  • AMD A10 3.8 GHz, 8 GiB, Windows 7 64bit.
  • Compiled on VS2015 RC if possible, VS2013 elsewhere.
  • Take it with a grain of salt.

Language requirements

  • must embed from C++.
  • must be self-contained (no BOOST, no LLVM backends).
  • must compile on vs2015 (or vs2013 at least).
  • must link statically.
  • must not require (heavy) makefiles/cygwin/build-systems to build.
  • must use jit/optimizations if available.

Test requirements

  • must compare fair between languages. for example:
    • must not use yield/coroutines on recursive fibonacci test.
    • must disable threading if possible (not all languages are thread-safe)
    • etc

Upcoming (soon)

  • creating a class to handle them all (relevant)
  • @todo {
  • add exe size
  • add iteration benchmarks
  • add string benchmarks
  • add script->native round trip
  • add native->script round trip
  • add memory consumption
  • add memory leaks
  • add time to set up
  • add final thoughts
  • also, create a score chart, based on:
    • small
    • clean
    • type (interpreted/bytecode/jit)
    • fast
    • containers
    • OO
    • closures
    • bindings
    • 32/64bit
    • threading
    • thread-safety
    • coroutines/greenlets
    • debug capabilities
    • zero-configuration based (drag-n-drop files on solution/project)
    • ...
  • }

To evaluate (someday... maybe)
