Could you guys take the "which compiler is faster" holy wars over to
comp.lang.c or e-mail please? Considering you're babbling your heads off
about Watcom this, Borland that, Microsoft Visual C++ the other, and nary
a word about DJGPP, I'd wager good money everyone not actually wading into
this thread shares the opinion you guys are spamming the group.



ObDJGPP: I've never had compile times longer than ten minutes with DJGPP
on a crufty old 486-50. And it has as good code optimization as I've ever
seen... it's said to be faster than Watcom, but the big compiler companies
don't want you to know this so they likely pay the computer magazines and
newsletters good money not to publish any stats on DJGPP in their compiler
comparisons!
