Just for fun I tried compiling some kernels with "ccache".
It cuts the time it takes to compile LINT in half. And that is on a dual-athlon-1800 system with 2GB RAM and 15kRPM scsi disks, slower systems will see larger improvements. There about 100 files overlab between kernels, probably mostly stuff in libkern. Conclusion: Most people can probably benefit from using ccache. It's actually a pretty neat idea, which (despite what O'brien will yell at me) I would suggest should be put in the compiler itself. -- Poul-Henning Kamp | UNIX since Zilog Zeus 3.20 [EMAIL PROTECTED] | TCP/IP since RFC 956 FreeBSD committer | BSD since 4.3-tahoe Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
