Speed

[ #13794 ]

I compiled perl 5.8.1 RC3 on Mac OS X Server 10.2.6, on a dual proc G4/1.25 GHz, with 1GB RAM. I've never really used a dual proc machine before, and I noticed it was a lot faster than my G4/867 PowerBook (lots of reasons ... faster CPU, faster bus, faster disk, more RAM) ... but then I did make -j2, and woooosh! It's kinda weird seeing output from compiling Encode about preparing the various encodings while also seeing output from the Storable compile interspersed.

All tests passed, BTW, except for the expected bsd-db failures.

  • On my 12" pbook, everything in Final Cut Pro takes just about forever compared to the dual processor powermac.

    dual processor = good. faster processors = good. more memory = good. :-)
