I stumbled across compilercache at http://www.erikyyy.de/compilercache/
and thought I would share it in the hope that some folk might find it useful.
I found no prior mention of it on this mailing list.
The description at sourceforge is as follows
Compilercache is a wrapperscript around your C and C++ compilers. Results
from compilations are put into a cache. And once you compile the same thing
again, the result will be picked from the cache instead of being recompiled
Both flex and md5sum are needed for it to work/install.
It also depends on bash.
I tried it on cygwin and it seems to work.
(Although some of the instructions might need tweaking as
the version number was upped but the instructions weren't)
Its usefulness would be in direct proportion to how large and
time-consuming your compiles may be. If you are short on disk
space to begin with, you might want to skip it.
