While this is VERY fast, it does take time. The gcc compiler, while producing high quality and lightning-fast executables, must spend extra time to accomplish this (i.e. dead code strip and code optimization are NOT in the FB compiler). Obviously, the RUN environment used in FB will need to compile non- optimized to make the interactive testing turnaround time shorter. The FBtoC team is aware of these and other issues. When there is more information to share it will be posted. Brian S.
