The Intel® C++ Compiler 11.0 compiles C and C++ source files on Mac OS* X operating systems. The compiler is supported on IA-32 and Intel® 64 architectures.
You can run use with the Intel C++ Compiler in the Xcode* integrated development environment or from the command line.
You must first create or choose an existing C or C++ Xcode* project. These instructions assume you are creating a new project.
See the Building Applications with Xcode* section in the compiler documentation for more information about using the compiler with the Xcode integrated development environment.
Start using the compiler by performing the following steps:
One way to set the environment variables prior to invoking the compiler is to "source" the compiler environment script, iccvars.sh (or iccvars.csh):
source <install-dir>/bin/iccvars.sh <arg>
where <install-dir> is the directory structure containing the compiler /bin directory, and <arg> is the architecture argument listed below.
The environment script takes an argument based on architecture; valid arguments are as follows:
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® C++ Compiler includes the following performance libraries. Refer to the appropriate sections of the documentation listed for information about using these libraries.
|Performance Libraries||See the...|
|Intel® Threading Building Blocks||Intel® Threading Building Blocks Getting Started Guide included with the Intel® Threading Building Blocks documentation.|
|Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives||Installation Guide included with the Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives documentation.|
|Intel® Math Kernel Library||Intel® Math Kernel Library User's Guide included with the Intel® Math Kernel Library documentation.|
The documentation is located in the directories under the <install-dir>/Documentation/ directory. If you installed all of the appropriate components, you can find documentation on the following:
The Release Notes contain information on installing the Intel® C++ Compiler.
The Intel® C++ User and Reference Guides documentation is available as an Apple Developer Documentation documentation set.
In addition to the documentation listed above, some of these components include documentation in the form of man pages.
Note: If you selected to not install a component, the associated documentation is not installed.
