Description Vince 2010-12-08 14:24:53 UTC
For code coverage (gcov) to work, I need to compile with the following compiler switches -fprofile-arcs and -ftest-coverage (or --coverage).
Comment 1 Joel Rosdahl 2010-12-11 03:51:11 UTC
Do you mean that ccache fails with these options (i.e. a bug) or that it just gives no speedup (i.e. a missing feature)?
Comment 2 Joel Rosdahl 2011-01-03 14:08:20 UTC
Since ccache 3.0 correctly handles the mentioned flags (though without any speed up), I'm closing the bug.

Please reopen the bug if it was meant as a feature request to get ccache to speed up builds with the flags.

Sorry, but... can I ask why?
