Hi guys! On day 5 around 9:10 - 9:45 Casey explains inlining, and seems to be indicating that changing an argument from a pointer to a value may make this easier / possible for the compiler. I understand his explanation of pointer aliasing, that occurred just prior, and I understand that the compiler has a harder time optimizing around pointers, but I don't understand how any of this effects the compiler's ability to inline. Was Casey's mention of function inlining, perhaps, just a tangential topic, given the function was small, or is there actually some way having the argument passed in as a pointer instead of a value could deter compiler inlining.
