Please, do real-world tests. 10% slower startup time isn't significant in most cases, where interpreter startup time is about 0.1-30% of total execution time of a script that does do something real. > Once we're done with the basics, we could also consider offering prelink > for programs where startup time is the most important factor, even > though this goes against security. Maybe it'd make sense to let our > users (Owl install admins) build e.g. PHP with prelink (for frequent > invocation via CGI). Why support obsolete interfaces like CGI and lazy-bind general purpose apps in favor of few unrealistic use cases where anything performance-sensitive supposed to be running in form of a CGI script? Not only php-fpm and mod_php are much faster than CGI by themselves, but, unlike CGI, they allow bytecode caching. Download attachment "signature.asc" of type "application/pgp-signature" (837 bytes)
