You know, even though many people may disagree, C/C++ are still high level languages. Since I have registered to the CBoard I've seen numerous arguements about the speed differences of C and C++. I think that we should put them both to the test, with lets say... 200-500 million iterations of some kind? with different kinds of situations. So we could compare exact code, then OOP C++ with C, etc. Then when compiling we would have to make sure that all of the same compile options are selected, etc. There might be some websites with 'statistics' of some kind, but if we do it ourselves then we will all know the kind of sacrifices we give up when using C++ rather than C, and C rather than C++. Does this sound like a good idea?
