I am already impressed with its reported build speed, though I am curious at just how much of a difference the optimisation steps in gcc actually make.
I would test myself, but most of the things I build are for ARM, hence my asking you to try some tests since you are using it :)

i've been re-running my (admittedly simple tests) throughout the day, and the numbers i'm seeing are that gcc sometimes performs about 20% better, but not consistently (sometimes just a few ticks faster). But my app is short-running and i/o bound, so it's not a truly representative test. What i love the most is the ability to create executable C code. i have gotten in the habit of creating "amalgamation builds" of my libs, where all the needed sources are in 1 .h and 1 .c (i got the idea from sqlite3). These are very useful in conjunction with tcc, as demonstrated here:

(in fact, there's a whole section about tcc there)



...and so on...

Happy Hacking!
