Hi folks,

My boss has asked me to evaluate compilers provided by different
vendors. I have never evaluated compilers before. I do not have
idea as to how to proceed with the evaluation of the compilers.

I would be very thankful if someone gives me the list of
benchmarking tests that could be used for evaluating a compiler.
What should be the parameters one should consider for evaluation
of the compiler.

Please mail me at babujm@wipsys.soft.net

Thanks a lot in advance...

issues are important to you, e.g. quality of tools, debugging features,
available libraries, vendor support, price. I suppose code quality's in
there somewhere, too. -John]
