Since I have been implementing several systems to this date, I tend to
caused the 10% CPU overhead. So I simply try to not write code
fragments that I know where
bad for performance. Then I just want to share that info with you
people on the list.
Why write Slow and Ugly code when you can write Fast and Beautiful ;-)
In many (well almost every project I haven been working in) the
prototype tend to be the
I do agree with your overall philosophy in code making.
But Fast code will (nearly) always be Faster than Slow code!
Windows-98 is still faster than Windows-XP even on modern machines. The
previous statement is just a
rumor, have not tested my self for obvious reasons.
