9569Ocaml and Python (was: Writing to many files)
- Apr 1, 2008I have made changes to my source from what I have learnt from your
emails as well as replies from Richard Jones.
I have also replaced my Str-functions with Scanf.
That did not bring about significant improvement in the execution
I did a comparison between my ocaml and python-efforts. This is not a
scientific comparison. I am an amateur programmer who mainly uses
his hobby to create tools for system administration. I have regularly
used Python about 8 years ago and rarely since then. For the past 5
years most of my programming was done in Ocaml. So I am not an expert
using either language.

The last two tests was on a quad-core server with 8G ram. The second
test was done over the last weekend before I made the abovementioned
changes to my Ocaml code.
