Hey Jon, if you're in this thread, are you able to post any
of the code that you use for tsv parsing?
Code has been open-sourced:
The performance benchmarks showed in the talk are not in the
repo, the benchmarks currently listed are from a year ago. I'm
planning to update the repo in the next few weeks, probably
after the next LDC release.
If there are questions about specific types of things perhaps
a thread in General forum would work.
Watched the video some time back, interesting results. Any
plans to blog about this? It would be great if you could run
them through a profiler too, see why D is so much faster.
Would be really worth writing this up, maybe on the D blog.
Thanks for the feedback. I'm pretty close to publishing the
benchmarks, they'll go in a doc file in the repository. They
weren't quite complete when the meetup happened.
Regarding a blog post - I haven't talked to Mike Parker, if
there's interest I'd be open to it.
As to why the tools compare so well - That's a really intriguing
question, especially since the tools favor using high level
constructs from D / Phobos rather than hand-built data structures
or memory management. I have hypotheses, but no sure answers.
Some of it likely involves design choices rather than language
facilities per se, but even so, it's a good story for D.
