[Openmcl-devel] cl-bench Windows 32-bit performance

Sorry to reply so long after the original mail.

If you are looking at these figures, please be very careful
to understand what each benchmark measures.  These
are microbenchmarks, some of which exercise only
particular features.  For example, ctak is a program
that spends all its time in catch/throw, which is never,
in practice, a performance bottleneck.  Others are
written in a style that is rarely used any more in Lisp,
doing things old ways.  And whatever you do,
DON'T compute a mean or median; the benchmarks
are not comparable.  Just general advice about
interpretation.
