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.

some years ago I've found a site whith a collection of identical bench for every progamming language, one for forth, one for c, one for c++...
the results were organised in a chart viewing all the spec, the machine, the system, the compiler...

I wanted to send the url to this guy but I'm not able to find it again....

(there'were some for perl and prolog for example)

if someone could send me the url, it would be nice
