The First Rule about Optimization Club....

...Is you don't talk about Optimization.....

[yeah, cheesy, but this is the web.]

I ran across this, an article about code optimization, and I gotta say, it's dead on. I've been burned by bad guesses as to where a program was inefficient, and using a profiler to start with is vital.

I do think that the final steps of optimization need to be weighed against the maintainence load of tighter code, and only done if the program needs the speed.
