inline-max-total-size, Qinline-max-total-size

Specifies how much larger a routine can normally grow when inline expansion is performed.

Syntax

Linux and macOS:
-inline-max-total-size
=
n
-no-inline-max-total-size
Windows:
/Qinline-max-total-size
=
n
/Qinline-max-total-size-
Arguments
n
Is a positive integer that specifies the permitted increase in the routine's size when inline expansion is performed.
Default
-no-inline-max-total-size
or
/Qinline-max-total-size-
The compiler uses default heuristics for inline routine expansion.
Description
This option specifies how much larger a routine can normally grow when inline expansion is performed. It limits the potential size of the routine. For example, if 2000 is specified for
n
, the size of any routine will normally not increase by more than 2000.
If you specify
-no-inline-max-total-size
(Linux* and
macOS*
) or
/Qinline-max-total-size-
(Windows*), there is no limit to the size a routine may grow when inline expansion is performed.
To see compiler values for important inlining limits, specify option
[q or Q]opt-report
.
When you use this option to increase the default limit, the compiler may do so much additional inlining that it runs out of memory and terminates with an "out of memory" message.
Alternate Options
None

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors.
