March 2012 Developer's Poll

Post by Damon »

It is well known that the C++ compiler in C++Builder does not generate fast code. For example, compared to Visual Studio or g++, some of my image-processing algorithms take twice as long to complete (or more) when compiled in C++Builder. The same exact code.

So, for me, there are many parts of my code that I need to compile using a different compiler, and then relay the results back to C++Builder. Of course, the RAD capabilities of C++Builder make up for this deficiency, but I really wish the C++ team would begin to focus on speed.

Anyone else have speed issues, or is it fast-enough for your app?

Thanks in advance for your votes!

Most of my apps are DB driven so they are more dependent on the speed of the DB, network latency, and server speed than the speed of the compiled code. I voted "yes."
