Hi, all:
  I'am new to erlang, after investigate some benchmark such as at
http://shootout.alioth.debian.org/u64q/which-programs-are-fastest.php, I
found that erlang compiler is not so good at speed? the benchmark shows
that erlang Hipe is 13x slowdown compared to C++, as compared to Haskell
GHC (3.3x slowdown), go 2.98x slowdown or even javascript v8 is about 1x
faster than erlang, I investigated the erLLVM project which reported
similar results to Hipe, you know performance is so important nowadays,
what caused the hard to improve performace of erlang or just there are not
people working on it? Erlang is attractive to me after several days
studying, but with great performance will be more attractive and
competitive to some languages such as go etc.
