WL#1673: Simple but efficient optimisations in blocks
Status: Assigned — Priority: Medium
Change code like operationRecPtr.p->x = 1; operationRecPtr.p->y = 2; regOpPtr = operationRecPtr.p; regOpPtr->x = 1; regOpPtr->y = 2; Saves a load instruction and about 2-3 cycles for each second occurrence of regOpPtr in the code. Sometimes more if a cache miss occurs. ---- If operationRecPtr is a stack variable instead of a block/global variable the load is also saved. So this accidently hooks up with the goal not to overuse block/blobal variables
