newbie question

I have a question regarding performance!

I have a module (test) with a record test defined .i.e


-record( test, { field1, field2, field3}).

-export([ compare/2 ]).

-compare( A, B ) when record(A, test), record(B, test)
	case A#test.field1 > B#test.field1 of
		true -> "A>B";
		false -> "A/>B"


The reuse of 'test' as module name and record name helps reduce the number of atoms used,
but would this have an impact if any on performance when more complex calculations are done?
