I am compiling a large ActionScript project on Win7, and the compilation is slow. Looking at the resource monitor during the compilation, both CPU cores are at about 70%, there's 1GB free RAM, and there's very little disk activity.
What is the bottleneck then for mxmlc? Is it perhaps the speed of memory access?
I wanted to speed up the process by upgrading from Core 2 to Core i7, and increasing the number of cores to 4, but seeing how the CPU utilization is only 70%, I am not sure this would help at all?
