Title[edit]

Should this article rather be properly named Intel C++ Compiler and with Intel C Compiler as a redirect? Intel uses the name "Intel C++ Compiler" for all C/C++ compilers on all platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X) except for the "Intel C Compiler for EFI Byte Code" [1], but for an article that supposely deal with "Intel C Compiler" there is no information found for that anywhere. — Ylai 03:32, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

When I originally created the article, I didn't notice that it was always called C++. After creating it, I felt I'd done quite enough damage for the day and left it alone where it was. So yeah, I think you did the right thing. --Steven Fisher 18:37, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

Intel C++ compiler is also available on QNX. --Alnsn (talk) 10:20, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Target architectures[edit]

We mention the target architectures both in the top and in a separate section. Is this duplication really needed? --Ysangkok 19:53, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

What does the compiler define / how to tell it apart from others[edit]

Most compilers will define things like

__GNU__

__SUNPRO_C

__digital__

which allows you to work out what the compiler is. A list of the macros defined specifically by this compiler (not obvious ones link 'unix') would be useful. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.78.42.15 (talk) 15:09, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

The Intel compiler defines __INTEL_COMPILER (source). --Лъчезар共产主义万岁 12:13, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

anti trust investigation[edit]

The last sentece of the article does not make much sense to me: "In late 2010, Intel settled an US Federal Trade Commission antitrust investigation against Intel.[22]" —Preceding unsigned comment added by 140.254.80.237 (talk) 21:51, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

the past is the future?[edit]

"The following versions of Intel C++ Compiler have been released" "Intel C++ Composer XE 2011 Update 6 and above (compiler 12.1)" "Nov 8, 2011" That's in the future. Should be be 2010, not 2011? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.196.162.161 (talk) 03:22, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

Visual Studio[edit]

Note that latest versions for Windows not work without Visual C++ — Preceding unsigned comment added by 178.150.254.214 (talk) 22:56, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
