This manual describes the components of the Oracle Solaris Studio 12.2 software, and indicates how you can use them together in your application development work flow.
This manual is for C, C++, and Fortran application developers who are new to Oracle Solaris Studio and want to get an understanding of the many tools, compilers, and programming libraries available in the product. The manual does not provide detailed information about using the tools, but does show how a developer might use them together to edit, build, and analyze their application projects.
This Oracle Solaris Studio release supports systems that use the SPARC and x86 families of processor architectures: UltraSPARC, SPARC64, AMD64, Pentium, and Xeon EM64T. The supported systems for the version of the Solaris operating system you are running are available in the hardware compatibility lists at http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/hcl. These documents cite any implementation differences between the platform types.
In this document, these x86 related terms mean the following:
“x86” refers to the larger family of 64–bit and 32–bit x86 compatible products.
“x64” points out specific 64–bit information about AMD64 or EM64T systems.
“32–bit x86” points out specific 32–bit information about x86 based systems.
For supported systems, see the hardware compatibility lists.
