Common Functions That IL2CPP Slows Down

Tags: , , ,

IL2CPP can really slow our code down sometimes, and not just for esoteric features. Calling common math and string functions can be dramatically slower in IL2CPP. Today’s article shows you how you can work around this to speed them back up.

For example, a new C++ or Java programmer may use templates or generics even for classes where only one data type will likely ever be used. I don’t know why programmers do this and I won’t attempt to tackle such a topic. Instead, I’ll do a test to show why this is a bad idea from a performance perspective.
