Topic: Ruby performance benchmarks

I came across this site today in a comment on a post on Loud Thinking: http://shootout.alioth.debian.org/

You can compare Ruby and other languages (like Java or Python or PHP) and see which is faster using various benchmarks.

Interesting site. smile

Re: Ruby performance benchmarks

Pretty cool. Before I even looked I knew Ruby would be near the bottom of the list. You don't get such a conveniently wonderful language without a price. Still fast enough for me though. big_smile

Re: Ruby performance benchmarks

I think it stacks up to PHP pretty well, at least. smile

Re: Ruby performance benchmarks

i dont understand a thing that says...lol.  How does ruby stack up against cold fusion? because i hate cold fusion and i was actually wondering last night.

Re: Ruby performance benchmarks

Unless I am completely daft and just not seeing it (quite possible), I don't think they have cold fusion among the benchmarks.  But if I had to guess, I would think cold fusion is probably faster.  But I'm not sure what makes me think that. big_smile

Re: Ruby performance benchmarks

Cold fusion is compiled to Java, so it's pretty fast.

Re: Ruby performance benchmarks

i always found a lot of large cond fusion apps to run slow under stress...maybe its just me, i dont know anything about the tech behind them...prob just poor code
