#748 closed enhancement (wontfix)

investigate usefulness of providing a compilation mode that disables fixnum overflow detection

Reported by: felix winkelmann Owned by: felix winkelmann
Priority: not urgent at all Milestone:
Component: compiler Version: 4.7.x
Keywords: fixnum overflow Cc:
Estimated difficulty:


This would mean alternative specialization rules which might increase performance somewhat. Currently types.db can not contain sets of alternative specializations, we would need something like cond-expand for entries in the type database.

Such a mode could be enabled by a declaration and/or a compiler option.
