Post by andrew »

For users of the XTA Tool, do you have any ideas for future improvements.

It would be nice if you could choose to skip some parts before entering the analasis.

If you have a program using math.h stdio.h and so on, the program will be a large, and the XTA will eat memory and take a lot of time. But my intrest is to look at the "90%" in the code, meaning analysing the time in smaller loops which are computed 90% of the CPU-time. Right now I disable the other "10% CPU time" code and compile before XTA analasis, thereafter I change back the code and recompile to test it live. ... if its not already a solution for it...
Probably not the most confused programmer anymore on the XCORE forum.

On a per-installation (not per analysis, or per run) basis, cache functions that have already been analysed, so that they do not need to be analysed again. You might already do this I guess... just a thought.
