General Development This article discusses a small-scale benchmark test run on nine modern computer languages or variants: Java 1.3.1, Java 1.4.2, C compiled with gcc 3.3.1, Python 2.3.2, Python compiled with Psyco 1.1.1, and the four languages supported by Microsoft's Visual Studio .NET 2003 development environment: Visual Basic, Visual C#, Visual C++, and Visual J#. The benchmark tests arithmetic and trigonometric functions using a variety of data types, and also tests simple file I/O. All tests took place on a Pentium 4-based computer running Windows XP. Update: Delphi version of the benchmark here.

How to remove the CLR
by null_pointer_us on Thu 8th Jan 2004 19:59 UTC

>> Article: I first tried to eliminate the CLR from the Visual C++ benchmark by turning off the language's "managed" features with the #pragma unmanaged directive, but I was surprised to see that this didn't lead to any performance gains.

Just start a new, unmanaged project and add your Standard C++ code to it.
