noinline

A recent talk with a friend made┬áme realize that the following declspec is not very well known. It’s used to avoid inlining a function (the opposite of what we’re usually looking for, which probably explains why it might have remained obscure for a lot of us).

With VC++:

__declspec(noinline)

With gcc:

__attribute__ ((noinline))

It’s very useful for example with templated arrays, to make sure things like the resize functions are never inlined.

    This is of course assuming you know better than the compiler… :-)
