Re: Static libraries in development packages
Nobody thought to mention that static linking can dramatically increase
or to put it the other way around, dynamic linking can incur serious
I don't want to encourage everyone to start static linking everywhere
just to get a
few percentage points in efficiency, obviously your mileage may vary,
my treedb project got 100 times faster and meta-treedb got at least 20
through static linking on x86_64.
You can get these from SourceForge.
These do little more than function calls and memory access through
so maybe they're unusual in this respect.
I've yet to upload the versions (including v3c) that build static
libraries and the
static tests, but I thought it was worth mentioning.
