Subject: [Caml-list] OCaml speed
Hi, 

I used the array access example from http://www.bagley.org/~doug/shootout/
to compare c/c++ speed against ocaml. The sources I used are attached below.
Unfortunately I could not confirm the given cpu times which are 0.11 sec for
gcc and 0.13 for ocamlopt. My results on a Compaq Alpha True64 are 
0.05 for cxx, 0.1 for g++ and 0.29 for ocamlopt. Does anybody have an idea 
what could be the reason for this inconsistency? Did I do anything wrong?

	done 
  done;
  Printf.printf "%d %d\n" y.(0) y.(lix);
  let time1 = Unix.times() in
  Printf.printf "Zeit = %f\n" (time1.Unix.tms_utime -. time0.Unix.tms_utime);;
