Are there any benchmarks?

Recommended Posts

There are a lot of comparisons of different languages benchmarked against each other doing things like sorting, fractals and other mathy things.

I find AutoIt to be very fast.  How does it compare against other languages like C++, Java, C#, etc.?

Also, what does AutoIt compile to?

Thanks!

..is as fast as Java ( or less ), secure as C# ( or less ), written in C++ ( or ASM ) and compiles to an EXE :P 
..so, you've been here since 2005 but have 25 posts, ...so, ...Welcome to the forum ? :) 

If you search the forum you'll find all these questions answered.

Very fast, really?

No, AutoIt is slow because fully interpreted (not actually compiled), so not a premium choice for either sorting, fractals or number crunching.


This wonderful site allows debugging and testing regular expressions (many flavors available). An absolute must have in your bookmarks.
Another excellent RegExp tutorial. Don't forget downloading your copy of up-to-date pcretest.exe and pcregrep.exe here
RegExp tutorial: enough to get started
PCRE v8.33 regexp documentation latest available release and currently implemented in AutoIt beta.

SQLitespeed is another feature-rich premier SQLite manager (includes import/export). Well worth a try.
SQLite Expert (freeware Personal Edition or payware Pro version) is a very useful SQLite database manager.
An excellent eBook covering almost every aspect of SQLite3: a must-read for anyone doing serious work.
SQL tutorial (covers "generic" SQL, but most of it applies to SQLite as well)
A work-in-progress SQLite3 tutorial. Don't miss other LxyzTHW pages!
SQLite official website with full documentation (may be newer than the SQLite library that comes standard with AutoIt)

I searched on terms like performance, benchmark and speed but couldn't find anything.  Can you tell me the correct term to search for because I would like to read those other threads.

OK, I didn't know that.  Thanks.

I tested a file io interaction with c++ and autoit. The speed was the same (file read etc.). :D

But in general autoit is very slow when it comes to special things and also there is no modern gui theme.

In my opinion you cannot compare autoit to languages like java. AutoIt is here to automate processes with simple syntax.
