ACOVEA (Analysis of Compiler Optimizations via an Evolutionary Algorithm) implements a genetic algorithm to find the "best" options for compiling programs with the GCC C and C++ compilers. "Best" is defined as those options that produce the fastest executable program from a given source code. Acovea can also be extended to test other programming languages and non-GCC compilers.
