local bm = require './benchmark'
local reporter = bm.bm(6)

use locals

reporter:report(function()
    for i = 1, 1e6 do
        local x = math.sin(i)
    end
end, 'slow')

reporter:report(function()

pre-create table space

reporter:report(function()
    for i = 1, 1e6 do
        local a = {}
        a[1] = 1; a[2] = 2; a[3] = 3

        a[1] = 1; a[2] = 2; a[3] = 3
    end
end, 'fast')

use table.concat to concat strings in a loop

reporter:report(function()
    local s = ''
    for i = 1, 1e5 do
        s = s .. 'aaa'
    end
end, 'slow')

reporter:report(function()
    local t = {}
    for i = 1, 1e5 do
        t[#t + 1] = 'aaa'
    end
    s = table.concat(t, '')
end, 'fast')

reduce, reuse, recycle

reporter:report(function()
    local t = {}
    local time = os.time
    for i = 1, 1e5 do
        t[i] = time({year = i, month = 6, day = 14})
    end
end, 'slow')

reporter:report(function()
    local t = {}
    local time = os.time
    local aux = {year = nil, month = 6, day = 14}
    for i = 1, 1e5 do
        aux.year = i
        t[i] = time(aux)
    end
end, 'fast')
