Think about it. -O2 is a compiler flag. Optimization happens at compile time. NOT at link time. If the function is defined in another .c file, how can the compiler, which compiles on .c file at a time, possibly have access to the definition, let alone inline it. That's why we put inline function that are supposed to be called by other .c files in a .h file. Am I wrong?
