But what the heck, they're fun. :-)


prabhaka$ ruby --version
ruby 1.8.7 (2008-08-11 patchlevel 72) [universal-darwin10.0]
Ruby Elapsed 4.885692

prabhaka$ macruby --version
MacRuby version 0.5 (ruby 1.9.0) [universal-darwin10.0, x86_64]
Ruby Elapsed 0.251436

Roughly 20x faster!  That would make us comparable to Lua for this benchmark -- about 30x slower than C.
