My program is almost done but it is very slow. I wrote it in C++ . I am new at this and this is the biggest program I've ever written. I probably wrote some things the long way. I heard that writing code in assembly language speeds a program up tremendously. Is this true? Would it be as simple as disassembling my program and then compiling it with the assembly code ? I'm just looking for a simple method right now rather than digging into my code. Also, I didn't use any classes since I'm not good with them yet. I also didn't use very many functions. Would using either one of these speed it up? I need to cut some major time off of my program.
Also, my program is currently doing 1.19 x 10^56 loops. As I write more code that will increase and it is already too slow. I have a 2 ghz computer with 630 mb ram.
Actually, this is my first real C++ program so go easy on me.
