  • Jules H. Gilder


At the beginning of this book I said that one of the advantages of using machine code was that it runs very much faster than an interpreted language such as BASIC. But just how fast is fast, and can we calculate the amount of time a piece of machine code takes to execute? The answer is yes, and we shall now see just how to do it.
