Nonportable code

If you have to write nonportable code, take the following steps (a Taligent engineer must first clear it with an architect):

  1. Clearly mark the code with a comment indicating it is nonportable.
        //??? NOT PORTABLE
    It is then easy to find such constructs with a global search.
  2. Identify the environment for which the code is specific.
NOTE Contact Taligent for detailed guidelines.

  1. Include the name of the processor family somewhere in the filename, such as FooClassRS6000.C, if the entire file is processor dependent.
