I didn't say it was. I'm well aware of .NET and what it is and isn't. I worked on VStudio Whidbey, FFS.

Do you ever "blame" the intermedate gcc format for front ends that doesn't optimize the code much?


This isn't about blame. This is about stating a fact. None of the compilers shipped with any flavor of .NET that targets any flavor of the CLI optimizes very much, if at all. And when one writes code it pays to know what the compiler is actually doing with it, lest someone make some bad design decisions (like trying to use enums for state machine internals)

It's all punted to the JIT, and the JIT just doesn't optimize much.

You can wrap a response to that in as many words as you like, but it doesn't change the facts on the ground.

And it won't get me to start using enums in my state machine code internals.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
