Re: gcc3 vs 176.gcc


<<I'm not exactly sure what you're asking.  SPEC CPU2000 is a benchmark,
not a test.  SPEC regards standards compliance as a desirable goal, but
not a requirement.  They are more interested in portability.  There are
other cases where SPEC has nonstandard usage.  For example, "long long"
was used before it was in the standards.

There is a difference between an extended feature, which the SPEC suite
therefore tends to encourage people to implement, and undefined code,
which means that a valid compiler can produce anything (presumably
any such test may be easy to compile quick code for :-)
