And a performance like assembly? Laughable. How can an interpreter which has to parse and interpret every line each time it is encountered ever hope to come close to the native machine code? Such nonsense can only be claimed by people who have never tried or understood what assembly or machine code are all about. Even in the old days some people never really understood the overhead involved with parsing, interpreting and then executing a single line of a higher level language.
It can't. That's why I laugh at such hyped-up claims. Script kiddies these days. Laugh | :laugh:
