I can't believe i've never heard of these tiiks before, sounds cool if you are a c++ builder developer.  It's donationware.

Bcc32Pch C++Builder IDE Plugin Version 2.7
A plugin for C++Builder 5/6 and BDS 2006. It replaces the IDE compiler by the commandline tools and improves the compilation speed.
bcc32pch 2.7 is not released yet, but the Release Candidate 2 can be downloaded.

bcc32pch only speeds up the compiler. If you want to speed up the load-time of the IDE and the general speed of the IDE, you could install DelphiSpeedUp that also works for BCB and BDS.

Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista
An installed and already executed Borland C++ Builder 5/6 or Borland Developer Studio 2006 or Turbo C++ Pro 2006

DelphiSpeedUp Delphi/BCB/BDS IDE plugin Version 2.2

A plugin for Delphi/C++Builder 5/6/7/2005, BDS 2006 and Turbo Delphi/C++/C# Professional. It speeds up the time to load the IDE and it also improves the whole speed of the IDE. This is achieved by replacing some often used RTL functions by FastCode function that are optimized for the used CPU. It also adds some caches for function that work on filenames like ExpandFileName().

Interesting... so the IDE has a built-in compiler, instead of spawning commandline tools? And the commandline tools are faster than the built-in? O_o. Whatever happened to the decent Borland the wrote Turbo C and Turbo Pascal?
