These tools will be bundled into different configurations depending on customers' exact needs:

- Intel components: Fortran, C/C++ Compilers, Math Kernel Library, Integrated Performance Primitives.
- Absoft components: Fortran, C/C++ Compilers, Fx2 Fortran/C/C++ Debugger, Modules Environment, Integrated Development Environment, Common License Manager, Spotlight plug-in for Fortran, and Fortran examples and benchmarks.
- Software Development Kits (SDKs) for high-performance computing (HPC) environments will also be offered containing the top-performing Intel and Absoft components together with numerous third party products also to be announced soon.

Many of the solutions will include increasingly popular tools such as Absoft's market leading Fx2 Debugger and the Absoft Modules Environment, which helps developers migrate their applications from other platforms, from 32-bit to 64-bit systems, or from single-core to multi-core applications.
