Hi all!
Please, tell me if it is better to align each function to 16 bytes boundary or any other value? Or it's just don't matter? Will it increase speed? As for code size - it is )))
Thanks.

Usually for code it's not important ,i always align function to 16,
but for data it's very important for speed up memory or cache access Smile

Agree with you, DJ Mauretto, conserning data alignment. But in case of functions... In case of object-oriented programming, for example, where is enough classes and a lot of functions - alignment can be noticeable for code size, imho.
