CryptoPad Classic

Integers vs Longs
by Steven Noonan
June 15, 2005

In For-Next loops, I've found that longs are significantly faster than integers, especially if all the advanced compiler options are enabled. I'm seeing that the larger the loop, the better the Long type is.

Here are the statistics:

Integers Longs
11,717,770 13,724,226

Integers Longs
573,445 830,997

Note: While there are no plans for ceasing CryptoPad development, the development phase has been inactive for over six months. There is a possibility for a C version of CryptoPad Classic to be developed. Would anyone support this idea? If people would like development to continue, please let the lead developer know.
