dcc32speed 1.2

This tool is superseded by fastdcc that uses the IDE Fix Pack compiler optimizations.

dcc32speed.exe is a little command line tool that starts the actual compiler (dcc32.exe) with some optimizations. This tool especially improves the speed of the detailed map file creation.

How does it work:
The dcc32.exe of Delphi 5 to 7 uses the slow FindFirstFile/FindClose API to retrieve the file date of files. This is very slow and can be replaced by the much faster GetFileAttributesEx.
For Delphi 5 to 2007 the tool replaces the slow stricmp C++ RTL function in the compiler by a 110 times faster version. This change speeds up the map file creation.

dcc32speed.exe starts dcc32.exe and applies the patches in memory (no byte on disk is changed).

Limitations:
Does not work under Windows 95

How to use:
1. Copy the dcc32speed.exe into the $(DELPHI)\Bin directory.
2. Replace “dcc32.exe” calls in your build scripts by “dcc32speed.exe”

Steps to use dcc32speed.exe for msbuild projects
1. Rename the $(BDS)\bin\dcc32.exe to dcc32compiler.exe
2. Rename the $(BDS)\bin\dcc32speed.exe to dcc32.exe

Changelog from 1.1 to 1.2:

  • Fixed external exception 0x80000003
  • The tool can now be renamed to dcc32.exe whereas the compiler must be named dcc32compiler.exe. This allows the usage of dcc32speed.exe in msbuild scripts.
