SubjectRE: GCC 2.95, 2.96 and 3.0 on linear algebra (was RE: 2 GB file limitation)
Date
The Atlas main page is on SourceForge at

http://math-atlas.sourceforge.net/

The Atlas performance list archive is at

http://www.geocrawler.com/lists/3/SourceForge/15666/0/

and the main Atlas developer list archive is at

http://www.geocrawler.com/lists/3/SourceForge/15667/0/

I haven't seen any Sparc data; I have an Athlon at home and Pentia and
Alphas at work, so if Sparc results went by me I ignored them.

Q: How do you tell when a pineapple is ready to eat?
