Compiling is the 303rd xkcd comic.
c++ code usual takes a lot of time to compile in a large projects, half an hour or more. If you start compiling on the same machine you can't work anymore until it finishes. So you could go ona lunch or slack off.
"'Are you stealing those LCDs?' 'Yeah, but I'm doing it while my code compiles.'"
