Subject: [Caml-list] OT: Java Performance

Given the number of performance-related discussions in this maillist of 
late, I thought I'd forward this article:

It's about Java, but I think it's still worthwhile reading for Ocaml 
programmers.  The lesson to learn here is that performance is tricky- what 
you think will obviously be a problem often isn't, and what you think 
won't be a problem can be.  Make it work correctly first, then measure 
performance, then enhance for performance if necessary.

Another comment that applies to both languages is that if it's a glaringly 
obvious problem, the compiler people are probably already working on it 
(or possibly already solved it).
