Added MMX Extensions
New Intel MMX instructions now supported by the inline assembler.
Added Support for Alternative Names
With -A and the C++ compiler, the alternative representations in the standard 2.9 are now supported. In the future, they will become the default, so don't use the following names otherwise: and and_eq bitand bitor compl not not_eq or or_eq xor xor_eq
Added -B[e|f|g|j] switches
See "Definitive list of SC switches" for how they work. The SCMSGS environment variable and SC.INI setting is no longer supported.
Added #elseif directive, with same semantics as #elif.
Changed overload resolution rules to reflect ANSI C++ standard changes regarding integral promotions vs integral conversions.
Added namespaces
Added -g5 switch
See "Definitive list of SC switches".
Added #pragma setlocale("locale")
See "Pragmas supported by SC/SC++".
Added _CPPRTTI and _CPPUNWIND predefined macros
See "Predefined macros".
Added New Keywords
explicit, mutable, typename - but the semantics of them aren't implemented.
Added __unaligned Keyword
For unaligned pointer support for PowerPC. Ignored for Intel compiler.
Added Pentium Pro Instructions to Inline Assembler and OBJ2ASM.
Added new P6 instructions: CMOVcc FCMOVcc FCOMI FCOMIP FUCOMI FUCOMIP RDMPC
Added -ND switch
See "DEFINITIVE LIST OF SC SWITCHES", and _MT and _DLL in "PREDEFINED MACROS".
-NLlibfile
Added this switch. See "DEFINITIVE LIST OF SC SWITCHES".
__wacrtused
