[erlang-questions] io_lib:format R16B03 performance and jsx impact
Tue Jan 28 10:54:01 CET 2014
The code for formatting float when doing it through io_lib:format it
written in pure Erlang. The reason that io_lib:format is implemented in
Erlang is because it allows much greater cross platform formatting
capabilities, alas at the cost of performance.
Why you see a performance drop in between R15B03 to R16B03 I don't know, if
you could create a minimal reproducible benchmark that shows the difference
that would be great.
If you want to have a speedy conversion of something you know is a float to
a textual format you should use float_to_list/binary as that is meant to be
a fast conversion, but with less flexibility.
