<mailto:jython-users at lists.sourceforge.net>Hello,
I was reading about the new gcc 3.0 release, and something that caught
The GNU Compiler for the Java Programming Language
What is GCJ?
GCJ is a portable, optimizing, ahead-of-time compiler for the Java
Programming Language. It can compile:
* Java source code directly to native machine code,
* Java source code to Java bytecode (class files),
* and Java bytecode to native machine code.
Compiled applications are linked with the GCJ runtime, libgcj, which
provides the core class libraries, a garbage collector, and a bytecode
interpreter. libgcj can dynamically load and interpret class files,
resulting in mixed compiled/interpreted applications.
Would code get any significant speedup by going jython -> .class files
