Yikes. I don't know what you did between the version you sent me a few days
ago and the 2000-07-03 version, but I LIKE IT. With the old version, running
my game2 program with an argument of 6 took
13.64 CPU seconds using Int.int's
25.05 CPU seconds using IntInf.int's
Pretty sad given that there are already hacks to make the case where the
numbers never get bigger than a fixnum (31 bits) speedy. The 2000-07-03
version, on the other hand takes
13.08 CPU seconds using Int.int's
13.65 CPU seconds using IntInf.int's
I.e., it costs me under 5%. Most excellent.
Did you have some kind of debugging turned on?
