Re: [PATCH, middle-end] Switch initializations conversion (take four)

So far I have only managed to find out how many and what switches get
converted during GCC bootstrap (this time all languages including ADA)
on i386 Linux. 177 conversions take place (59 twice and 1 once during
the whole process). The exact switches as reported by EXPR_LOCATION
are listed in http://misc.jamborm.net/cswtch.log

That's good data, thanks. Does it make the resulting binary a bit smaller? If so, how much?


In summer I  was not able to measure  any compilation/runtime slowdown
that could not  be accounted for the noise.  I do  not expect this has
changed either.   However, I will re-measure  that too so  that I have
the numbers.

Yes, please report on that; if the number is in the noise, that's fine. I'm not trying to make a lot of work for you; I just think that a little quantitative data is useful.


Thanks,
