Benchmarking
Gambas is an interpreted language, with no "just-in-time" or other compilation to native code at all up to the 3.2 version.

Here is some little benchmarks stolen on the Internet used for comparing Gambas and Gambas JIT-compiled with interpreted Python and Perl.

The tests were done on my own machine (Intel Core2 Duo @2.33GHz / Ubuntu 12.04 64 bits), by running them with the "time" shell command, and by adding user time and system time.

Note there is a little time used for compiling the source files in all languages.

Almost all benchmarks are stupid!
