Code/compiler problems and how to reach an improvement

I will present the results of some recent investigations with the LHC 
experiments code: compilation speed, program size and performance. The 
use (or abuse) of templated code and the fact that STL is only inlined 
code has some serious consequences. Other sources of inefficiencies at
execution time are also presented.
