very large memory usage when compiling with optimizations
Binary package hint: gcc-4.2
release of Ubuntu:
version of the package:
Compiling the source file which (hopefully) will attach to this report uses a large amount of memory with this version of gcc, whereas this did not use to be the case. "large amount" is roughly a gigabyte. Previously it used about 100 megabytes. This only happens when -O1 or higher is specified for compilation.
