I have to compare the performance of two compilers for a given
Things that I can think of are to check the time required by both the
compilers to compile the application, size of the output file
Can anybody please suggest other parameters that I should consider and
how can I measure them?
I have to also check the given application with various optimization
options. How do I check which compiler has done better optimization?
Any help would be appreciated.
["Compare two compilers" is a uselessly vague assignment. You, or more
likely the person who assigned you the job, need to decide what you care
about. Quality of documentation? Responsiveness of the vendor to bug
reports? Flexibility of debug features? Correctness of object code?
Size of object code? Size of executable with libraries? Something else?
