To bring things back on topic. The programs I am porting from Solaris
to Linux and Windows need to run on a variety of hardware. Without
using -march and creating different libraries and binaries for each
piece of hardware, what would a good set of compiler options be?
You said that combining -march=i686 and -msse2 didn't make too much
So without setting -march, what all should I be setting?
On my laptop with CPU-Z I see MMX, SSE, and SSE2.
On my Opteron Linux box I obviously see a lot more when I cat
If I just use what is common between them, -mmmx, -msse, and -msse2 I
should be free of floating point errors and hopefully get some
performance increase. Should I be using -mmmx if I'm also using -msse
I am comfortable locking out users without sse and sse2 since most of
our users are using computers that are no more than 2 or 3 years old.
Again, thanks a lot for your help.
