I am currently running some C++ code in Windows. I am using Code::Blocks with mingw therefore using the gcc compiler. Can anyone tell me, is thespeed of execution of the final .exe file dependant on the compiler? e.g. will the speed change if I use Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition to compile my code?
And if it does change, which will give a faster execution speed?
Also, will the execution speen change if I compile the code in Linux instead of Windows.
Thanks in advance.
