Response to: Speed

Is there a particular application which you need speeding up? Several people who have made this type of comment haven't timed a "real" application - Jim Freeze's powerpoint presentation has some interesting slides (11, 12, and 13) where Ruby was faster than perl on a real task.


I'm not saying that RUby shouldn't be made speedier or better on Windows, just that I'd like to be pragmatic about it.

    It is more than "several" people. Matz, himself, has said it needs to be faster. Rite should do that but until then it still lags behind the "P" languages.
