# __COPYRIGHT__ This subdirectory contains a harness and various timing tests that we've used to decide on the most efficient implementation of various pieces of the code base. We're checking these in here so that they're always available in case we have to revisit these decisions. NOTE: This harness is for horse-racing specific snippets of Python code to select the best implementation to use within a given function or subsystem. It's not intended for end-to-end testing of SCons itself. Contents of the directory: README.txt What you're reading right now. bench.py The harness for running the timing tests that make up the rest of the directory's contents. Use it to run one of the timing tests as follows: python bench.py FILE Various command-line options control the number of runs, the number of iterations on each run, etc. Help for the command-line options is available: python bench.py -h is_types.py lvars-gvars.py [etc.] The rest of the files in this directory should each contain a specific timing test, consisting of various functions to be run against each other, and test data to be passed to the functions. Yes, this list of files will get out of date.
