A collection of formatting benchmarks

  • Speed, compile time and code bloat tests from tinyformat.
  • int-benchmark: decimal integer to string conversion benchmark from Boost Karma
  • itoa-benchmark: decimal integer to string conversion benchmark by Milo Yip

Building and running int-benchmark:

cmake .
make
./int-benchmarks
