I was curious tonight to find a Relative speed difference between Visual Basic and Visual C++. So I recorded the Second and Millisecond before and after the operation of adding 1 to a Long 1 million times.
Visual Basic took 230-260 Milliseconds to do this.
Visual C++ took 10 Milliseconds to do this.
So Visual C++ is at relatively 26x faster then Visual Basic in just adding Integeres together.
I thought that some people might find this information... interesting.
The machine that it was tested on was an AMD K6 550Mhz, Slot A. 192 MB of SDRAM 100Mhz.
