    Programming language speed

    Computer Language Benchmarks Game


    Personally, I think there is an unfair bias towards C++, since the chosen benchmark used in the "Compare performance" link at the top shows C as being more than 3x slower than C++, while the "Fastest" link at the very bottom shows C as being slightly faster overall than C++.

    Oh, and I think the benchmarks are flawed in general, because I seriously doubt that Fortran is 5 times slower than C.

    The flawed benchmark link at the top detailing why benchmarks are flawed makes a much better reading, from my cursory look. The rest is just the usual useless hogwash.
