I have both the CRAN binary and my own compiled version of R v1.7.1 on the
same machine (Dell Pentium III 800 MHz running NT 4)
Using the example provided earlier:
> phi <- 1.6180339887498949
> a <- floor(runif(750000)*1000)
> system.time(b <- (phi^a - (-phi)^(-a))/sqrt(5))[3]
I get 10.99 secs on the CRAN binary and 2.09 secs on my own compiled
version.
I hope this helps someone ...
Regards,
John Marsland
