Raleigh, NC - September 17, 2003: Dignus, LLC announces delivery of Systems/C 1.70 and Systems/C++ 1.70

Continuing to build on our excellent language offerings, Dignus announces the delivery of Version 1.70 of Systems/C and Systems/C++.

The Systems/C and Systems/C++ PLINK utility has been totally rewritten, to meet the demand of more modern Systems/C and Systems/C++ programs. In particular, this version of PLINK supports "weak" definitions, allowing for automatic instantiation of C++ templates without the need for cumbersome build machinations or bloated load modules. This new version of PLINK can also function as a replacement for the IBM pre-linker. IBM compatible objects, generated by Systems/C and Systems/C++, can now be pre-linked on cross-platform hosts, greatly improving the build management process.

Version 1.70 of the Systems/C C runtime also now includes ASCII/EBCDIC translation routines which aid in interoperability with ASCII systems.

Systems/C has been enhanced to provide language features compatible with SAS/C(tm), easing the transition from a SAS/C programming environment to a Systems/C programming environment.

Systems/C++ and Systems/C have also been enhanced to provide even greater control over the generated assembly source, listing options, and improved code generation.

Important features of this delivery include:
