best compiler for fet?
« on: January 06, 2018, 07:58:43 AM »
I already know that the latest gcc under linux is much faster than the MinGW compiler under windows.
I wonder now if the Microsoft compiler will be faster. Maybe i misunderstood, but it look like it is free for open source projects to use "Visual Studio Community 2017"-Edition. I tried, but i failed to compile FET. Someone who can give me a small hint how to compile fet with msvs?
By the way: Dear Mac users with an parallel windows system on the hard disk: Maybe you can check if clang (under MacOS) or minGW (precompiled Windows version) is faster? Just use the same FET version, same example file and same seed to compare the speed. Please check if the generated timetable is the same (and/or if the seed is the same at the end).
