Our project just takes too long to compile. It’s only a few hundred thousand lines of code, but it compiles like there are millions.
I’ve spent most of last night and today reorganizing header files and project files and turning our primary include file set into a single, precompilable header.
Visual Studio, dramatic effect: just over 2 minutes 27 seconds off the time to build the entire project while also adding our network API to the build! Xcode seems about the same or slower (I’ll benchmark that next week) and I got tired of wrestling with autoconf/automake under Linux for the host.
