Why use it/advantages?
Fun bits in clang
Remaining GNU toolchain bits, and what`s being done about them
Demo of Clang on FreeBSD, and some of its neat features
ADAM has been using Unix systems since early childhood (truth be told he
can hardly remember using anything but). He messed with Rogue and Larn
and even a C program or two on old SunOS 4 and 4.4BSD based systems at
his dad`s office in the early 1990s. Shortly after the Y2K problem, the
Linux User Group at Case Western Reserve University (where nobody
actually seemed to run Linux!) first exposed him to FreeBSD. He now
tinkers with a lot of different bits of FreeBSD, but he vacillates
between being too lazy and too obstreperous in his insistence on C++ to
get a commit bit. He still jests that he`s really a Computer Physicist,
despite abandoning Physics for Computer Science in 2003. He`s always
been easy to spot at conferences -- find the guy with the unique hat.
(It`s different every few years.)
He worked in Erez Zadok`s FileSystem and Storage Laboratory at SUNY
Stony Brook, mostly writing code for linux, but he did take on a Google
Summer of Code project for FreeBSD with the Lab. Currently he works for
FalconStor Software, Inc. writing Deduplication engines for Linux
platforms. Somehow he always seems to wind up writing more code for
Linux than FreeBSD systems. His specialties are Computer Science, and
Applied Mathematics & Statistics. Some penguins may have been harmed in
the writing of this bio.
