* Those tables are /not/ identical. Take a close look, they all differ in the
last element.


* this is just an example how one could use Benchmark. 

In my real case the result is processed seperately [code]
dosomethingwith(format("\\symbol{circled%d}=%s",s,toa)) [/code], where s and toa
may vary and my intend was to find out, how to generate these string parameters
