The C++ Performance TR is a Technical Report issued by the C++ Standards committee detailing various factors that affect the performance of a program written in C++.
This includes information on various strategies of implementing aspects of the language, along with their consequences for executable size and timing, as well as suggestions on how to write efficient code. It also includes information on use of C++ in embedded systems, including a discussion of putting constant data in ROM and direct access to hardware registers.
Whether you're a compiler writer, library writer or application developer, this is well worth a look. Download a copy from the ISO website today.
