Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Visual Studio take forever to compile

Visual studio take a long time to compile c++ code.

Here's my last compilation :

Added 1 member variable with a getter.

VS output :

Yes, 417 seconds.... ~6 minutes for 1 variable and 1 getter.

Here's my taskmanager while compiling. Proc is not used at all. Task manager

My computer stats :

Proc : Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4210M 2.60GHz

RAM : 8 Go

OS : Windows 64bits

HDD : 7200 tr/min, 6 Gbits/s

What could cause this slow compile time ?
