Abstract
If transactional memory is to become a mature technology, TM re- search groups must be able to run each other’s code and to perform apples-to-apples comparisons of implementation alternatives. For C++ on the x86, significant steps in this direction have been made by compilers from Intel, the University of Dresden, and the GNU Project, which aim to accept the same language API and target the same runtime ABI. Unfortunately, these three compilers currently connect to only two main STM libraries....
