ccache for the win
Posted Sun, 27 May 2007
ccache in FreeBSD, when installed from ports, comes with examples on how to get ccache to work with src and ports building.Copy and paste, and you're ready to go. This tool rocks.
dev# ccache -s cache directory /root/.ccache cache hit 7868 cache miss 20433So far so good. Most of the cache misses were from the first buildworld with ccache. This dev box is running in vmware on a very, very cheap Dell workstation, and it's not the fastest thing to run vmware, so any speed boosts will help.
Also, day 5 of the week of unix is coming tomorrow. I'm slowly finishing it.
