Inlining failed, large function growth limit reached
Posted on 2010-09-14
Our build is getting a warning about inlining failing due to a large function growth limit being reached (gcc compiler). The code causing the warning is a auto generated framework for our industry (so it's probably not going to be changed). Anyway, i was hoping that someone could provide insight on the implications of this warning even if we can't change the code...
(1) what specificly does the warning mean?
(2) can I assume that the result of the inlining failing is simply that the function is defined as a standard function rather than inlined (i.e. placed throughout the code in full code form)?
Thanks in advance,
