I am not sure whether this is the right forum but i am relating to the Intel Composer product.
I was wondering whether there is a tool or a method of inspecting a binary file to find out what the availible SSE code path are?
As i discovered in a couple of documentations one can compile a file with "/QaxSSE4.2,SSE4.1,SSSE3,SSE3,SSE2 /arch:IA32". This is supposed to include every single specified optimization to the binary in case it has any effect.
The big question for me right now is, to find out whether it is even usefull to compile for every possible SSE level. (in terms of filesize/overhead or other penalties)
And how to find out which of the SSE code path actually made it into the binary file.
