readme.txt

A collection of C++ benchmarks of string splitting, most of which were collected from:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9378500/why-is-splitting-a-string-slower-in-c-than-python

Most of the implementations are taken from the Stack Overflow question, and
some new ones have been added since.

Please keep in mind that this is a micro-benchmark, so the results may not be
representative for your use case.

You can use the provided Makefile to compile all the programs, and
run_tests.bash to run all the test cases.

A script to generate test data, gen_test_data.py, is included. It will
automatically be executed by run_all.bash if the test_data file is not
present. It generates 2,000,000 lines (827MiB) of data.


## Contributing
Additional (significantly different) implementations are welcome. As are
improvements to existing ones.
