Avoiding Mixed Data Type Arithmetic Expressions

Avoid mixing integer and floating-point (REAL) data in the same computation. Expressing all numbers in a floating-point arithmetic expression (assignment statement) as floating-point values eliminates the need to convert data between fixed and floating-point formats. Expressing all numbers in an integer arithmetic expression as integer values also achieves this. This improves run-time performance.

Creating Static Libraries

Executables generated using static libraries are no different than executables generated from individual source or object files. Because static libraries are not required at runtime, you do not need to include them when you distribute your executable. Linking to a static library is generally faster than linking to individual object files.
