Shootout, 2! (16 Jun 2001 at 00:26)
The MLton folks implemented the missing tests for their compiler in the Programming Language Shootout; that shot mlton pretty high up in the standings. Today I rewrote the reversefile benchmark; previously mlton ranked something like 12th, now it's 7 times faster and in 3rd place (#1 for memory use).

So check out the standings: MLton is tied for 2nd place with O'Caml, losing to C by only 1 point!

Don't believe anyone who says high-level languages are necessarily slow. Hooray!
