Acovea implements a genetic algorithm for finding the best options for compiling programs with the GCC C and C++ compilers. Best, in this context, is defined as those options that produce the fastest executable program from a given source code. The framework can be extended to other programming languages and non-GCC compilers. It is also useful for testing combinations of flags for pessimistic interactions, and for testing the reliability of the compiler.
