SQL Engines employ "query rewrite" to effect a more efficient query to supplement user expertise or application knowledge.
Can Mac / Int code generated by Classes be accelerated in a similar way?
Beyond locating inefficient and discouraged code anti-patterns influenced by documented guidance, the idea here is to implement a Mac / Int code rewriter for a FULL "read-ahead" of Mac / Int code base to identify implementation optimizations that can be substituted to accelerate existing int code compiled to obj code.
Speculating some ideas to demonstrate principle:
Replacing once set variable with literal ( as if had been a macro substitution )
In-lining to avoid method call eg: within a loop
Pre-calculate static numeric
Switch to naked-global syntax when useful
Substitute more efficient commands or expressions
Drop unreachable code / code blocks ( when procedure block = 1)
Flatten unnecessary code structure
Internal and private Variable / Method shortened / obfuscated
Assist code automation goals like rewriting for code generator emitted output to be more efficient
Can improve existing code bases by recompilation
Potential smaller code footprint for routine memory cache
Faster code execution
Faster generated code ( code generator methods, DTL , BPL, Rules )
Thank you for submitting the idea. The status has been changed to "Needs review".
