These are interesting numbers. You estimate 10pps difference between ASP
and REBOL peak peformance.
a) I wonder if there are cases in which REBOL outperforms ASP?
b) Peak pps performance is not the only criteria for language choice.
c) How about letting ASP handle what it's good at - MS db access - and
letting REBOL do the rest? (I.e. REBOL requests db results from ASP and
uses them, when necessary?
BTW, Do you happen to know of a stanardized benchmark that tests more
than peak performance?
