Compiling programs on Linux with GCC is much faster than most other environments if ccache is enabled. It caches compilation results and returns them if the compiler is provably going to generate the same result.
Anytime you clean out all your object files and start a fresh compile, ccache makes a huge improvement in speed. Also, VisualDSP++ seems to spend a lot of time recompiling the same files for no discernable reason, so it would speed up that process immensely too.
Has anyone been able to use ccache with VisualDSP++?
Before I look into it, does anyone know if it is possible or impossible?
