Lately I've been working on mastering (or improving) my compiling skills with simple sources.
I've been playing around with sources of Ilia Muraviev's programs since they are quite easy to compile and don't require any modification/cleaning of the code to compile successfully.
Attached are sources and my compiles for LZPXJ 1.2h, PX 1.0, and QUAD 1.12.
I wanted to get some feedback and to see if anyone else could compile even faster binaries. And if so, then I have more to learn. The idea is to compile faster Win32 executables.
Here are my quick results for compression only with timer 3.01 for ENWIK8:
ILIA | 26.536s
COMP1 | 23.151s
SPEEDUP | 12.76%
ILIA | 51.246s
COMP1 | 42.339s
SPEEDUP | 17.38%
Curious to see how much faster we can go from the expert compilers!
ILIA | 16.084s
COMP1 | 13.790s
SPEEDUP | 14.26%
