It would certainly be possible to teach ccache about this, but my current feeling is that the cost of implementing it (both in terms of developer time and increased code complexity) may not be worth the potential gain. Not much of ccache's source code can be reused for such functionality. I also suspect that the cache hit/miss ratio for the linking step generally will be low since the linker output changes whenever any source code of the entire program/library has changed. I'm not totally against the idea, though, but I'm personally not interested in investating it further for the moment. But if you or anybody else are willing to prototype it, be my guest. :-) -- Joel _______________________________________________ ccache mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.samba.org/mailman/listinfo/ccache
