speed of python 2.4

Hi,

In the page http://www.python.org/dev/doc/devel/whatsnew/node7.html
the last sentence says :
The net result of the 2.4 optimizations is that Python 2.4 runs the
pystone benchmark around XX% faster than Python 2.3 and YY% faster than
Python 2.2

What is the value of XX and YY ?

No, "what" is a word that is used to introduce some types of
questions. ;-)

The value of XX and YY, however, is unlikely to be known accurately
until there *is* a 2.4, rather than merely an alpha for 2.4. Alphas
generally contain things that are not in the final release, sometimes
debugging or logging code, sometimes experimental things, sometimes
things that are implemented only in an early form and are expected
to change.

How embarrassing! We got those interchanged -- it should have said
"Python 2.4 runs the pystone benchmark around YY% faster than Python
2.3 and XX% faster than Python 2.2". We didn't specify the number
system because if you knew the decimal equivalents it would just lead
to silly arguments, of which comp.lang.python has had quite enough
recently <wink>.

You need to fix your parser.

If he had written '"What" is the value of XX and YY'[*], then your
parse would have been valid. :-)
[*] Note:

a) Quoted "What"

b) No question mark

We're in danger of starting an infinitely recursive, self-referential
tower of posts here ... if you get my drift ;-)

I appreciate your attempt to be funny, but you are not
successful. Instead, this unfruitful thread is continued.

stop it until the real thing is there -- chris
