A short tale of how horrible code yields clean performance.
We investigate memory loads and stores that the compiler inserts for us without our knowledge: “the compiler’s secret life”. We show that these loads and stores, although necessary for the compiler are not necessary for the correct functioning of our program. And finally, we explain how you can improve the performance of your program by removing them.
We introduce compiler optimization report, a useful tool if you wish to speed up your program by looking at what the compiler failed to optimize.
We try to answer two questions related to compiler optimizations: how can you help the compiler do a better job and when does it make sense to do the compiler optimizations manually.
We investigate what are the techniques your compiler employs to make your loop run faster.
In this post we talk about how to write code that is both flexible and fast!
Function calls are not cheap operations and for time critical code it is better to avoid them. This article explores techniques you can use to avoid function calls thus speeding up your code.
