I just had a look at these very detailed benchmark tests,
http://www.bagley.org/~doug/shootout/, and I was surprised to see that
often java is 20 times faster than python !!
How can this be? Both languages interprete bytecode. Maybe because java
has a JIT compiler ??
Is there any hope that python might become faster in future releases ?
Any ideas ?
