I think it time to move the bickering about cpu-level optimization etc to another thread.


Looks like Unknown1 was faster than you expected ;) -- this thread has already been partially moved.


So I noticed. :) Was the thread already split when I answered the message, I wonder. :)

Anyway, it's nice to hear from people that actually do have an understanding of when it's worth optimizing.


I don't know who said it first: "Too early optimization is the root of all evil." :)

Or this one: "The best way to lower the time to run a certain piece of code is to not call it."

@ JustusJonas:

easy: int is signed whereas int32 is not -- now you tell me that code with those typedef's isn't obfuscated?

If I recall correctly I already posted the exact quote of the ansi c++ standard. If it isn't as mighty to you as it is to me then keep on hacking...

ok i think i finally get what you mean... if mixed int32 up with uint32... :(

so int32 is indeed strange :blink:

I believe it was Donald E. Knuth who put it this way: "Early optimization is the root of all evils"
