Re: reduce compilation times?

Without turning this into (too much of) a language war. No, because I write maintainable easy to read C programs (which through structs get the benefits of anonymous implementations of interfaces).

I understand it, but GCC compiler doesn't understand the "refactoring" meaning.
GCC only understands the difference between splittled and non-splitted files,
and how to affect him in terms of compile-time and optimization-gainining.
And I'm saying that profiling and careful limited use of macros and static inlined functions will get you the same performance without all the mess.

I say this as the author of competitive cryptographic and mathematical libraries (the latter of which holds the rank as worlds fastest public domain crypto math library).
