">I don't think Don wanted to compare the JIT's. I think he wanted to
know which system would be faster for him, personally. If he's using
certain ImageEngineer filters a lot, then that's a good test.
If ImageEngineer is not native software, he will be comparing JIT, if he wants that or not."
That is the idea. I am interested to know if functions I use regularly in Image Engineer on Amithlon will run faster or slower on MOS. It would be easy to write a script to run several functions, but that one will give a good enough idea. The program is written in 68k assembler, so a JIT emulator will be used in both cases.
Is it twice the speed, half the speed, or about the same? That is the question. A difference of 30% is not significant.
Image Engineer can be bought from Kicksoft. It's a very handy program.
