Hi Noel,

I'd suggest: CompilerNameAndVersion-OS-[Hardware, if relevant],
eventually followed by the company name. Examples:

Intel 9.1 - Mac OS X - x86 (Sandia)
gcc 4.0.1 - Mac OS X - x86 (Sandia)

gcc 4.2.1 - HP UX - ia64 (HP)

Gulp. Isn't that gcc 4.0.1? (Note that I'm talking about the Intel
compiler, not Intel CPU).

However you suddenly made me realize that I'm worrying about a
compiler not tested for release. I'll simply ignore it, especially
since a) they have regressions on code which is so simple as to
compile and work with VC6 b) they use an EDG front-end and manage
always to screw it up in the most creative ways (which really requires
some art); so, they don't deserve any support as far as I'm concerned.
