Open source application tuning

My group has started a page on the Sun wiki detailing the steps necessary to compile and build a number of open source applications. The page also contains links to useful destinations in the compiler documentation. Feel free to suggest ideas for applications that we should cover there - I can't guaranty that we'll manage to look at them, but I'd love to know what's important to you!

Hello,

nice wiki. I had a look at the page on optimizing the code layout, and noticed some differences with what the cc and CC man pages say. First it is sparc-only. Then, the man page says it needs to be used also at compile time and not only at link time.

Thanks, Marc. Yes -xlinkopt needs to be specified on both the compile and link lines (http://docs.sun.com/source/817-0924/cc_ops.app.html#30890). Unfortunately, link-time optimisation is SPARC only.
