Improving Program Performance

You can improve the performance of C++ functions by writing those functions in a manner that helps the compiler do a better job of optimizing them. Many books have been written on software performance in general and C++ in particular, and this chapter does not repeat such valuable information, but discusses only those performance techniques that strongly affect the C++ compiler.
