NewsRethinking optimization for size PinstaffTerrence Dorsey19-Feb-13 12:36 
Contemporary compilers are capable of performing a wide variety of optimizations on the code they produce. Quite a bit of effort goes into these optimization passes, with different compiler projects competing to produce the best results for common code patterns. But the nature of current hardware is such that some optimizations can have surprising results.... GCC provides an optimization option (-Os) with a different objective: it instructs the compiler to produce more compact code, even if there is some resulting performance cost. Such an option has obvious value if one is compiling for a space-constrained environment like a small device. But it turns out that, in some situations, optimizing for space can also produce faster code.
Is there an optimization for "fix my bugs"?
