Thanks, that shootout site is interesting.
A shame that the shootout site doesn't have speed test entries for
It would be interesting to know on what flavor of tests that well-done ASM might
offer speed advantages, and the magnitude of any such speed advantage.
I'm wild-guessing that at least some of the compute-intensive tests could be won
by well-written ASM, but perhaps that guess would turn out wrong. Would be
interesting to know.

Thanks for your response. I have to admit, I knew _of_ Ada, but I don't
My experience is that once I started using the Standard C++ Library
templates and boost, my C++ programming began to feel rather like what you
describe with Ada. But then you have no pointer arithmetic and optional
garbage collection, which would be advantageous.
What is the speed of Ada compared to C/C++? See for yourself at:
Compare the CPU time benchmarks for Ada 95 with the CPU time benchmarks for
gcc and g++.
