 Yet another VC 5.0 bug?

Is it just me, or do other people see the MSVC 5.0 IDE eat up alot of
processor time.  It is so bad for me that I cannot retrieve internet mail
and run the IDE at the same time.  If I close the IDE everything is fine.
Just curious.....

Warren,  try this for your linker sluggish behavior (if you haven't
already).  I know it help my on my system

Here's a copy of a post made by Mark Hagen in the vc.utilities area:

"Hey folks,

  I have a quick tip for those of you who might be
experiencing slow link times using Visual C++ 5.0.
The readme files for Visual C++ mention two new
linker options called /OPT:icf and /OPT:noicf.  
The 'icf' part stands for "identical COMDAT folding"
and it's a form of linker optimization.  This COMDAT
optimization however is a lengthy process, and with
a large application it can slow things down.  To try
and get around the performance problem with the
linker, add the /OPT:noicf option to your linker

  I would like to hear from people who are experiencing
this problem.  If you could reply back to this thread
and let me know:

1) How big the application is that you're trying to build
2) How long the link takes with the /OPT:noicf option
3) How long it takes without it

I can't guarantee that I'll reply to anyone posting a
reply to this message, so I will thank you in advance
for helping us make a better development product.
