as you probably know, there are several containers patches dealing with
performance, separate testsuite and benchmarking.
Specifically, I mean tickets
I have all of them in the following repository
There are no user-visible changes, just performance and the split
There were no comments in some time, so I would like to push them to
There is just the code-bloat issue to solve. The excessive use of INLINE
pragma causes a large code bloat. I am aware of it, it happened even
when I was benchmarking the containers.
Personally I vote for:
- changing INLINE to INLINABLE
- leave INLINE just in
- member/lookup functions
- insert* functions
as these benefit from specialization a lot and do not cause such
a bloat (measured during the internship, do not recall the numbers
I suspect the performance to drop a bit, but I think it is better to
have a bit slower containers without such a code bloat.
Simon, I will be flying to IFCP soon, but if you want, I can prepare the
INLINE->INLINABLE patches and put them in the repo.
