Re: Faster compilation speed [zone allocation]


<        Because the problem is not the garbage collection, its the

underlying improvement, not a fix unto itself.

But removing garbage collection entirely certainly gives some information.
Another way of examining is to compile on a machine with a large level 2
cache, and watch the compilation time vs size of thing being compiled.
