I forgot to add:
I assume what you're using here are hand-translated versions of the
SciMark benchmarks to each of the various languages? Is it:
...? What about the C version? I'd be interested to run it through Clue
and see what happens.
Incidentally, I have tried to compare LuaJIT 2 with V8, but V8 doesn't
seem to want to build easily these days. Last time I tried it I recall
that it wasn't particularly fast compared to LuaJIT 1 anyway!
Anyway, it's very good to see this out, and it's impressively fast. It'd
be very interesting to try doing traditionally high-CPU tasks with
LuaJIT 2 and to see how well it works; I work in the mobile phone
industry and it is *frightening* how shoddy the code tends to be. It'd
be really nice to move away from traditional languages like C and C++
and towards scripting languages like Lua.
Now I just have to wait for an ARM version...
