Larry's comment is ensmilied, but seriously: my investigations into
interpreter performance bottlenecks indicate that pragma integer won't
get you much at all if the basic expression overhead is still 1/30 or
so. Out of that 30-times-slower, the actual float-that-could-be-int
calculations are (I estimate) maybe 2 or 3 of the 30 times.
Of course, if in reacting to "pragma integer" Larry meant that he'd use
a completely different, leaner, meaner, embedded expression interpreter
for *all* operations, including looping and such... well then, as Emily
Litella said..... "Nevermind".
