I put at http://www.math.purdue.edu/~lucier/srfi-27/ some gambit-specific hacks to the new SRFI-27 reference implementation that boosts performance to about 4 million random reals/second and 3 million random small ints/second on a 1200 MHz Athlon with DDR SDRAM memory running linux. Brad Lucier PS: I just noticed that dynamically loaded files in Gambit-C 3.0 for linux are compiled by default with *no* optimization. Ugh. I suggest that before configuring Gambit-C 3.0 one change lines 342, 343, and 349, respectively, of lib/gambit.h to #define ___CC_O "gcc -O1 -fno-strict-aliasing -fschedule-insns2 -fomit-frame-pointer -c \$(CC_O_ARGS) -D___SINGLE_HOST" #define ___CC_O_SH "gcc -fpic -O1 -fno-strict-aliasing -fschedule-insns2 -fomit-frame-pointer -c \$(CC_O_SH_ARGS) -D___SINGLE_HOST" #define ___CC_CMD "gcc -fPIC -O1 -fno-strict-aliasing -fschedule-insns2 -fomit-frame-pointer -c -D___DYNAMIC -D___SINGLE_HOST -o %s.o %s.c" The -fno-strict-aliasing is required for correctness when using gcc-3.0 or higher (and is accepted by 2.95.*, for which it is the default).
