[Python-Dev] patch: speed up name access by up to 80%
Tue, 12 Feb 2002 12:40:11 +0100
Some other things you might want to try:
* Inline small dictionary tables in the PyObject struct and only
revert to external tables for larger ones. (I have an old patch
for this one which you might want to update)
* Optimize perfect hashings. Sometimes (hopefully most of the times)
Python will generate a perfect hashing for a set of attributes.
In that case, it could set a flag in the dictionary object to
be able to use a faster lookup function.
BTW, could you run pybench against your patch ?
