I have played around a bit with comparing various compilers available to ARCH
First off, I have been running the Free compilers for 64-bit:
- I will also add ICC and make an AUR for open64 and LCC (builds fail atm)
- 32bit tests, include SolarisStudio and openWatcom
The weird thing about these results is that it seems like TCC is beating all of the other compilers handsomely (I would have expected GCC to be the performance choice) and also PCC gives surprisingly good results.
and did not add any extra flags (planning on trying -x c for PCC for GCC compatibility mode)
I had to manually edit the xml file to set the compiler info for system-info correctly for each set up in the comparison (I noticed that too late, hence the "spamming" of global.phoronix.com)
Is there something I have done wrong or are these results for real???
