Shootout! (07 Jun 2001 at 19:19)
I submitted a program (in Standardish ML) to the fun Programming Languages Shootout Page today, for the echo client/server test. It comes in 4th in that benchmark, after C, C++, and O'caml (another ML).

The fact that my program runs only 12% slower than the C version (and is half as many lines of code) is a good argument for my plan of rewriting the standard internet services using MLton! (Which, by the way, I have been working on recently... I'm now tackling ftpd.)
