A while back, there were some discussion about SDCC being slow and about it
leaving temp files. Well, I just upgraded my PC from Win98SE to WinXP and
things definitely improved:
1 - compilation speed is fantastic now. It used to take about 70 secods to
compile all of my .c files and link them into the final program. After
moving to XP, the compile takes less than 6 seconds. At first, I thought
maybe something broke after the move to XP, but I've checked, and things are
2 - temporary files no longer litter the drive root (c:\) anymore. Under
Win98SE, there used to be a bunch of temporary files that would be created
but never removed. This no longer happens under XP.
As has been mentioned in the past, Cygwin under NT (NT4,2000,XP) runs much
better than under WinDos (Win98). I didn't mind either of the "problems"
in the past because I was already productive with SDCC. But, now, it's even
more of a pleasure to use SDCC.
