Just something I have been unable to find on google, and the like.
Is there speed improvements with /OPT:WIN98 on windows XP?
"WIN98 and NOWIN98 control the section alignment in the final image. For Windows 98 applications, it is optimal to align sections on a 4K boundary to improve load time (allows Windows 98 memory manager to cache executable images with a minimum of wasted space). This is on by default in the linker, so you need to specify /OPT:NOWIN98 to get a trimmed-down (but slower on Windows 98) version of the application."
Now if I set my program's DLL to link with that, how much faster will it run, compared to something that has the option set as no?
Are there any benchmarks that I can look at?
