Writing that machine code generator is one of the funnest things I have ever done. It was done purely for performance reasons. We were trying to sell a targeted application framework and we got lots of questions about the performance of the script engine. As it turns out, it was more than adequate and get even more so as machines got faster but people didn't buy that so I figured out a high performance option. Once I got it done it was fascinating to evaluate its performance. I found that it was neck and neck with Visual C++'s unoptimized code and I was very, very happy with that. The interesting thing was comparing the performance with VC++ code that was optimized. That really showed me the power of optimization because in some cases I saw a 50% improvement. In the stuff I was most interested in, which was numerical computations, it was more like 20% but that is significant. Back then, the fastest hardware was just getting into the 200MHz range so optimization was very important. Now, we are in the multi-gigahertz range and CPUs barely register any usage at all when running that application, which is still being actively deployed.
