If I run a python3 program with "import pdb" in the code, would it
execute slower than without loading the debugger?
The program I am running is computationally expensive and mathematically
orientated. It is expected to run for a few months (I am a few days in).
I found out today that I forgot to comment out the "import pdb" while
debugging, and now I am wondering if there would be a performance
benefit worth restarting the execution with pdb unloaded.
I have tried testing this with a simple sum executable, but I don't see
a clear difference with short execution times (<5 mins). Before I
investigate further, I thought I would ask and see if anyone knows the
