17:23 bearophile Hello
17:24 bearophile I've read the long technical report that uses some of the RC data
17:25 bearophile I will ignore the the expected "But my beloved language X is not present"
17:26 bearophile The technical report says that those Python programs don't use OOP, this is mostly caused by their very small size. OOP is infrastructure useful to organize larger programs.
17:26 bearophile And regarding the performance comparisons, it's not just a matter of languages, but also coding style.
17:26 mikemol bearophile: Please use the comments page at the link.
17:27 mikemol This is exactly the kind of thing they want to hear.
17:27 bearophile You can sometimes write efficient code even in Python, but most Python entries don't do that because that's not the main point of little Python programs.
17:27 bearophile Oh
17:28 mikemol :)
17:28 bearophile In my entries I have written two, three or even four D entries to show short programs, fast programs, etc. Various styles...
17:28 bearophile I will think about sending them some comments, then...
17:28 mikemol Please do; they're really looking forward to hearing about problems they haven't addressed.
17:29 bearophile I see.
17:29 mikemol I get the impression they haven't submitted the paper for formal peer review yet, and your points are precisely the kinds of things competent and knowledgable reviewers should be bringing up anyway.
17:29 mikemol You'll help them out a ton by pointing all this out.
17:30 bearophile Someday I'd like to write some kind of free ebook with an explanation of tens of RC D entries.
17:31 bearophile See you later.
