Finding compiler bugs with C-Reduce

Nick Desaulniers

It’s also highly entertaining to watch C-Reduce work its magic. Support for a long awaited GNU C extension, asm goto , is in the midst of landing in Clang and LLVM. We want to make sure that we release a high quality implementation, so it’s important to test the new patches on real code and not just small test cases. When we hit compiler bugs in large source files, it can be tricky to find exactly what part of potentially large translation units are problematic.

Can a Business Rent a Core Capability?

The Agile Manager

Social media is a form of entertainment that shifts people's allocation of their leisure time.
