    Default LLVM Clang 3.4 Compiler Performance Is Doing Good

    Phoronix: LLVM Clang 3.4 Compiler Performance Is Doing Good

    The release of LLVM 3.4 is imminent and with the major compiler infrastructure upgrade comes update to the Clang C/C++ compiler front-end, LLDB debugger, and other LLVM sub-projects. LLVM 3.4 is a very righteous release and in celebration of its forthcoming release, it's back into compiler benchmarking season at Phoronix.

    I don't see GCC 4.8 results thus this article becomes less useful ... almost useless

    ARGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!!! This is one of by pet peeves. Unless LLVM is consciously doing good deeds or acts of kindness compiling your code quickly into a fast binary (I don't think it cares), it should be "...Doing Well".

    The point of the article was to compare LLVM 3.3 against current 3.4:

    How hard is it to correctly state?:

    LLVM Clang 3.4 Compiler Performance Is Doing Well
    You feel good, a compiler doesn't do good, nor does its performance do good. It's performing well.

    Maybe it was just a giant joke Michael is playing on us? That's why he said it was righteous?

    English isn't his first language. If you want to correct him that's fine but I think it would be nice to do so with a little less attitude.
    It is a common mistake even among native English speakers.

    It's US English slang meaning (of the very best kind <a nightspot that's a dependable venue for righteous jazz>)

    See my post above in regards to righteous, and your wrong on both accounts a compiler does nether. But in the US both "Good and Well" are appropriate in this context.

    My father is in "Good" health.
    My father is doing "Well"

    The Compiler is in "Good" health.
    The compiler is doing "Well"

    In the US both "Good" and "Well" are not normally mutually exclusive.

    I also find it strange, that we consider the US's native language to be English, when the American spoken language is actually made up of English, German, French, Spanish, ...

    In my family we address many things by there Polish name. And I am not even Polish but my wife is.
