Does anyone know more about Instant Pascal's execution speed on modest
benchmarks such as Wirth's 8-Queens or the other benchmarks commonly
I am curious about just how efficient the compiled 68000 machine
language is. I have heard that it is 80% the speed of reasonable
hand-coded assembly language, but that seems unlikely because it is
The company told me on the phone that it is 50-100 times slower
than what one might expect from a compiled Pascal program running on
the Macintosh (if such existed). This didn't really answer my question.
Any leads on this would be appreciated.
