The ethics of using "clang" most certainly were. Perhaps you
missed the word "or" that I used to distinquish between the possible
causes. Furthermore, the "usefulness" of using "clang" VS GCC were also
voiced by at least on poster. He stated, correctly or not is not an
issue here, that "clang" produces slower code VS GCC for math
intensive operations. It was also pointed out that Linux is solidly in
bed with GCC, at least at the present time. Therefore, the "other
operating system" requirement has been fulfilled. I did not say, nor
mean to convey that every condition had to be met in every post in every
thread. It is more of a cumulative effect. Very easy to overlook unless
each post is read in its entirety.
