HotBasic Goes Head-to-Head With Its Competition: Console Application Math Benchmarks by Norm Kaiser

In console application math benchmark tests, HotBasic compiler performance was found to excel significantly compared to VB .Net, Borland CPP, Dev CPP and REALBasic, considering run-times, application size and ram usage. HotBasic defied conventional wisdom regarding which computer language and compiler produces the most efficient executables. Updated: Dec 23, 2006
Compiler Library Statistics by James J Keene

Find out what C language users and compiler makers themselves think of C as a computer language, not by words but by their deeds -- namely, to date, none have bothered to write a real compiler for any variation of C. Written for fun in the style of a research report. Updated: Apr 10, 2006

21st Century Computing Standards by James J Keene

Explores what best executables are, how software writers have been abandoned by compiler makers and why compiler makers in any computer language do not venture to touch these topics -- namely, if they did, they would have to rewrite their compilers from the ground up. Much related material is presented in the design section and in numerous HotBasic Yahoo! Group messages. Updated: Dec 1, 2006
