This is really a fun reading, cause I think this gonna make a lot of Java users going crazy. So if you ususally write some Java code, please read it. You will understand why i really consider Python as a rich and fully usuage alternative, and why this is the “one”.
And again Ian Bicking ( which is really proselic now), have a nice way to explain why you can have the same performance in Python as in C.
Speed is a Process, not an Attribute. I’m quite sure that it’s the way every projects should go, not because C is a bad language but because it is something hard to tailor, or worst for refactoring.
