Speed is a very good thing.

I'd appreciate your sending them to me.

My primary interest is driving the Microsoft Visual C++ compiler on Win32.

I'd appreciate your thoughts on compile speed minimization.  If compilation
is processor-bound and you aren't on a multiprocessor system, I wouldn't
think that multiple threads would gain you any performance.  Though a
thread-per-processor would probably be appropriate.

Definitely, I would think that you would want to minimize the number of
processes created (that is not exec a new process for each .c[pp] file) and
minimize the number times CL.EXE is loaded.

Would the same optimizations be appropriate for gcc or other C++ compilers,
other platforms?

Any thoughts on dependency checking?
