- Subject: Distributed Compilation
Have you folks seen/tried this...
"distcc is a program to distribute compilation of
C or C++ code across several machines on a network.
distcc should always generate the same results as a
local compile, is simple to install and use, and is
often two or more times faster than a local compile.
distcc does not require all machines to share a
filesystem, have synchronized clocks, or to have the
same libraries or header files installed. Machines
can be running different operating systems, as long
as they have compatible binary formats or
It even works (according to the docs) with ccache,
so it shouldn't recompile anything it doesn't need
Apparently it also compiles OOTB for cygwin, so if
no-one beats me to this I'll try and package it up
in the next few weeks.
