While I haven't done it specifically for C++ compilers, I've found that you
can get access to commercial software for legitimate testing purposes by
asking the right people for it. The disconnect comes when the people
responsible for selling the software aren't closely affiliated with the
people developing the software, which tends to happen at larger companies.

I believe the Intel compiler is free for non-commercial use. Check out <>
for more details.
