I thought (and think) that the measurements are sufficiently accurate, and the
differences sufficiently marked to support the speed claim. I also ran the test
with much longer cycles, checked the reported time with wall-clock time, and
obtained comparable results. Repeating each test several times, and discarding
outliers reduces the impact of other processes. What sort of inaccuracies are
you concerned about here?
Of course, this is far too narrow a test from which to draw any broad
conclusions about the speed of the implementation.

I presume you mean on ~nix. I'm using Windows, and I'm not aware of a similar
facility (which doesn't mean it doesn't exist).

I compared pre-compiled functions in each case. Can you explain why what you
suggest is fairer?
Other than that, cool.
It is, isn't it ;-)
