Subject: Re: Is lisp this slow? From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 2000/07/11 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Richard James Panturis Giuly <firstname.lastname@example.org> | Below I have to similar programs one in lisp, the other in C. No, you don't. Others have explained why in great detail. | Is that the best it can do? The right question for you to ask is "is that the best I can do in Common Lisp?". Others have explained better things you could do in great detail. I'd like to ask you a different question: What did you expect to learn from this comparison? In my opinion, using naively coded examples with bugs in them is _not_ a good way to compare anything. #:Erik -- If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
