MachTen CodeBuilder includes a native fast file system, an enhanced suite of UNIX software development tools based on the latest GNU (gcc 2.8.1) and the next-generation EGCS (egcs 1.1b) compilers, including a validated Ada95 compiler, C, Objective-C, C++, Fortran and Java (kaffe 1.0b1). A new compiler option lets data structures be aligned on PPC boundaries, resulting in significant performance enhancements. CodeBuilder's fast file system reduces compilations one third the time. Also included is a high-performance X11R6 development environment with an OpenGL option and over 100 X client applications, as well as a suite of popular internet scripting tools (Perl 5.005_01, tcl/tk, expect, bash, csh, and sh), popular editors (emacs, BBEdit Lite, Alpha), and hundreds of standard UNIX applications and utilities.
