What is your use case?
You can install binutils bundle with swupd command.
$ sudo swupd bundle-add binutils
Also you can install gdb bundle, but maybe you use case is to develop C
programs, then you need to install c-basic bundle which has all you
to start your development.
$ sudo swupd bundle-add c-basic
I have quit working full-time.
I intend to spend time building a high-performance, high-precision,
error-free, library for numerical computing specifically targeting the
Intel processors with AVX-512 (with SIMD) and above.
I intend to write the entire library, including the base digital
arithmetic routines (using the SoftPosit approach) in x64 assembler.
I was dilly-dallying between using NASM and GNU "as", especially due to
NASM mnemonics being quite similar to Intel's, but realised that Intel
itself supports GNU "as" and NASM doesn't come anywhere close to
supporting the latest and greatest innovations from Intel.
I would also like to know if there's anyone at Intel I could write to
regarding requesting an account on a machine with the latest Intel
processors running Clear Linux OS, that way I can avoid spending money
on purchasing newer hardware every 3 years.
