Niall’s virtual diary archives – Saturday 11th January 2014

Saturday 11th January 2014: 5.37pm. After another day spent optimising proposed Boost.AFIO's build infrastructure and patching in precompiled headers support, I now have total rebuild time including all unit tests and code examples on my Intel Atom 220 down to 5 minutes 8 seconds. That's down from somewhere north of 40 minutes originally, which makes for an eightfold improvement in build times.

It's quite amazing how lazy modern CPUs make us actually. I had had no problem with the old highly inefficient build system at all until I tried it with this netbook. I'm kinda hoping total rebuild time on my i7-3770K once it returns to me from Canada will be in the single digit seconds range, but somehow I doubt it ...
