Does anybody use it? The
-F1 switch, that is.
This tells Inform to use temporary files (Inftemp1.tmp, Inftemp2.tmp) for storage while compiling, rather than stashing all data in RAM. This reduces the RAM usage of the compiler, at the cost of some speed.
This would only be important when compiling on really old machines. So this may be a question for only @KrocCamen .
(For comparison: when compiling a one-room z5 game with the 6/11 library, Inform allocates 851kb of memory normally; 785kb with the
If nobody is using this switch, it would simplify the compiler quite a bit to get rid of it.
