Re: Bad Apple demos

Nice video, just shows the difference between C and assembler. Not quite, it's more akin to the difference between interpreted code and compiled. My code was reading what to put into the bytes onto the screen and doing so one at a time. mk79 wrote a program which interpreted the same sort of differ...

Well, QTop-Index reports 633.601, hence this system running QPC2 with QL/E is weighed 633 times faster than a BBQL. In other words it behaves like a 4.7GHz QL. :D
