Chapter 15. Optimizing Routines

Chapter 15. Optimizing Routines

If you have been programming professionally using C or C++, you probably picked up this book to learn assembly language to help optimize your applications. Now that you are familiar with assembly language, you are ready to start analyzing your applications and putting your assembly language knowledge to use.

However, just writing functions in assembly language code instead of C or C++ does not necessarily make them perform better. Remember, the GNU compiler already converts all of your high-level language code to assembly language, so writing a function in assembly language just means that you did it instead of the compiler.
