Last updated 21 July 2008.
At this time we have five sets of benchmark data online:
- Our genuine R6RS
benchmarks consist of portable R6RS top-level programs.
- Our fake R6RS benchmarks
are written in R5RS Scheme, and test the performance of a
wide variety of popular implementations.
- We have a
very few benchmarks for an early version of Common Larceny.
- Our older benchmark results
may still be of some interest because they
include some timings for C, C++, Java, and SML/NJ.
- The Kernighan and Van Wyk
micro-benchmarks were written to test the performance of a variety
of scripting languages, including Scheme.
They include several good tests of file i/o, and have been
incorporated into our
fake R6RS benchmarks
and have been improved upon in our
