Ever watch a movie on TV only to have something interupt it? And you’re like “doh, what happens next?” That’s what reading this article from ars technica is like. It just whets your appetite and then leaves you hanging.
The author starts talking about the task IBM has of creating a compiler for the cell processor. And… well that’s where it ends. But he does call the compiler the octopiler, which I thought was funny, because there are 8 SPE’s in the cell processor.
So, well, no news really. But I’m a programmer, so I thought it was quite a tease that I’d share with all you technical folks out there.
