Subject: Re: How I lost my faith (very long) From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Wed, 20 Feb 2002 12:06:09 GMT Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Kenny Tilton <firstname.lastname@example.org> | Now tell us again how C++ is just 10% less effective than Lisp? This is easy, really: When you do things that can be done well in C++, Lisp is 10-15% more efficient than doing it in C=+. When you do things that can be done well in Lisp, using C++ instead fails completely. This is no mystery at all. /// -- In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none. In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
