|Oracle Solaris Studio 12.3 Overview Oracle Solaris Studio 12.3 Information Library|
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 software applications under development.
This Oracle Solaris Studio release supports platforms that use the SPARC family of processor architectures running the Oracle Solaris operating system, as well as platforms that use the x86 family of processor architectures running Oracle Solaris or specific Linux systems.
This document uses the following terms to cite differences between x86 platforms:
“x86” refers to the larger family of 64-bit and 32-bit x86 compatible products.
“x64” points out specific 64-bit x86 compatible CPUs.
“32-bit x86” points out specific 32-bit information about x86 based systems.
Information specific to Linux systems refers only to supported Linux x86 platforms, while information specific to Oracle Solaris systems refers only to supported Oracle Solaris platforms on SPARC and x86 systems.
For a complete list of supported hardware platforms and operating system releases, see the Oracle Solaris Studio 12.3 Release Notes.
