10# If you want both to optimise and debug with the DEC cc

b971f6e4 15# * debugging optimised code, no matter what compiler
8a019ce7
JH
16# one is using, can be surprising and confusing because of
17# the optimisation tricks like code motion, code removal,
18# loop unrolling, and inlining. The source code and the
19# executable code simply do not agree any more while in
20# mid-execution, the optimiser only cares about the results.
21#
b971f6e4 22# * Configure will automatically add the often quoted
f2c69087
JH
23# -DDEBUGGING for you if the -g is specified.
24#
b971f6e4 25# * There is even more optimisation available in the new
f2c69087
JH
26# (GEM) DEC cc: -O5 and -fast. "man cc" will tell more about them.
27# The jury is still out whether either or neither help for Perl
28# and how much. Based on very quick testing, -fast boosts
29# raw data copy by about 5-15% (-fast brings in, among other
30# things, inlined, ahem, fast memcpy()), while on the other
31# hand searching things (index, m//, s///), seems to get slower.
32# Your mileage will vary.

57# the MIPS company, the new compiler is originally from the VAX world
58# and it is called GEM. Many of the options we are going to use depend
