> In basic benchmarks, it’s 12x faster than a Python implementation

Oh well, my friend, why didn't you use Numpy?




Numpy would be faster, and so would PyPy as I point out. I'm comparing unoptimized implementations on purpose and not trying to incite some kind of language-speed-flamewar.

Think about this sentence for a few minutes, then come back so we can all have a good laugh at ourselves and the fragility of human pride.

EDIT: Downvoted? This was not meant with any kind of meanness at all. No matter what choices an author makes with benchmarks, someone will complain. The situation is so catch-22, a laughter is the only effective self defense.


To avoid sparking flame wars, avoid posting meaningless metrics.
