runacovea(1) analysis of compiler options via evolutionary algorithms


runacovea [options]


The runacovea command runs ACOVEA (Analysis of Compiler Options via Evolutionary Algorithm) implements a genetic algorithm to find the "best" options for compiling programs with the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) C and C++ compilers. "Best," in this context, is defined as those options that produce the fastest executable program from a given source code.

Acovea is a C++ framework that can be extended to test other programming languages and non-GCC compilers.

This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has documentation in HTML format; see the files in /usr/share/doc/acovea/html.


Program options are documented in the HTML pages.
