A friend of mine sent me this. It is a benchmark of a bunch of languages. Turns out Java 1.4 was not so bad after all. Square root of x divided by zero: The speed, size and dependability of programming languages: "The Computer Language Benchmarks Game is a collection of 1368 programs, consisting of 19 benchmark reimplemented across 72 programming languages. It is a fantastic resource if you are trying to compare programming languages quantitatively. Which, oddly, very few people seems to be interested in doing."
