Re: PCG32II Help file

Your "pcg.Range(1,s)" does about 300 Mhz for me on a single thread. Obviously the multi-threading is causing a massive slow down somehow.

Re: PCG32II Help file

hey deltarho[1859], An integer is needed, not a float. I am thinking it may be the overhead of the function call also and I am trying to convert the code so that it can be used locally in the thread. You say that it is running at 300 to 600 Mhz. My program does about 100,000,000 iterations per secon...

Re: PCG32II Help file

Hey deltarho[1859], I am experimenting with your PCG32II and have a problem. From the help file I simply added this to my program: #include "PCG32II.bas" Dim pcg as pcg32 And then call: random_number=pcg.Range(1,s) Where s is no larger than 2000. This code is called from tens of threads (v...

Re: GCC compile delay on large projects?

With compile delay do you mean compile time?

My project takes about 2 minutes to compile. Size matters allot especially with the optimization flags added in.

YouTube increases FreeBASIC performance (solved)

Hey all, Having YouTube open in Google Chrome increases the multi-threaded performance of my FreeBASIC program by about 5%. It does not happen with other web sites. Tested multiple times so this is not because of the margin of error and I have noticed this over a period of about 2 years. I am stupef...

Re: FreeBASIC 1.07 Release Discussion

@coderJeff, About the packages with different GCC versions. I see that you still default to GCC 5.2.0. Why is that? I am not sure what GCC my project needs. While it seems that higher may be better I prefer my project to be save. Won't it be a hassle to compile all these different packages every tim...

Re: Need faster Exponentiate

It is indeed faster and better and I will be using it instead. Thanks!

Re: Need faster Exponentiate

Thanks OSchmidt for your function,

I have tested it and it is a bit slower than Richard's for my program. As you say it could probably be optimized a little bit further and have not tried altering the i_0_11 parameter yet.

Re: Need faster Exponentiate

The problem with approximating diadic functions like a^b is that they cover an area rather than a line, so usually require two, or possibly three, approximations to get one answer. There are a few possible ways to speed it up further. 1. Implement it as macro “inline code” to remove the function ca...
