D - Re: Java vs C Benchmarks

This was another interesting find. -M.

"The story of Jython begins in the spring of 1997 while I was working on my PhD
at MIT. While doing some benchmark work comparing the performance of Numeric
Python to a variety of other programming languages, I was amazed to discover
that Java was as fast as C-code for some simple numeric benchmarks. Previously,
I had been uninterested in Java because I saw it as an inferior replacement for
Python. Now I saw the possibility that Java could be a replacement for the ugly
and error-prone C code that I was writing for the performance intensive parts of
my systems."
