Use code generation options and optimizations to improve the execution speed
of the generated code. You can modify or disable dynamic memory allocation,
which can affect execution speed.
Parallelized code can be generated by using
When available, take advantage of preexisting optimized C code and specialized
libraries to speed up execution.
