I'm looking for general suggestions on how to make a program run faster. The program I am working on right now takes way too long (~6 days) and I need to figure out how to improve that, but I've never done this before.
I have a 1.5 GHz machine with 512MB RAM and 80GB disk space. I realize that specific solutions will be impossible to provide but any suggestions on where I should start would be appreciated!
