trivial terminal speed benchmark

April 28, 2010

today, while playing with st, I tried a very simple benchmark.
here it is:

	$> time seq -f 'teeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeest %g' 999999

here are the results:

	xterm: 0m28.508s
	rxvt: 0m8.568s
	st: 0m12.082s

all the terminals shared the same fonts, but xterm and rxvt had saveLines=1024 set for scrolling purposes, feature that st lacks.

being st at such an early stage of development, I think this is a good result.
