README

This document was created to track the performance of CJDNS builds on various platforms, with and without compilation flags. Each build utilizes gcc, while the CJDNS version is noted in each case.

Note: I am by no means an optimation update. If anything is incorrect or could be done better, feel free to open an issue or pull request.

Tested Devices:
