Actually, my benchmarks are totally off (I was just wondering if I had
screwed up my last built because the SqueakOnC numbers don't match up).
I noticed a horrible slowdown of my machine and checking it showed that
the JVM was happily taking 100% of my CPU (actually *two* JVMs both
taking 50%). It looks as if quitting via the window close button keeps
the JVM happily running in the background.
So here we go again:
SqueakOnJava: 5,509,641 bytecodes/sec; 324,946 sends/sec
SqueakOnC: 203,013,481 bytecodes/sec; 5,797,002 sends/sec
So that's between a factor of 20 (sends) and 50 (bytecodes). Not bad.
Not bad at all.
