optisa - determine which variant instruction set is optimal to use

optisa instruction_set...

optisa prints which instruction_set out of the ones specified in the command will perform best on this machine. In this case, ``best'' is defined by the order in which instruction set names are returned by isalist(1). Possible values for instruction_set are given in isalist(7).

The following exit values are returned:


One of the instruction_set values you specified is printed by this command.


There is no output; that is, this machine cannot use any instruction_set that you specified with the optisa command.
