The task is very simple. Read a file of numbers and print the average. There are only two rules.
1) Run as fast as humanly possible.
2) Use C or C++ (inline assembly allowed)
Be sure to mention what compiler you use if you do anything nonportable. If I can't get your code to compile, it will be disqualified, so the more info I have on what worked for you the better.
