  1. A Word about Modes and Compatibility

    Please note that in the sections about modes, etc., it is the front-end that is being discussed. In cases where the C-generating back end is being used, the C compiler must be able to accept the generated C. First, in most cases, this is not a problem. Second, this is not a statement that Comeau C++ will generate code that won't be handled correctly. However, for instance, if we support long long on a specific platform, it is expected that you are using a C compiler that also supports it. Is such cases, the C compiler used must jive, since it will be you, and not Comeau C++, that will be placing a constraint on it.
