I don't know if John is still following this thread or not, but if he is, thanks for finding that note. Those pages covered the mathematics so I could proceed directly to the software engineering needed to write an efficient program. It also helped to look at the sample code included in the post.

@ejolson,

Glad it helped! Wish you were here.

When silly discussions have gone on long enough jamesh locks the thread. Everything goes dark.

Sooner or later the realization will set in that the RPi forum is focused towards support / Q&A topics. A bunch of old programmers shooting the shit or sharing a trick or two isn't part of the program. Any of the old farts that feel the moderator kids are being obnoxious, feel free to join us here,

Dart Fibo

It seems like Dart and Swift both use names that are oxymoronic to their performance.

Nim does fibo(78) in .008 seconds on the RPi 4B.

In the case of Swift, it's more about how quickly/easily you can implement a solution to a task rather than how fast that implementation will run.  Considering that it caters to quickly being able to put something together for I-devices, I guess it's a fair tradeoff.

The Swift ARM maintainer agrees there is a problem with the Swift string engine. I hope he follows up with it. I've done all I can.
