Having lurked for a while, I realize that not all compilers produce assembler
code as an intermediate step. Some directly produce an object file. But for
those that produce assembler as an intermediate, what is the best way to run
the compiler and assembler on different machines - while keeping the overall
Also, the GNU compiler supports piping preprocessed source into the compiler
via stdin - avoiding having to produce an entire temp file before beginning
the compile. Similarly, the compiler output goes to stdout, and can be piped
directly to the assembler. How should this be supported in distcc?
Perhaps distcc could recognize the -pipe option to enable these features.
