Python Speed Question and Opinion
Hi I am fairly new to programming but not as such that I am a total beginner
From what I understand C and C++ are faster languages than Python. Is this
because of Pythons ability to operate on almost any operating system? Or is
there many other reasons why?
I understand there is ansi/iso C and C++ and that ANSI/ISO Code will work on
If this is the reason why, than why don't developers create specific Python
Distrubutions for there operating system.
Please don't take this the wrong way I am totally one for standards. I am
just looking at these forums and there is a lot of ...RE: Python Speed Question and Opinion

Can't find your original post here Irmen ...
Might be an idea to mention that `list.sort` will include built-in
...FSB speed same as memory speed?
I have a laptop whose specs say "400-MHz Front Side bus". Does this
mean that it will run ddr-400 pc3200 memory at full speed?
there is very little flexibility for memory in laptops.
fsb 400 really runs memory around pc2100. PC2700 runs at 333.
what they do, is double it so 200 becomes 400 and 400 becomes 800 and that
is where the fsb speed is taken from for memory. I would think PC2700 would
work if you can get the right configuration in the memory chip.

When I change the line description of an ethernet card using CHGLINETH,
there are two parameters I am not sure about, LINESPEED and LINKSPEED. What
is the difference between these two?

According to the manual
LINESPEED appears to be a setting pertaining to

I'm trying to get a handle on the difference between 400 Mhz front side
bus and 533 Mhz front side bus. Would there be much of a difference
between the two for use with either a Celeron or Pentium M? Is there a
"rule of thumb" as to what bus speed is suitable for different
processors? I'm looking at possibly getting a notebook in the next 1 or
I'm a part time IT student and I'm trying to start up an IT business

Right now I have a client with the following:
They have a program (lets call it program A) containing around 20 tables and
queries and forms...
This program is on a server. The company have 8 computers and each computer
have an access to the server via a shortcup that point to the mdb file.
Everything is running fine
I have make some change to a copy of this file. This program has no tables,
but is linked to the tables of the program A
But now it is slowlier, is it normal because of the link ?

I implemented a lexer in Pylly and compared it to the version I
had written in Flex. Processing 219062 lines took 0.9 seconds in
C (from Flex), and 5 minutes 54 second in Python (from Pylly), a
ratio of 393 to 1.
Is this normal for Python, or does Flex produce better parsers
than Pylly? I have been looking at the code produced by Flex to
see if I could translate it to Python automaticly. But it has a
lot of goto statements, and I haven't figured out how to
translate those to Python efficiently.
What are the average times used for text processing of Python
compared to C?
I am writing some routines to play with stock market data. What is
available to me at the moment is VB 3.0. It is abysmally slow when it comes
to number crunching large arrays of data with nested do loops.
I am not interested in fancy screen output.
Is each successive version of VB faster than the previous version? If so,
how much, considering number crunching only? Would I be better off with
another program entirely?
I have programmed in Fortran, Pascal( just a little), Microsoft Quick Basic
and Microsoft Professional Basic.
My platform is a PC.
