From: Blair Zajac <blair@o...>
Subject: [Caml-list] Timing Ocaml
Reading that the bytecode interpreter for Ocaml runs 2/3 as fast
when compiled with VC 6 compared to gcc, has anybody done any
timing comparisons with VisualStudio.Net, Intel C++ 5.x or
Intel C++ 6.0?

If I were to do these timing tests with these compilers and
with different gcc versions (2.95.3, 3.0.4 and 3.1) which
script/program should I use to get a fair estimate of the
compiler?

Also, in INSTALL, it says

* The GNU C compiler gcc is recommended, as the bytecode
  interpreter takes advantage of gcc-specific features to enhance
  performance.

What is the nature of these optimizations?

Blair
