It depends what you're doing. Even the Java zealots admit this. Personally I see no reason why GCJ-compiled code (using GMP for BigInteger) shouldn't be reasonably fast. Of course Sun's BigInteger support is slow, they don't open source the code so they can't use libgmp! -- Matthew J Toseland - [EMAIL PROTECTED] Freenet Project Official Codemonkey - http://freenetproject.org/ ICTHUS - Nothing is impossible. Our Boss says so.
