  • Your C code searched a different (larger) space than the Perl and Parrot versions.

    And you used only a single space in each.

    Suggestion: run the test for spaces 1e4, 2e4, and 3e4 for all three languages. Then we can do some comparisons.

    For additional bonus bring in Python and Ruby, maybe even Java.

    For additional additional bonus, do not compare only running times but also memory use and "executable" (whatever that means for each language) sizes.

    • well - as I stated beforehand, the tests are preliminary to get a first impression anyway. For what we will try (oo framework for gui programming) I will have to set up a more elaborate test case anyway. What I am looking for is the performance when the instruction and data caches start to overflow (at 32kb each, this should happen rather soon). Then I will have real performance data :) btw, the numbers in the "ps" shows the sizes: 4.7M for parrot, 1.6M for perl.
