Does Ruby 1.8.0 improve in file I/O speed and pattern match speed?

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Weng Lei-QCH1840, Aug 15, 2003.

  1. Hi, rubyists,

    I'm using ruby 1.6.8 (2002-12-24) [i586-mswin32] and find file I/O too slow. Is ruby 1.8.0 faster? Some one in the list said speed is quite dependant on how ruby is compiled. Is that true?

    For IO ruby 1.8.0 is significantly faster than 1.6.8: My I/O intensive
    test suite runs in 1.5s with ruby 1.8.0 and in 24.3s in ruby 1.6.8.

    I'd say that is a pretty substantial improvement :)

    Cheers,

    Thomas
